Michael Bay Calls Pistol-Whipping Allegations 'Bullsh*t'
Not only that, according to a new open letter on Bay's blog, but the filmmaker doesn't even have bodyguards to go on the clubbin', drinkin', pistol-whippin' romp alleged yesterday by a pair of plaintiffs n L.A. This is all so much "bullsh*t," Bay writes -- and he has the alibi to prove it.
TMZ first reported the lawsuit Tuesday, noting that plaintiffs Joshua Stewart and Paul Klimczak claim they "got into a scuffle with a man they claim is Bay's private security guard" on Aug. 24, 2008. (How's that for minding the statute of limitations?) The three were tossed out of Kiss Nightclub, at which time the alleged guard -- who had been drinking -- is accused of having smacked the boys in the face with his gun. Both say they were knocked unconscious, followed by treatment for "broken teeth, broken bones, facial contusions and other injuries" while the "guard" left the scene.
Well, I finished shooting on TF3 for the day today and come to read utter bullsh*t on TMZ.
I guess the guys suing me today read the Forbes Magazine issue about my paychecks. They claim that I had some drunk security guards packin' heat and they pistol whipped some guys out cold. Sounds like a fun character for a movie but unfortunately I don't live that large. I've never had a security guard in my entire life, nor have heard or ever been to a club called 'Kiss.'
And the date they allege--August 24 , 2008--I was in another state shooting my movie. So where does that leave their silly lawyers?
And come to think of it, why would anyone have drunk security guards in LA watchin' over when I'm off in some lonely desert staying at the Best Western??
Funny how knuckleheads like this make sh*t up.
P.S. While I'm not making fun of someone getting hurt, they certainly should of done some serious recon about these thugs before they wasted the $335 to file a claim in Superior court.
Aww. It couldn't have been that lonely: We've all heard the legend of the girls, the Best Western and the stolen laptop. In any case, let this be a lesson to anyone thinking they can shake Michael Bay down with bogus assault charges: The guy doesn't have a bodyguard! You're just going to have to get him to pistol-whip you himself.
