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."

All I can say to this one is the lady is entitled to her day in court. And she is entitled to a lawyer who will dig like a pit bull to uncover the facts. If Leo's behavior is beyond reproach, he has nothing to be concerned about. He is not above due process.
