Brooke Shields has finally broken her silence about the Kiefer Sutherland headbutting incident. Almost one week after Sutherland allegedly headbutted a fashion designer for bumping into the actress, her lawyer released this statement to Showbiz Tonight:
"A number of statements have been attributed to Ms. Shields in the media that are neither true nor authorized. These statements were obviously made by those who were not in attendance at the party and constitute their version of events. While at the party she was bumped into by Jack McCollough and Kiefer Sutherland became concerned. Kiefer has always been a gentleman in her company. Both Jack and Kiefer are friends of Ms. Shields and she regrets this unfortunate situation."
With friends like those...
Kiefer Sutherland's attorney also got in on the action and told Showbiz Tonight:
"We are troubled by the untruthful and self-serving information circulating regarding Kiefer Sutherland and events of last Monday evening. We are confident, however, that the investigation being conducted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the NYPD will confirm that Kiefer Sutherland was neither the instigator nor a wrongdoer in this incident. Out of respect for this law enforcement process, Kiefer Sutherland will not be making any comment."
