Leif Garrett Responds to Rosie O'Donnell's Claim That He Was Banned From Her Talk Show

Leif Garrett Responds to Rosie O'Donnell's Claim That He Was Banned From Her Talk Show

Rosie O’Donnell said that actor and singer Leif Garrett was one of the five celebrity she banned from her talk show back in 1999.

Well, now Leif is disputing what she said.

“One guy, Leif Garrett, came with a fresh wound from a pipe that he used for crack. He sort of gnawed it out. So when I met him in the green room, he had a normal face and he came out a few minutes later and he had a huge red welt of burn from being in the green room those 20 minutes I didn’t see him. People who are that messed up shouldn’t be on TV,” Rosie said earlier in the week.

Now, Leif is firing back.

“No, that’s not even how it came close,” he told TooFab. “I don’t know if she’s got Alzheimer’s or doesn’t remember what happened, but it’s on YouTube. You can watch the clip on YouTube. She said I had a little burn on my face from using crack, which is so not true. First of all, I would never do anything like that.”
