Owen Pushed to Edge by Close Pal?

8/28/2007 9:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Owen Wilson may have lost it over the weekend after a "vicious quarrel" with a close friend -- though there's no word on who that friend might be.

The otherwise affable Owen, reports the New York Post, went off the deep end Sunday just after noon, and just after a "vicious quarrel with an unidentified friend." He was discovered at home by a "stunned family member," says the Post. Neither authorities nor reps would confirm reports that Wilson had attempted suicide.

As TMZ showed you yesterday, Wilson was visited by brother Andrew and actor pal Samuel L. Jackson.

Brit, LiLo, Paris Diss Teen "Award"


The unholy trinity of celebdom -- Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton -- was all set to get an award at the "Teen Choice Awards" on FOX Sunday night, but, according to Page Six, none of the girls dared to show up.

"There was originally going to be a 'Newsmakers of the Year' award" nominating the celebuwrecks for their jail-riding, head-shaving, rehab-hopping ways, says an insider. "[But] all the publicists went crazy on FOX, and they just scrapped the category." Their competition for the Newsmaker of the Year? Larry Birkhead and Sanjaya Malakar. Britney, of course, made her not-so-triumphant return to the world at last year's "Teen Awards," where she introduced her then-husband Kevin Federline's also not-so-triumphant rap debut.

who fuggin cares    

i do know owen personally and he has been successful in wrestling with some very tough demons to get where he is. i now pray that he will be okay and that, for once, people actually respect his desire for privacy until he gets it all sorted. if you want an unpleasant result, keep nosing around and throwing cameras in his face. for once, a celebrity isn't courting your attention.

#5 And you don't know him personally. The guy played women, but I guess that 's alright with you. No, I don't know Owen nor have I ever met him just like you but I have a right to my own opinion just like you. Too bad he tryed to take him own life, but sometimes the way we live is the problem in our life!!!

And to all you people supporting #5's censorship, you should consider what America stands for--freedom of speech. This is a blog, you have no right telling others how to think or feel. And you contribute to the media frenzy by commenting at all.

#5 and his/her supporters: Get real! Anything is fair game in the media. That's nothing new either.

I feel for Owen and I can honestly say I've been there, but to think the media won't be all over something like this is just naive. I do hope they give him a bit of space though. It just doesn't seem right to hound him and his family at a time like this.
