    Wait a minute, I thought he spent “2 hours” talking to police after it happened? That’s what was reported here. I read it.

    That said, this is wise. It protects/hides him, help with his anger towards women issues and gives him perspective.

    LOL @ Emile takes these allegations very seriously. Can these publicists be any more transparent?? LOL

  • Mayra

    I really hope he gets better soon. Everybody makes mistakes, he’s a good actor and I’ve always think of him as nice guy.

    Predictable. Checking into rehab is always the first thing their reps have them do as it looks better in court.

    He checked into a rehab a few days after the assault …. um, did he try to apologize to the woman he almost killed? No remorse?

    Notice no expression of remorse for the poor woman he nearly KILLED. She said she was terrified as she felt the front and back of her throat almost touch. He nearly killed her. KILLED. I hope everyone understand that.

    We have wait until this goes to court and all the details come out, but if the reporting is correct and it does turn out to be a nasty, unprovoked attack on a woman he didn’t know, then this is indicative of a very serious underlying problem and I don’t mean the alcohol.
