[Blind Gossip] They are both actors, but he is the more successful of the two. The last few months have been pretty bad. It’s not her. It’s him. That easy-going, nice guy persona of his goes straight out the window when the liquor goes down his throat. He gets mean when he drinks. Not physically abusive. Yet. Just lots of nasty comments.
She may love him… but she wouldn’t put up with his nastiness! So, after asking him several times to get help, she finally told him that she was walking away. He’s the big star and she walked away from him. That made him look bad, so the first thing his team did was to get him help for his drinking, right?
Wrong! The first thing they did was to spin it as if SHE was the problem! They had to blame the grown man’s problems on someone, and she was an easy target.
Well, the girl is young, but she’s definitely not dumb. She told him that she wasn’t going to put up with him blaming her for his problem, and that she wasn’t going to be with him again until he was sober. He refused to go to rehab, but he did hire a full-time monitor to sit on him.
Now that he hasn’t had a drink for a couple of weeks, his publicists are busy spinning again. He’s fine! And the couple is fine! All is well! Nothing to see here!
We have to give this girl a lot of credit for doling out the tough love. She came back – just as she said she would – but she is now being very cautious. Just because he has sobered up for five minutes doesn’t mean that all is forgiven and everything is back on track. She will play nice in public (after all, she is an actress), but just know that she is being very wary about fully committing to a long-term relationship with him.
