Defendant in DiCaprio Case

Claims Cover-Up

8/23/2010 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman accused of slashing Leo DiCaprio's face with a drinking glass was in court this morning lashing out at the actor, claiming he started the physical altercation and the whole thing is a cover-up.

082310_leo_getty_tmzAretha Wilson's lawyer asked the judge for a toxicology report on the actor the night of the incident, as well as his medical records. 

The lawyer claims the case is a cover-up -- that Leo didn't even report the incident for 3 days, and the 5 witnesses are telling inconsistent stories.

In addition to the toxicology report (Leo went to the hospital that night for stitches and doctors may have done a toxicology), the lawyer wants Leo's rap sheet.

As for what started the fight at the home of Rick Salomon, Paris Hilton's sex tape partner, Wilson's lawyer says his client said to Leo, "You guys are a bunch of f*gs.  Why don't you go butt f**k each other."  The lawyer says that set Leo off and he approached Wilson in a threatening way.

Leo's lawyer, Blair Berk, says, "These are outrageous lies and a classic case of trying to re-victimize a victim in a violent assault."

Berk adds, "That this woman became a fugitive from justice for 5 years to avoid responsibility and that Mr. DiCaprio has fully cooperated with the prosecution from day 1 should say everything.  This woman has a long criminal history of violent criminal attacks on others and should be given no attention whatsoever."

Berk's bottom line -- "Mr. DiCaprio simply wants justice."

Yeah, people run away for 5 years because they are so innocent. What a liar and whack-job. Looks like it is not the first time she has slashed someone, because they slashed her back.

Freaks!    

Was it some sort of social experiment or equal opportunity thing to put this 'woman' in the same vicinity as Leo? Talk about when worlds collide!

What I would LOVE to know is; how does a woman like this get the privilege of hanging at the same place as Leo?

That bar in front of her face in the pic, I wish there were hundred of them ... her face isn't suitable for viewing with human eyes.

The Judge    

I have always wondered why Mr. DiCaprio seemed to avoid the spotlight and value his privacy so much at a young age. I think it may be because some psycho-hose beast slashed open his face at a party. The fact that she and her lawyer are able to bad-mouth the victim in this case shows you what a total ****ing travesty our legal system is.
It makes me feel quite a bit better though that she is most likely as stupid as she is ugly...

I find it weird that he doesn't have a scar or a mark from this incident, yet she has a scar on her face!
