Today's Blind Items - The Settlement

Was she a big named actress? No, but she never really had a chance to hit it big. She was starting out and she landed a huge part right out of the gate. Not big, but in a very big movie. That is the kind of credit that looks great when you are going into castings. At the time she was beginning her acting career, she also was dating this permanent A list musician/songwriter. Even back then, which is a couple decades ago he was still permanent A list. He has been in and out of the news the past year or so. Our permanent A lister has always had a temper and has always exhibited behavior that is violent when drunk, and specifically towards women. In other words, this is not a guy you want to date or be with. The thing is though, when you are who he is and are in the permanent A list group he was in and out of, women don't see or hear that. They should. It was more difficult to hear about it back then because of a lack of social media and what not. Anyway, our actress was dating him and he had too much to drink at a party. He shouldn't have been walking, let alone driving. Our actress was in the passenger seat when our singer totaled the car. The actress nearly died at the scene and then again at the hospital. She was permanently disfigured from the accident. Our actor never faced any charges. None of this ever made the news. The actress never worked again and, in return for a very very large settlement is not allowed to discuss the events of the night or her relationship with the singer/songwriter/musician. He is also not allowed to discuss it, but I really wish a reporter would at least give it a shot. He ruined the life of someone and has never had to answer for it.

Prince Harry fell out with brother Prince William because he felt he wasnt rolling out the red carpet for Meghan following their engagement!

Sean said...

Billy Joel?

Guesser said...

Ritchie Sambora? He was in and out of Bon Jovi.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Not a lot to go on. A lead vocalist/songwriter in a permanent A list band. Initially, I was thinking Vince Neil, but he caused the death of his best friend Rizzo from Hanoi Rocks! due to a motor crash so you'd think he would have learned his lesson there. The in and out and in thing makes me think it might be a Van Halen guy.

Brayson87 said...

I wonder how many files like this are gathering dust in a law office somewhere.

Guesser said...

Doesn't say lead singer. Ally Sheedy for the actress?

sandybrook said...

Ally still acts her problem is drugs not disfigurement.

LA Native said...

That Vince Neil accident was on my street, about a block away

Herbert Arnold said...

jackson brown?

Moose said...

Jackson Brown was my first guess as well.

Tink said...

David Foster?

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Probably just a typo, but the second time the driver is mentioned, he is referred to as an actor.


@LA Native I remember reading somewhere that they were on their way to a liquor store. *sigh*

sandybrook said...

Jackson Browne really was a solo artist and not a band member for most of his career.

An Edwards said...

Brett Michels if memory serves.

Farmgirl said...

Axl Rose?

Tricia13 said...

It’s the Grunge era so my thought was Anthony Kiedes,butbthe GF doesn’t line up.

Liam Gallagher came to mind as well.

Moose said...

Re-reading it, "permanent A list group he was in and out of" makes this sound more like Neil Young

Krab said...

Neil Young?

MDAnderson said...

Joe Walsh??

LA Native said...

Jackson Browne is a good guess, he has had quite the reputation for being an ass with women way back when. But has he been in the news lately? I could have easily missed it, if he has been.

Janet Carswell said...

Neil Young/Carrie Snodgress

sandybrook said...

This is OT but looking for this person, I checked Sly from Sly and the Family Stone. This motherfucker dated DORIS DAY!! Holy sheet Doris Day..

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Liam Gallagher is an intriguing guess. He was famously "out" of Oasis during their performance on MTV Unplugged, watching from a box seat.

LA Native said...

@Joseph, yes, and the Redondo Food Mart/liquor store is just a couple hundred yards from where it happened. Still is.

Guesser said...

I didn't realize this actress never worked again,so yeah,Ally is wrong.

Lonely Bastard said...

@Tricia.

Liam Gallagher was a notorious douche canoe even in the days before social media. At elast it was well known in the UK.

Krab said...

I don't think Liam was perm A two decades ago. A, sure, and I loved Oasis, but perm A?

LA Native said...

omg @Sandybrook, thats insane!

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Janet Carswell has a pretty damn specific entry. What a sleuth!

