Nikki Blonsky's Dad Is Released

Nikki Blonsky‘s dad Carl Blonsky has been released from police custody, reports ET.

Last week, Hairspray’s Nikki Blonsky, 19, and her dad got into a tussle with America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden and her mom. Originally, Carl Blonsky was denied bail and would have had to remain in custody.

Carl, who’s been locked up in a Turks and Caicos islands jail for over a week, was freed after posting $3000 bail awarded to him by the Chief Justice on Monday morning. He was charged with grievous bodily harm, which carries a maximum punishment of five years. Despite posting bail, he must remain on the island and his travel documents are in police custody.

Nikki and Bianca were both charged with assault and were both released on $6,000 bail while Carl is due to appear in court on August 19 at 9:00 a.m.

    Answer to # 1……. Racism

  • Kim

    Everyone that watched Top Model with Bianca knows that she has some attitude problems and that she is a complete B****. I completely believe that Bianca hit Nikki for no reason. Even the woman on the video that came out said Bianca just hit that girl for no reason. Why aren’t the Police using that video with the witnesses comments as evidence? And I don’t believe that Bianca’s mom is in ICU or that Nikki’s dad put her there. You see the mom in the video standing next to Bianca yelling. If she got hurt then she must have done it to herself.

    Rasicism my ASS

  • leerzej

    why didnt she let her sit down in the first place?

  • elle

    Nikki = Fat Pig!

  • Kada

    Nikki and her father are at fault for behavior like spoiled brats. Hopefully, Nikki will realize she is not a star or diva and get her fat self together.

  • Rita

    Now all her big smiles in photo ops and interviews just disgust me. Simply fat, ugly, disgusting diva.. and she only made one movie! Diva behaviour is acceptable only if you made at least two HAH

  • LuckyL

    Who cares? Does America celebrate criminals now? Please.

  • LuckyL

    Kim= dumbass but this had been discuss ad nauseum with more intelligent posters.

  • lozzie

    i’m pleased for nikki that he is out…at last she can give her dad a big hug :) i think vanessa hudgens getting sued is much more funnier to laugh about than this…hahahahaha

  • toni

    glad to hear this. maybe when the real story comes out people will stop bashing this family. there have been videos and stories and none were the same. as always, the press ran with the most sensational story true or not.

  • nana

    Finally! That was just ridiculous to not grant him bail. For goodness sake he didn’t murder anyone!

    Poor Nikki. I love this gal and she must be devastated by this ugly turn of events. Hope it is not true about her dad, but if it is she still has many people who adore her and will stand by her.

  • mimi

    Glad to hear he was released on bail. Where is he going to run to? Hope the injuries were not as severe as they sounded and everyone will be ok. Nikki Blonsky must be so sad right now. What a shame for all parties involved.

  • Bre

    Good news! I hope all of this is cleared up soon, I can’t bare it :(

    WHO CARES THEY NEED TO KEEP THOSE FAT PIGS IN JAIL

  • http://justjared.com Sophie

    She is a SLUT!!!!
    She is a FAT PIG!!!!
    She has NO life!!!!

  • http://rlnt.org Anthony

    Calling her fat only make you look stupid and pathetic. She ws saving her family a seat when bianca came and tried to take them so nikki stood up for herlself im sure bianca started it as well its not like nikki just got up and started hitting her.

    FYI she may be bigger then the you uys who are bashing her, but shes wayyy more successful then you will ever be so think about that.

    and racism? are you saying shes a racist? we are talking about a girl who in hairspray where half the characters were black

  • james

    She and her family are racist white trash.

    Getting sue by creditor is not a crime. Many hard working people have been sue by creditor, which is very common.

    Getting arrested and being charge for fighting is a crime…if Nikki is found guilty, she can be facing 2 years of jail term. Nikki’s father has been locked up in jail until now…and that is worst than you think. Have you been in jail even for one day? Think about that. Try this for size, being in jail even for 24 hours, you can be beaten and rape by another ceil mate or group of ceil mates for both men and women.

