In other celebrity news: before we left for most of the month, Kiefer Sutherland was embroiled in a brouhaha after head-butting fashion designer Jack McCollough over something to do with disrespecting Brooke Shields (we know, we know, it still sounds bizarre to us too — but we have to type it, so it’s twice as tough on this end). Now it looks as though the two have made amends and charges are likely going to be dropped. We read this to mean that there was probably some sort of settlement going on in the background, making the problem go away using the power of a few saddlebucks. So, with this economy, we have learned the one quick way to stay afloat for fashion designers: somehow offend Brooke Shields, get head-butted, and there you go, plenty of capital to ride out the storm.
“I am sorry about what happened that night and sincerely regret that Mr. McCollough was injured,” said Sutherland.
As for McCollough, he accepted Sutherland’s apology, saying: “I appreciate Mr. Sutherland’s statement and wish him well.”
In the days following the incident, Sutherland was charged with misdemeanour assault. And while charges have yet to be officially dropped, multiple outlets speculate that all signs point towards Sutherland being in the clear.