PoliticallyIncorrect71 said...

Henley?

Megley said...

@Moose: yep, me too. He wasn't the sweetest bonbon in the box, that's for sure.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Vince Neil's wreck was in 1984, which I think is too long ago for this blind.

Neil Young was with Carrie Snodgress even longer ago than that. Then he married, so he doesn't fit this.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

@Sara, Making It Work

Good point, and it looks like she's worked intermittently in television and film through the early aughts.

Cat said...

Lindsey Buckingham? Can't find a girlfriend that would fit, though.

Tricia13 said...

@Krab I agree and I love them still. There was was meteoric though and could’ve been../
@lonely planet He is indeed. Wrestled my sis from him and his aggressiveness one night after a gig at the after party (I still tell her she owes me,she kind of agrees. Noel is a gent though.

Jimbonius said...

Snodgress worked pretty regularly, probably not her.

Sara, Making It Work said...

The accident never made the news.
The actress landed a big role, but it doesn't say if she got a chance to act it. This is pretty much impossible to figure out.

Tricia13 said...

Meteoric rise *

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

@Tricia

If this turns out to be the sanctimonious AutoTune-eny Kiedis, yikes.

Tricia13 said...

Yeah he’s a hump.
Can’t believe all the woman that dated him(have a gander)

ladybaus said...

Liam Gallagher is not a permanent A list song writer. He never wrote songs for Oasis. So stupid.

sandybrook said...

@LA ikr? Kinda like Gregg Allman and Cher only more screwy.

Sara, Making It Work said...

So if it's Vince, it's a totally different wreck.
Personally, my mind went immediately to Axl Rose (and Erin Everly maybe). Something about the November Rain video giving me creepy vibes.
I don't know of any wreck, although according to the blind, we wouldn't.

Erin & Axl did marry, but they divorced then got back together, then split again after a miscarriage. That's the kind of detail Enty likes to fudge with. She also got a big settlement from him, but it was "because he was abusive". Could have been a wreck too. Maybe that is how she miscarried.

Anyway, the details are vague, but Axl seems like a pretty plausible guess.

gldstwmn said...

Lindsey Buckingham and Cheri Caspari

gldstwmn said...

Sandybrook, Sly Stone dated Doris Day? WTF?

ladybaus said...

Good guess, gldstymm

Cat said...

gldstwmn has cracked it I think

gadfly said...

Yep. gldstwmn for the win. Buckingham fits perfectly, Caspari's first big movie/small part was in Pretty Woman.

loopymommy said...

+1 Good sleuthing.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Yeah, I think gldstwmn's got it. Well done! The blind's title, The Settlement, seems like it could be a hint, too, because it seems like there have been enough blinds about NDA settlements that they usually get a somewhat more descriptive title. The Chain / The Settlement. I don't know. I'm probably just being dumb.

Cat said...

@Joseph - and possibly a link to the Fleetwood Mac lawsuit he filed?

I've had no sympathy for the man this year, not since I read about him letting his wife stand on the side of the stage in 2003/4, holding their newborn baby whilst Stevie Nicks was singing a song most likely about a (their?) past miscarriage. Revolting.

Carrie was not disfigured

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

@Cat That's a pretty diabolical. His wife shares a lot of similarities, appearance-wise with Stevie Nicks, too so, yeah, that's nasty AF.

Great sleuthing guys and gals.

Except u Derek. Fyou.

Jon said...

She got in the car with a drunk person who could barely walk. The blame's not all on him.

Lindy said...

But Cheri’s mentioned in this 1994 article as a producer and the LA times reporter appears to be looking at her, so not sure how disfigured she was. Maybe in terms of starlet, but...

Moedoodle said...

Except no way is Oasis considered “permanent A list” they never made it here in the USA. It’s reaching that say they made a dent.


Axel Rose

I have some inside intelligence from somebody who knows Cheri who wishes to remain anonymous, but you guys from the old Fan Fic list know who it is because this person contacted one or two of you, as well.....this person emailed me and we exchanged some information, because they had seen the discussion we had going on on this board about her.... it's somewhere in the old threads here...

