Finally someone making news other than Lindsay Lohan, Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise. Unfortunately, it took a crazy woman and a dozen stitches to do it. Leonardo DiCaprio was assaulted at the home of Rick Salomon early Friday morning.
In a statement released to People, the actor’s publicist, Ken Sunshine, says: “While leaving a small private gathering, Leo was attacked by a woman who was trespassing and had been repeatedly asked to leave the property. The attacker struck him with a glass object before being restrained by witnesses. The woman was reportedly looking for an ex-boyfriend, who she had apparently physically assaulted on prior occasions.”
DiCaprio was at the party hosted by Salomon (Paris Hilton’s ex, who starred with the hotel heiress in their notorious sex video), when at around 4 a.m., the woman hit him in the face with what appeared to be a beer bottle, a source reports. After the incident, an ambulance wasn’t called but friends took him to a hospital for medical attention, where he received about a dozen stitches near his ear, says the source. Law enforcement authorities have begun a criminal investigation into the matter, according to DiCaprio’s publicist.
A lesson should be learned by all of this. Any association with Rick Salomon, and you’ll end up in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
