The woman who rushed the stage of The Tonight Show to talk to actor Colin Farrell is telling TMZ.com that she’s filing a lawsuit against him, and there’s more to the story than the public knows right now.
According to Dessarae Bradford, she and a private eye from Counter Force PI Services (based in Marina Del Rey, Calif.) served Farrell with court papers on the red carpet of the premiere of Miami Vice, roughly two hours after The Tonight Show altercation took place.
Bradford wants $10 million from Farrell, who she alleges committed numerous crimes against her including stalking, harrassment and slander.
Bradford says the Tonight Show incident was her first attempt at formally serving Farrell with the suit. She also stressed that the actor’s reaction to her at the show is “nothing like Colin Farrell’s PR team is trying to spin it to be.”
“I am not stalking Colin Farrell, I am too self-absorbed to ever stalk anyone,” Bradford said, in what appeared to be an attempt to be convincing.
Farrell filed a request for a restraining order against Bradford shortly after she accosted him.
“I am concerned that her harassing behavior has escalated and may pose an immediate threat to my well-being and the well-being of my family,” said Farrell in documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Bradford is holding a press conference to tell her side of the story Monday afternoon. We will have the latest for you as this develops.
