With speculation growing about his alleged abduction at gunpoint and forced drug use in Palm Springs, Calif., a week and a half ago, Jeremy London wants to set the record straight: It happened, and it was a complete and utter nightmare.
In a statement to Radar Online, the Party of Five star recounts the night: "First of all, I want to say [the incident] actually happened. It was one of the worst days of my life."
"I thought I was going to die. Thank God I made it out alive."
The Jeremy London kidnapping account continues: "I had a gun put to my head. I had my family threatened. We're currently working closely with the Palm Springs Police Department to get the rest of the guys. There's one guy in custody."
"There's two more out there."
Jeremy London says he's lucky to be alive.
A recovering drug addict, London had been embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife Melissa over their son Lyric, 3. But the spouses have apparently reconciled - Melissa was actually with Jeremy in the initial stages of the kidnapping.
London says his mother, his brother Jason and his brother's girlfriend are spreading "outrageous lies" about the incident and added that he has not spoken to them in months, and has sent legal threats to his family to stop talking to the press.Reached for comment Monday, Jason said, "I'm glad my brother’s okay, but I have serious questions about what transpired. His health is our #1 concern."
Asked if there was any reason to doubt London's version of events, Palm Springs Police spokeswoman Melissa Desmarais said: "No, not at this point. Our investigators had enough information to arrest a suspect and the investigation is ongoing."
The suspect, Brandon Adams, has already been charged by officials with kidnapping, robbery, possession of stolen property, vehicle theft and carjacking.
London, 37 opened up earlier this year about his struggle to stay sober and his financial troubles. We wish him the best getting through this ordeal now.
