During a taping of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” a woman leapt up from the audience and rushed toward that episode’s guest, Colin Farrell. Yahoo! News has the details:
No one was hurt during the incident, which happened on Thursday afternoon and was initially thought to be part of a skit, Sgt. Neil Gunn of the Burbank Police Dept. told Reuters. When it became clear that her intentions were less than friendly, the woman was hustled away by the show’s security staff. A policeman on the scene advised her not to come back or she would be arrested for trespassing, Gunn said. Entertainment gossip TV show “Access Hollywood” identified the woman as Dessarae Bradford. It said she had unsuccessfully alleged in a small-claims lawsuit that Farrell stalked her with inappropriate calls and text messages. Access Hollywood, quoting an audience member, said the woman shouted at Farrell, “I’ll see you in court,” and Farrell replied, “You’re insane.”
You know for a brief, uncomfortable moment, Colin was all, “Holy shit. Do I have ANOTHER baby momma?” And then was all, “Whew. Thank God, it’s only my STALKER.”
