Defendant: Leo DiCaprio's Story is a Cover-Up

Aretha Wilson, the woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio‘s face with a glass, now claims that Leo started the confrontation between the two.

The woman’s lawyer requested a toxicology report on Leo from the evening the events occurred as well as his medical records, according to TMZ. Aretha‘s counsel also claims that Leo didn’t report the incident for three days and that witnesses’ testimonies don’t line up.

Leonardo DiCaprio has fully cooperated with prosecutors on this case for over five years,” his lawyer, Blair Berk, tells JustJared.com.

“It is outrageous that this woman – who has a long and violent history, and became a fugitive to avoid standing trial in the United States when she assaulted our client five years ago – is now making up lies to further avoid responsibility in this matter. This is a classic example of the victim of a violent crime becoming the victim once again.”

I’d still love Leo if he did start it but I doubt he did. I just watched What’s Eating Gilbert Grape last night, love Leo!

Leo is no angel. But im sure he would let it go if it was really his fault and bury it instead of drag it out for 5 years

Get serious, Aretha. It’s already proved that you’re a nutcase.

Honey, you’ll be lucky if you get ONLY rehab from this.

Halli, you’re an idiot. He needed nearly 20 stitches to his face. That’s NOT ‘just a cut’.

# 7

The man is no angel but this woman seems like a nut case I don’t trust anything she says and as it was said if he had something to hide why drag all this for 5 years?

No one messes with my Leo DiCaprio. I hope he wins, lovveee him.

@4 ya id like to seen you get broken glass to the face and needing 20 stitches ‘little cut’ my @ss….poor leo my god!!

apparentl leo confronted her after she called one off his friends a f@g and from what i hear leo has a big mouth on him and certainly wouldnt back down from a fight esp if someone he cares about is in the middle off it and when he turned around to walk away she hit him from behind with a broken glass……what a PSYCHO whatever he said didnt deserve what he ended up getting, i am all TEAM LEO on this

haaa leo dicaprio is far from an angel and thats for sure…..still gotta love em tho hes got the sexy bad boy rough around the edges thing going on mmmm

does anyone know was leo single when this happend out of curiosity?

a broken glass to the face and neck….DAAAM that musta hurt like hell

ya he didnt report it for 3 days the man was probably in ER or surgery getting stitches ot whatever after some crazy bittch attacked him glass….DUH….that doesnt even make sense shes clearly pulling the last straw on that one

@ He likes her but not for a wife: She does look rough. It’s the scar that gets me. It’s like she wants to damage other people’s faces out of anger for her own appearance. She stood trial in T.O. for assaulting her ex and then he jumped off a balcony and died. Something is fishy with that particular situation.
.
@ellen: I heard that take on the events too. If anything it makes Leo look better in my eyes that he stands up for his friends.
.
I hope Leo’s team throws the book at her. No-one has the right to attack someone that way and flee for five years.

No one is an angel, but no one deserves to be attacked. If he was the “cause” of this, why would he be pressing charges 5 years later? Why did she run to Canada to avoid trial? She also assaulted a guy in Canada.

@ Halli: He was slashed on the neck, not the cheek. It required 20 stitches.

@ Sarah: He was dating Gisele Bundchen at the time.

omg imagine if leo died that night, how messed up would that be….and how bad would that freind feel that he stuck up for, he already probably pretty bad seen as leo took a glass to the face for him, goes to show what a good friend he is tho. what are the odds it was connolly?! high im thinking…

gisele really?? cause u never saw any pics off her like coming in or out of the hospital or him either for that matter…..guess that goes down to his art off deception again doging paps! didnt him ad gisele break up pretty soon after this tho??

CanadaGirl @ 08/23/2010 at 9:03 pm

Hey, JJ. What’s going on with the comments? Posting is a right pain in the a$$ lately. :)

@sarah:

He was dating Gisele . At that moment I remember she was working in Brazil and he was partying in LA with Paris ex boyfriend Rick Solomon . This happened at his party !
