BI: Boozey actress is about to lose her kids.

[Any guesses? Always be good to your staff, bitches. ]

A world-famous actress has had a secret video recording of her suffering a terrifying drug and booze overdose presented in a court as part of her bitter child custody case, can reveal. Radar has chosen not to identity the superstar caught on camera — other than she is a middle-aged Hollywood figure who has won major international awards for her on-screen work.

But this website can report that a disgruntled former assistant of the actress — she is one of the most recognizable faces to appear on the silver screen and has starred in dozens of films — provided the cell phone video to the woman’s estranged partner. He subsequently used it in support of his bid to strip her of custodial rights of their children. The case is currently before a judge and remains under court seal.

Both parties involved are purportedly prevented from discussing it publicly. According to well-placed sources, the ex-colleague of the top star told court that she had overdosed on a potentially lethal cocktail of Xanax, Vicodin and Ambien, which she knocked back with up to eight bottles of top-shelf Dom Pérignon champagne. However, in response to the charges, the actress denied it was an overdose: She insisted that she suffered a seizure brought on by the stress of the custody fight, one insider revealed. In an exclusive interview, the assistant, who also cannot be named, spoke to Radar about the terrifying ordeal which is said to have occurred in April this year.

“On this particular day, I left her for an hour or so and went to go and get her food because she hadn’t eaten for days,” the assistant said. “When I returned, I found her on the dining room floor face down. I turned her around and was shaking her and trying to wake her up. She opened her eyes and started convulsing. “She could have been out for an hour. “I thought she was dead or dying. That is why I recorded the video because I wanted to make sure no one thought we killed her.” Although the asisstant said friends were eventually able stabilize the hard-partying star, they were horrified to learn she’d taken some of their prescription drugs.

They discovered a “stash” in the home, where the troubled actress had been staying after her partner kicked her out of the family home. “I noticed my bottle of Xanax and Hydrocodone had been touched because my purse wasn’t where I had left it,” the assistant added. Despite the lucky escape, the star refused to be treated at a hospital or enter rehab. “She didn’t want to go because she didn’t want the media to find out,” the assistant said. “We gave her water and took care of her (until she was better).” The pal feared the incident was a deliberate attempt to kill herself.

“She would always talk about killing herself,” the assistant added. “She knows she will die young like her mother.”

The actress lost custody of her children following a nuclear confrontation with her partner around the same time as the overdose. She is still fighting to regain some custodial rights.

"World-famous actress", "superstar", "a middle-aged Hollywood figure who has won major international awards for her on-screen work" does not suggest fucking Kelly Rutherford of all people.

(Besides which, Rutherford's mother is alive -- see 2nd to last paragraph in BI.)

I don't think Kelly Rutherford qualifies as world famous - plus, her career has not been in movies.

by Anonymousreply 1608/19/2013

On the other hand, Halle's mother is still alive. Who's a world famous actress, starred in lots of movies, and has a mother who died young? And is in the middle of a custody battle?

" Who's a world famous actress, starred in lots of movies, and has a mother who died young?"

Madonna, if you use a very forgiving definition of "actress".

Is the latest ex-husband giving trouble over custody?

Angelina fits 2 of those 3: dead mom & big star, but is she quietly separating from Brad?

Angelina fits but her and Brad seem to be together but who really knows. Gwyneth is rumored to be moving back stateside but she's not middle-aged and hasn't starred in many movies.

Sorry but who the fuck is Kelly Rutherford?

You know 35-40 is middle aged and it says partner not husband. Maybe it is Jolie.

Hm. I kept thinking Kate Winslet. But she has already remarried and so I imagine that divorce was settled.

[quote]You know 35-40 is middle aged

No, As commonly defined, middle age starts at 40. In another ten years. It'll be more like 45. People are living way longer than they used to.

by Anonymousreply 2508/20/2013

A big clue is mom death - that helps to narrow things. Gwyneth's mom is still alive. Angelina's mom is dead. Angelina has big problems with drugs and there have long been rumors of problems with Brad. Surprised they'd say boozer. Isn't she a heroin addict?

Not sure about Kate Winslet. Need more info. Is the mom dead?

Is Julia Roberts' mom dead?

Wouldn't be surprised if CZJ - she's a train wreck. Is her mom dead?

by Anonymousreply 2608/20/2013

The way they say "major international awards" makes me think it is not an Oscar or Emmy but something like a BAFTA or Cannes Film festival.

