Brooke Shields calls reporter's actions "reprehensible and disgusting"

Brooke Shields is threatening legal action against a reporter who checked her mother, who suffers from dementia, out of an assisted living facility in New Jersey.

Shields claims a tabloid reporter checked her mother, Teri, out of the facility under false pretenses to get a story.

The National Enquirer claims that the freelance reporter has known Teri for ten years, and they are friends.

We spoke with the Old Tappan Police Department, and they told me that while the investigation is ongoing, they are leaning towards not charging the reporter with a crime.

Tune in to Showbiz Tonight on HLN at 11p ET and 11p PT.

    The reporter, The National Enquirer and the assisted living facility who allowed Teri Shields to be checked out should all be held responsible for this. I can't believe the police are thinking of not charging the reporter with a crime.
