  • Gary Oldman domestic violence allegations: Actor's son says, 'I was there; it didn't happen'

After domestic abuse allegations against Gary Oldman resurfaced this week, the actor's 20-year-old son, Gulliver Oldman, penned a letter defending his father.

Donya Fiorentino - who was Gary's 3rd wife and married to him for 4 years - expressed frustration with the Academy Monday on the heels of her ex and Kobe walking away with golden statues.

"In the case of my father, there is only innocence", he wrote.

Gulliver launched a passionate defence of his famous father in an open letter calling Oldman "his hero" and "the man he aspires to be". "However, I was there at the time of the "incident", so I'd like to make this radiantly clear: it didn't happen".

Russian Federation urges handover of eastern Ghouta in Syria
It includes 5,500 food and flour bags enough for 27,500 people, in addition to wheat flour, medical and surgical items. Early Wednesday, sources showed heavy bombing by government-backed aircraft and artillery in a town in Eastern Ghouta.

"In my eyes it is disgusting that so-called "journalists" have seen fit to spread and perpetuate the lie", he wrote, adding, "It's a shame to see that "clickbait journalism" or judgment by headline, is created to make one jump to conclusions without receiving the full range of fact that may be detailed in a piece, whether it be online or otherwise". Best Actor and Best Animated Short, respectively.

Gary Oldman has said the allegation is "replete with lies, innuendos and half-truths". He was later granted sole legal and physical custody of Gulliver and his brother Charlie after a prolonged investigation and trial following the couple's 2001 divorce. Custody of children is not given to a wife beater, and under most circumstances, hardly ever a man.

After the Oscars ceremony ― the first in the wake of Hollywood's reckoning with sexual harassment and violence ― Fiorentino gave an interview calling out the awards' hypocrisy.

Donya Fiorentino, the actor's third wife whom he was married to from 1997 - 2001 - told TMZ: "Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars". He said to Seth MacFarlane this year, 'I thought you were going to do the Oscars again.

The new law will be presented to the Council of Ministers - France's equivalent of a cabinet - later this month. Ms Schiappa told AFP news agency that her ministry was "very glad" that the higher age was chosen.

This was a night where the founder of the #MeToo movement shared the Oscar stage with other prominent activists; where three of the actresses who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct were honoured with a special segment; and, female presenters and winners made a point of supporting each other publicly.

"She has been a sad and very troubled person most of her life", he wrote. Yes, she brought me into this world. "I lost my self-esteem, I was broken", she said.

"I want only to protect my father's character, as a person and as an actor".

When the Academy booted Weinstein in October a year ago, it said that it did so "not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues, but also to send a message that the era of wilful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behaviour and workplace harassment in our industry is over".