Anyway here's what I am aware of; LB and Cheri were in a car wreck sometime in 95. They were arguing, and LB lost control of the car. Cheri was hurt pretty bad and LB got out with bumps and bruises. There has been some question that alcohol was involved, but that is alleged. Cheri needed some therapy and evidently couldn't even walk for a time following this wreck. During her therapy, before she was recovered, LB wanted out of the relationship for good. He set her up in a new house, paid her medical bills, and basically walked away from her. Since hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, of course she sued him.

The case was settled out of court, but Cheri had to sign a statement agreeing to never divulge any of the particulars about their relationship in exchange for a sum of money.

Jon said...

The only thing on the interweb about a possible LB and Cheri car accident is from April of this year on some random forum. Anybody find any more rumours further back than that?

gldstwmn said...

Cat, wifey was standing on the side of the stage because she got wind that he may have been wandering around a bit too much. Also the baby was sick and should not have been being drug around like that. She was born with a heart condition. Meanwhile wifey spent a good part of that tour buying up antiques and other crap while the crew had to rent an additonal truck to drag it all around in. His long time friend and guitar tech called it quits after that tour.

gldstwmn said...

PapayaSF, it should also be noted he took up with Anne Heche in the middle of this. His song Come was written about her. I definitely wonder who got the better of who in that relationship.

Roger Mortis said...

Liam has definitely written music for Oasis, in fact music comparable to anything the Beatles ever wrote.

At least, according to Liam Gallagher.

gldstwmn said...

Jon, have you ever gotten in a car with someone who has been drinking? It's not like they had Uber back then.

Couch said...

@Janet Carswell got it!!!

Jon said...

Yes, Cheri, I have. And it was a very, very stupid thing to do. Had I been hurt I would have accepted partial responsibility.

Adrastia said...

Axl wasn't in and out of GNR though. All of the other members were. Axl continued on with scabs for years before the partial reunion.

I was gonna say Vince Neil. I consider Motley Crue permanent A list. You can argue all you want about this. But they are infamous and had a ton of well known songs. Let's not dwell on listings too much. Enty's all over the place with that anyway.

But Vince Meal has a bad temper and has been violent in the past with women, has another well known drunken car wreck that killed Razzle from Hanoi Rocks and permanently crippled the passengers in the other car. He's always had a serious alcohol problem. He was also fired from Motley Crue in the early 90s and briefly replaced with John Corabi.

However, he's not really much of a musician/songwriter is he? I know he thinks he is. But Nikki wrote most of the songs even if his bass playing is meh. But that might be neither here nor there. Vince is a co-writer at best. Even on his first solo record, Exposed, he was a co-writer. That record was good and sold very well. His brief departure from the band didn't turn him invisible.

But people will argue about the A list thing and maybe it doesn't match up well because people don't really think of Vince as a songwriter/musician. But other elements are there.

Sara, I don't think they are talking about the crash that killed Razzle. No one else was in the car as far as I know. If Razzle's death was publicized why wouldn't the actress's injuries also be? Seems off to me. If it's Vince then it has to be from another accident.

I'd only go with Axl if the part about being in and out of the band matched up. But it doesn't really work because he continued on with scabs forever. It was Slash and Duff who were out until the reunion. Adler was only allowed to do a few songs on select dates and Izzy isn't involved. Nor is Matt Sorum.

As far as Liam being permanent A, do you get that by proxy if your band is permanent A? A lot of people would consider Oasis Permanent A. I think getting caught up on Enty's rating system is a mistake. Let yourself be a little looser because he's not good with rating consistency at all and many people disagree with who he thinks is A list or permanent.

Moedoodle, I remember Oasis being pretty popular in the US for a few years. Unless you mean by record sales and box scores. But I don't know a lot about how many records and tickets they sold here.

Tricia13 said...

They sold out venues... the gif I referred to above was at the Heathen Chemistry shows circa 2001 and it was pandemonium in a good way.
And The 90s “Whats The Story(Morning Glory)/ BeHere Now

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

If one wanted to define A list, you could do worse than "Familiar to Millions" :)

Guesser said...

