Jesse to Mag -- Don't Call Me a Drunk, or Else!

6/26/2007 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

inTouchJesse Metcalfe and his lawyers are raising more than a well-plucked eyebrow over an In Touch article alleging that the star fell off the wagon -- they're threatening to raise legal hell for the mag and its owner.

TMZ has obtained a scathing letter to In Touch and parent Bauer Publishing, penned by powerhouse attorney Marty Singer, in which he calls their piece about Metcalfe in last week's issue "completely false" and "fabricated." The mag reported that Metcalfe, recently out of rehab at Promises, was spotted at a John Mayer concert drinking a "Heineken" and that he was "not sober."

Singer calls the suggestion of Metcalfe's relapse "extremely damaging" and "extremely distressing," and says that the allegations could cost him jobs. So the lawyers are asking for an immediate and "appropriate retraction, correction, and apology," or face "substantial liability."

When contacted by TMZ, In Touch and Bauer Publishing said that it didn't comment on legal matters.

perhaps if mr metcalf were a little more intelligent he would realize that the article simply raises the question as to whether or not he is still sober(a truly legitimate question in hollywood these days)it does not in fact just flat out say that he is a total lush with a washed up career who needs to come out of the closet already!!!!!!!!!!and for this i believe he should be truly grateful hey look at it this way dude when was the last time your picture was in any mag? HUH HUH HUH?????????????????

Jesse Metcalfe is a talented and extremely handsome young actor.
I enjoyed him on the "soap" Passions.
Next we enjoyed him as the young hunk on Desparate Housewives.
We also rented the DVD of his movie "John Tucker Must Die" IT WAS A DELIGHTFUL COMDEY AND JESSE DID A GREAT JOB IN IT.
So give this guy a break, he's paid his dues and deserves a chance to use his talent.
Some people seem more like bloodsuckers than humans thriving on the sorrows of others!
