Busy Philipps Claims James Franco Assaulted Her On The Set Of Freaks & Geeks
Actress Busy Philipps has revealed today some shocking claims about her former Freaks & Geeks co-star James Franco.
In an excerpt released from her upcoming tell-all book This Will Only Hurt A Little, the 39-year-old alleges that Franco assaulted her while they filmed a scene for the hit TV show.
“He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’ And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me,” she wrote.
She also goes on to say that he was a “f–king bully" and claims he was forced by show producers to apologise to her.
This isn't great news for the actor who has pretty much been keeping a low profile since allegations of sexual miscondunct broke last year.
We are thinking of Busy right now and applaud her for speaking out now so hopefully others won't have to go through the same pain.
