Demi Moore's Half Brother In Jail For Beating His Girlfriend


I want you to think back to some famous celebrity beatings and threatening. Chris Brown beating Rihanna to an inch of her life. Jail time? Nope. Charlie Sheen threatening to kill Brooke Mueller while holding a knife to her throat. Jail time? Nope. Kelly Preston "accidentally" getting shot by Charlie Sheen's gun. Jail time? Nope. Think of a celebrity beating his girlfriend or wife and then tell me the sentence. There are none.


In Texas, however, Demi Moore's half brother got ten years in jail for attacking his girlfriend by beating her head with a telephone. Could you imagine if the same thing happened in California? Half the actors in Hollywood and a good portion of the actresses would be spending some serious time in jail.

Damn. Chris Brown did not beat Rihanna within a inch of her life. Hell OJ beat Nicole to death. Ike Turner beat Tina's ass to within an inch of her life. People die from domestic violence all the time . Try changing some damn legislation but quit bitching about WTF happened years ago!

He deserves that much time. But so does anyone who commits domestic violence. Unfortunately it usually takes multiple acts of violence before the law will do anything more than give the offender a stern lecture and a slap on the wrist. And I know this from personal experience.

what is this guy's name? I only know of one half brother, and he is not in jail.......

Lots of famous people, unfortunately, have family members in prison, and sometimes for far worse crimes (Woody Harrelson, Jann Arden, to name a few). This is no reflection on Demi.

You know what they say - you can choose your friends, but not your family.

I've always said I wished Lindsay Lohan would get in trouble in Texas - cause we'd know how to lock her ass up for a long time...

Demi looks so much like Kyle from RHOBH in that photo.

Digal704, so there is a statute of limitations on outrage over domestic assault? I never knew that. I was under the impression that if some man beat up a woman we were allowed to let that color our perception of him forever after. Thanks for enlightening me. I guess I should just get over it, right?

Also, don't mess with Texas -- or the people in it. The popo down here don't play.

Texas has more respect for women than many folks think.

That is a gorgeous blue colored dress and looks very pretty on her with her coloring...

Yeah, Chris Brown sucks, can't stand him, but I think Enty is exaggerating here. He did not beat Rihanna to within an inch of her life. The woman had bruises on her face, but come on. The crime was bad enough (ANY violence is unacceptable) without exaggerating it, Enty.

What is the deal with her hair? Is that an elastic band/pony tail thingee at the bottom?

That's because all the judges in Cali are liberals.

In Texas, we have a saying: "You mess with the bull, you get the horns."

Chris Brown, don't come to TX and try that BS. You'll either get your bully ass kicked by the woman-du-jour or you'll get the slammer. Little sh*t like you would be very popular.

@crila16
Please. Don't bring politics into this.
It is because California is so bankrupt they can't afford to keep anyone in jail for a substantial amount of time. That is why their jail sentences are so pathetic.

Chris brown choked Rihanna unconscious while hitting, punching, slapping and biting her. She could have died.

auntliddy said...

their mother was some screwed up drunk. Of course kids are messed up, but sad.

I want to be fair to Charlie Sheen. Kelly Preston is on record saying it happened exactly as he said - complete accident. He left the gun in his pants and dropped them on the floor, she picked them up and it went off. Negligent and stupid, but an accident. I can't think of a reason he would have to lie and back him up.

GoGo said...

DAMN! This chick needs to EAT some food! She's looking many years older since she got so skinny!!!

selenakyle said...

Momster-- I think she's got her hair in a fat snake braid (can't remember what they're most commonly called, but it's a weird kind of flat, tiny-stranded braid that I've never mastered myself...) And yes, that does look like a plain black elastic hair thingy down at the end. Kind of downplays the very pretty dress, but hey.

Jill said...

I can think of one celebrity who got jail time for beating up his girlfriend--Tom Sizemore. Just sayin'.

Jason B E said...

Didn't Chris slam her neck and fingers in a car door also? Wasn't she choking on blood at one point? Agreed, she could have died. Unfortunately it doesn't matter to her.

Demi has crazy eyes in that photo.
