Gary Busey

Gary Busey is at the center of a new controversy after a woman allegedly complained about the actor's behavior on the set of his new horror movie.

Sources connected with the upcoming movie "Mansion of Blood" tell us, Gary had simply become too difficult to work with -- and was booted from the production after a woman on set complained about inappropriate comments Gary made. 

According to sources, Gary had already finished shooting about half of his scenes -- so the script was rewritten ... and another actor filled in to shoot the rest.

Gary's rep tells us, "The situation was plagued by contractual issues and misunderstandings from the outset. Gary considers this episode concluded and has no further comment on the matter."

We contacted producers ... who DENY Gary was fired ... telling us, "Mr. Busey remains in the cast of the movie" ... and insist Gary has "committed no improper acts in connection with his role in the movie."

people think hes a fruit cake because of his past drug use .. take a look at the near death motorcycle accident he had awhile back .. he wasnt wearing a helmet and sustained a massive head injurie . his behavior is more consistent with closed head trauma then with drug addiction

Never found this guy all that appealing, I'm surprised he's lasted as long as he has. He looks like a donkey, besides he's not that talented!

He shouldn't be labeled like he is. The poor guy can't always help what he does. Hang in there, Gary.

What horse did he murder for the very long upper teeth. Maybe he's compensating for something.

I actual feel bad for the guy . . . after the head injury from the motorcycle crash, he still has to make a living. I really don't think he has a clue how 'out there' his behavior is. But you can tell he is just trying to do whatever he can to make a living.

Whatever is causing his bizarre behavior, he needs to take a time out to see if he can straighten himself out. If the behavior issues are due to his brain trauma, then maybe he needs to retire from show business. He is doing himself a disservice as he's not seen in a sympathetic light. I watched him on Celebrity Apprentice and while at times was funny, is absolutely exhausting to watch.

It is mot uncommon for people with brain injuries to self medicate, trying to find some way to find their way back to feeling normal. Drug use is a symptom of TBI, not the cause of his behavior. That attitude of "he uses his TBI as an excuse" is why there is such a high rate of suicide among TBI survivors. Your Brain controls everything you do, in essence it is you, and when it becomes damaged, you become damaged. It is not something you can just shake off, or just work through.

How many times does he have to hear "its you that is the problem" before he actually believe it IS him and not other people perceiving him wrong?? That brain injury really did mess up his world :(