CZJ and Julia Roberts' mothers are alive.

Sandra Bullock's mother died young but I kind of don't think Jessie or whatever his name was wants custody of the kid she adopted.

by Anonymousreply 2708/20/2013

Okay, Julia's and Kate's moms are alive as far as I can tell. Can't find CZJ in pics with mom. So maybe it's her or Angelina.

I know it's a stretch, but I'm thinking it's Golden Globe-winner Madonna.

Not known as an actress, but I think that'd the deflection. She won an international award for her "acting."

Mother died young.

She has two kids with Guy Ritchie (one son natural, one son adopted), and it was a bitter divorce.

She is middle aged.

I think the dead mother is a fake out. I think this is Catherine Zeta Jones. Other than her, the only other person this would come close to is Melanie Griffith. Except I don't think she has any minor kids unless Stella is a minor. Also her mother isn't dead. But everyone knows Melanie and Antonio aren't together except for photo ops and she has had problems with alcohol and drugs for years. But my #1 choice is Catherine Zeta Jones.

By the way. If I could start a thread I'd start one about how Dl was right all the time because Wentworth Miller came out today.

I think it's CZJ age fits this blind except for the mother dying young part. I saw an enquirer headline just this week talking about her messy divorce.

I seriously doubt porn star Jenna Jameson has an assistant, porn stars really don't make that kind of money, this is someone who is very rich and famous..

by Anonymousreply 4108/21/2013

This is so obvious, it's jenna jameson. her mother died when she was a child and she physically attacked her assistant a few months ago. She has done over 100 films and has her own company. She is an actress- a PORN actress.

by Anonymousreply 4208/21/2013

And if any of those big names were actually dealing with custody issues "in court", we'd know about it.

Brad and Angie, Michael and CZJ, Madonna and Guy, do you think they'd let some dumbass family court judge decide custody issues? That's what they have lawyers for.

It's Jenna Jameson. If it had been someone on the A List, we'd have heard about it.

this has to be somebody big--movie star big. I say CZJ. A) she's bonkers, having come out not so recently as bi-polar. B) the Enquirer is buzzing about an upcoming divorce between she and Michael Douglas, and the Enquirer is ALWAYS right. ALWAYS. and C) Michael Douglas gave a weird interview just a few weeks ago where he said his divorce with his first wife should have happened 10 years earlier. The quote was something about how it benefits marriage counselors to keep couples together long after it's apparent that they shouldn't be.

Another vote for JJ

by Anonymousreply 5308/21/2013

The court procedure sounds suspiciously French. In France there are all kinds of protections re the press and celebs (particularly in private life) whereas in the States all court dockets are public info.

I so hope its Julia Roberts, but I doubt it. I can't imagine its Jolie.

Unfortunately Juliette Binoche comes to mind. Two kids, ex-partners, mother died young, international super star (highest paid French actress ever - not really a Hollywood actress, but she has won the Oscar. She's won awards all over the planet.

Binoche's refrain: "My earliest memories are of loneliness."

I'm going to be pissed if its that tramp Jenna J.

As a Lesbian, let me explain something about Jenna Jameson.

She had her own company and, after she made at least 20 million in profits, she sold it to Playboy.

She is literally as wealthy as she is screwed up on drugs and drink.

Sharon Stone has younger children. She is rarely seen with them.

by Anonymousreply 6808/21/2013

But Stone adopted those last two kids alone, didn't she? The first son was adopted with the newspaperman in SF.

Stone also owns her own homes. Who's going to kick her out of her own home?

Christ, who is it?

by Anonymousreply 6908/21/2013

Sharon Stone per wiki:

On February 14, 1998, Stone married Phil Bronstein, executive editor of the San Francisco Examiner and later San Francisco Chronicle.[45] They adopted a baby son, Roan Joseph Bronstein, in 2000.[46] Bronstein filed for divorce in 2003, citing irreconcilable differences.[47] The divorce became final in 2004,[48] with a judge ruling that Roan should remain primarily with Bronstein, with Stone receiving visitation.[47][49] Stone adopted her second son, Laird Vonne Stone, in 2005,[50] and her third son, Quinn Kelly Stone, in 2006.

looks like she adopted her youngest two on her own? so no shared custody?
