Kelly Preston’s Statements, and an Update May 7, 2011

Posted by Syd in Uncategorized.

Yesterday, TMZ posted an interview with Kelly Preston, and she confirmed Charlie’s account of the bizarre accidental shooting.  If this is how the incident indeed happened, we apologize to everyone (Charlie included) for posting the misinformation about that incident, and I’ve added a comment to our original blog that addressed the timeline.  Thanks also to the commenter that provided the link(s).

Understand (as I said in the edited blog) that we would rather all of the situations he’s been accused of turn out not to be abuse.  Given the photographic evidence in one of the other cases, I don’t know how that would be possible, but we were never looking for things to accuse Charlie of – we were merely posting what had been posted multiple times over in various new sources.  As we did here, if new information turns up that disproves all of these other cases, then we will post an update, with our apologies.

However, I must emphasize that we would never want ANY woman to recant a story about abuse that DID happen.  We will be touching upon this subject in a future blog, but there are a myriad of reasons why abused women have recanted their stories, and we would never want anyone to think we want to silence them.  So many stories are NOT heard.

As we alluded to in our “About” section, we know that the name of this blog will change.  We never intended it to be “UnfollowCharlie” forever.  It really isn’t about Charlie Sheen anymore.  Over the last few weeks, we’ve been brainstorming about changes to this blog, and we’re very excited about some of the ideas we have, and we hope you will be too.

Thanks for your retraction. As for the “other cases,” you were wrong about this case. What makes you so sure that you were not wrong about the others? Celebrities often are extorted by people. I’m not saying this is the case with Mr. Sheen, but you don’t know that for sure now do you?

You were wrong about one case – you should be prepared for the possibility that you are wrong about the others as well. PS: In the photographic evidence you mention, does it actually show Mr. Sheen hitting the woman?

Think about all the evidence before you throw out accusations and condemnations next time.

We reposted what has been reported by news sources. If these women step forward and retract, we will update accordingly. If not, the posts stay. I’d be happy to be wrong about the other cases. I would be happy if those women weren’t abused. It’s not like we created any of these stories out of mid-air. Have you gone on to post the same comments on NY Times, Jezebel? All other new sources that discussed the same incidents?

But to your other point, so, for you to believe the violence happened, you need to see a picture of the aggressor hitting the victim? That’s actually frightening. God forbid a victim doesn’t report something because they don’t have photographic evidence of the attack in action.

You are ridiculous. Women lie to cover for abusers all the time, for a variety of reasons. He’s been convicted more than once. I think you have more research to do.

for the record, i retract nothing. zero. i gave his side of the story in the original blog and i feel it is fully sufficient.

it is horrifically negligent to leave a loaded firearm lying around with the safety off.
