The woman accused of attacking Leonardo DiCaprio just had her bail jacked up from $60,000 to $150,000 because the judge was afraid she'd flee to Canada ... like she's already done before.

Hey "the truth" you cared enough to post, so whats with the "who cares crap?"

The city is Toronto, Aretha Wilson must have a violent temper as her ex died by either pushed from the balcony or slipped as he was trying to run away from her. She has some serious issues, and as for Leonardo she slashed him with a broken beer bottle, not only it required 17 stiches but it nearly killed him. It was near the his carotid arteries. This is what happens:

The carotid artery supplies the head and neck with oxygenated blood, this artery is a vital artery and if cut the person would bleed out in a short matter of minutes and die. It really depends on how deep the cut is into the artery but, either way, when that artery is cut, that persons life is at great risk and they need to be rushed to the emergency room. Because of the lack of oxygen to the brain, this will cause the person to faint or go into a coma depending on how much blood loss and this could also cause permanent brain damage. For first aid there really isn't much you can do unless you have medical instruments and can clamp the artery shut to stoop the blood loss. If this is a real situation and you are seeking answers from the internet and this person hasn't been seen by an emergency technician then this person is already dead. Clammy skin and shaking are the result of too much blood loss.

I hope she gets convicted for this, it is a serious crime!

Bumb b**ch. Looking sexy as always though, Leo! You're for sure not "douchy" as the moron before said. You're a class act. Maybe they got this confused with the comments for Kanye's ugly ass.