    Think before you make a comparison.

    —————–

    And Nikki’s fans true colors come out. “Hey guys, stop bashing Nikki! She did nothing wrong. It’s okay for Carl to beat up a woman! Be nice! Don’t be mean! Instead, lets look at Vanessa’s woes! It’s more funny!”

    tsk tsk.

  • Magie

    Oh yay! I am happy he was released, he didn’t deserve to sit in jail till the trial because he has obivously understood what he did and that it was wrong. I hope this all gets sorted out because yes all parties are in the wrong to some degree but I don’t think that any of them deserve jail time. I am just happy that he is out and I am sure that his family is elated to have him out and able to talk to him, possibly see him if they are in T&C or fly down there. Just good news to hear!

    Sueing over contract disputes. Look at this way, I have represent client that have been sue over dissatisfying payment of contract. You can settle this out of court by offering more than what is owe, the plantiff would be satisfy. Also, there is federal law that you can only the 25% of a person earnings for contract and credit disputes.

    Do you prefer to be charge and trial for assault with bodily harm crime that might mean sentencing to prison for 2 to 5 years jail term. And even if the Nikki’s family squeeze out of this, still the public already view that her family is prejudice against darker race and voilent people. It doesn’t matter who started this, because the fight was about Nikki’s family hogging 5 seats and did not want to give one seat for one person. The one seat has Nikki’s family expensive bags and luggages in it. That makes the Blonski family very selfish. Take in mind that airport is very small and probably all the seats have been taken by people sitting in it, but that one seat was probably the only that did not have a human being sitting in it…just some very expensive bags. If the Blonski family would just give the other party one seat, this fight would have not take place.

    And lozzie, if you are that kind of people…I hope your future will not end up in jail for fighting.

    You can be racism and prejudice and still work with African Americans and other colored minorities. I am a minority and work with many racism and prejudice people. Remember you only have work part of the day but you don’t live in the same household with us, and you don’t have to deal 24/7 with us. It sounded like you are racist yourself, because blacks prefer being call African Americans in modern times.

  • TTTTT

    I heard the celebrity media say that Nikki is not news worthy. Look at now she just became news worth for the media. Nikki can be the Heavy Weight Boxer Champ that TKO that model in a boxing match called the thriller in T&C.

  • haha

    im happy that her dads out :)

    its sad that the model got off with a slap on the wrist.
    whos more likely to start a fight, 5‘2“ Nikki or a supermodel whos known for being a b****
    i guess justice means being a size 2 and having breast implants.

  • kewl

    lol good for him but he can still Diaf.

    Getting thrown in jail outside of the U.S.A., is terrible, according to Dog the Bounty Hunter. Most, hate Americans whether you are innocent or not. ( he arrested a heir killer ), in Mexico. ( charges were dropped ). The point is their sentences are much more severe and longer, and the guards are more abusive…. Nikki’s dad is lucky he is out on bail. The food is deplorable also. They make no exceptions to who you are either. If he IS sentenced, I doubt he will be allowed to transfer to the states, and will have to serve his time there…… I AGREE with KIM that they need to watch the video carefully, but they probably will not. They all are to blame in some compacity.

    He was terribly provoked. The black family started it, so they could harrass a white family and then cry racism. Typical.

  • Petey

    Makes me sick that fat people somehow think it’s OK to be fat and that the rest of have to like their stinky, obnoxious smell! It’s called “ass” and it’s a blend of shit and sweat, fermented under folds of unreachable skin that never sees fresh air or the light of day! Blecchhh!!!!

    If these pathetic individuals can’t stop eating, fine, just stay the F at home so the rest of us don’t have to see or smell your disgusting fat ass!!!!!

  • JaneyZ

    OMG! There’s an extremely overweight girl at my work that has that smell, but she thinks she covers it up with too much perfume. I am sooo tempted to tell her to just stay away from me at lunch time. Really some people are to much.