The Lindsay Buckingham guess is likely correct,we aren't supposed to know the details,that's the point. As for being disfigured,plastic surgery could have been done over the course of years,and other disabilities improved over time.

supapimp said...

I love Oasis. But I think that I love Pulp even more from the ‘90s britpop

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

For me, Stone Roses can go to the head of the class.

RereLove said...

However Axl has never been out of Guns ‘n Roses. Slash on the other hand..

Tricia13 said...

Tremendous band#Fools Gold#
I also loved The Charlatans /(go by Charlatans UK in the states I believe). Later stuff is pretty amazing but “The Only One That I Know”=classic

T. W. said...

I "feel" this is Axl Rose.

I bet Enty will reveal this blind.

Enty, thank you in advance.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

David Lee Roth was in and out of Van Halen a lot.

Bonby Haud said...

Stephen tyler though

Jack Rabbit said...

Definitely Buckingham and Cheri Caspari. She was with him from 84-92 and then again from 93-94 and then one last time in 95. Meantime, she had the bit part in Pretty Woman and did one appearance in Fresh Prince of Bel Air in 93. Then...NOTHING. Likely the accident was in 95 as there are Fleetwood Mac discussion boards that discuss the accident, that this caused the breakup and she has no acting credits after that last time with him. She is now living in GA and I could find no current pics of her.

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

@Tricia Thanks for the tip on Charlatans UK.I love finding new music from Britpop. I wonder what the Charlatans US sound like? There was another English band of that era I recall having to have made a distinction to appease the American copyright laws: the Beat, aka the English Beat in the US.

p swer said...

Lindsay had nice hair years ago.

Mango said...

I had to google Cheri Gaspari, and she was lovely, but in some of the photos with Lindsay his hair is goofy as hell. He looks like Eraserhead, ffs.

Montana126 said...

Lindsay Buckingham. Singer/songwriter/musician of Fleetwood Mac. Also had/has a solo career. Was well-known as an alcohol abuser/drug user. In certain circles, he was known as having been abusive to his girlfriends. And he's definitely been in the news in the past year with Fleetwood Mac having fired him.

cheesegrater15 said...

Jesus, did Anne Heche fuck everybody in Hollywood?

TruRes said...

Razzle.

TruRes said...

This blind says he's a musician/songwriter, then calls him 'our actor'?

Ps wtf is this "GnR Imagining" I found?!

Not saying it was Slash, just popped up. Never heard of Slash being violent, although a terrible drunk.

Sd Auntie said...

No way @ sandybrook.🤣🤣. He lives in his van in LA...world's oldest drug addict. Loved the family Stone!!

Sd Auntie said...

Wow Tricia!! I'd faint if i was near the Gallagher brothers!! Please write a book someday...

Zeroh Tollrants said...

I see someone has beaten me to it, lol. I came to post Lindsey Buckingham and Cheri Caspari.
Her big breakout role was Pretty Woman.
I remember hearing this story maybe 10-15 yrs ago...

Himmmm said...

When you are famous like myself there are certain expectations. Sometimes you have to discapline your woman, let her know who’s boss.

Bitchysoisse said...

It's not Vince Neil because he's spoken openly in public about killing his friend in the crash in 84 and showed a great deal of remorse for it. The person in the blind has no remorse and has been covering it up for years.

Jennacheryl said...

Nikkei Sixx or crud I forgot already. But yes @cheesegator she did and used Ellen also. I think something is wrong with He he.

Tricia13 said...

No they called themselves the Charlatans UK here ... just The Charlatans overseas....
Good point about the English Beat-loved them as well

gauloise said...

Also Yaz / Yazoo had to change for the USA. Can't believe in this discussion of Britpop no mentions of Blur

Joseph P Blow, Kokomo PD said...

Upstairs at Eric's! OMD also apparently is still rocking. I kind of like their jam, "Dresden". Speaking of the Jam! Lol.

Jesus, did Anne Heche fuck everybody in Hollywood?

Watch the movie Bowfinger. Steve Martin based Heather Graham's character on Heche, and the film makes it pretty clear the answer to your question is: "yes."
