Kiki's Assistant Claims The Drugs Were Hers

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersKirsten Dunst


And we wonder how much Miz Drunkst paid her to say that?! Hah!

In 2007, both Kirsten Dunst and her assistant's purse were stolen out of their suite at NYC's SoHo Grand Hotel. James Jimenez was convicted of criminal trespassing last year for the crime but the jury could not reach a verdict. He claims he was allowed access to the room because he was accompanying a drug dealer.

So, here we go again! The case is being retried and Kiki's assistant, Liat Baruch, took the stand on Thursday where she admitted there was marijuana in her purse.

"I had a little bit of marijuana in my bag. No one else smoked pot. I was planning on smoking it alone after we wrapped, after work," said Baruch.

Defense attorney Robert Parker asked, "You were going to smoke that with Ms. Dunst, right? Ms. Dunst knew you had the marijuana in your bag, correct?" Baruch replied, "No".

Kiki is taking the stand next week.

    OMG its just pot. GET OVER IT.

    can we not call pot a "drug," please? it gives the wrong impression, that coke and dope are no worse than weed. seriously, its people that put pot on the same level as hard drugs that MAKE it a gateway drug. kids think, "well, i've already smoked weed, so why not do coke?" if they realized what a huge leap that is, how much more harmful drugs are than pot, maybe that progression wouldn't happen. we all have to start living in reality!

    please…give me a break. marijuana? who cares. maybe if it was heroin or PCP.

    they act like it was meth or heroin - it's little bit of pot. if anything, more need to smoke it and relax…….like mario for instance, maybe he'd get off his high horse then……..or maybe he should just go on the horse….would help with that weight problem, can't say the same for that horrible skin problem…….

    You can't be convicted of a crime if a jury can't reach a verdict. Perhaps the guy was indicted and then a mistrial happened. And retrying over pot possession if a stupid waste of taxpayer dollars.

    How does any of that excuse his theft?? The guy steals their purses, and the attorneys want to do is blow smokescreens over dope? Even if he were there with a coke dealer, it still wouldn't have anything to do with him being a thief! LOVE the judicial system.

    Who fucking cares if Kirsten was going to be sparking up with her later on or not? Who cares if the guy was with someones pot dealer? He wasn't invited to the room and he certainly wasn't invited to steal their belongings.
    I'm so sick of lazy people thinking it's okay to steal from celebrities because they have lots of money. A good number of those people have worked hard to make that money, and even more disgusting is that the defense attorney is trying to make the theft okay by insinuating that Kirsten and her assistant are raging drug addicts because her assistant smokes pot. No one cares if they do or not.
    Even if she was high off her butt stealing her stuff is not okay in any way shape or form.
    Thieves and liars are the lowest form of human beings. Instead of talking about how pot is a gateway drug to harder drugs, how about how we talk about how stealing is a gateway crime to harder crimes.

    She looks high in this photo, but pot??? Really?? Who cares???

  15. 15

    WOW this is our legal system right there. A person can be a thief but OH NO getting high off of pot, which is LEGAL IN SOME STATES, is just absolutely awful. Of course punish someone just because they don't have a stick up their butt.

  16. 16

    Oh no, smoking weed its world war 3… shiiiiz

  17. 17

    No dealer who dealt just pot would go through such measures. The assistant is obviously fabricating the story (aka she's lying through her teeth). The lawyer probably came to the conclusion that there was substantial evidence that a drug dealer was in their room, and that some form of drugs was in their possession. A small amount of pot is the least punishable amount of illegal substance, and it is also the least likely to be condemned socially. As Dunst has a reputation to uphold, it was prudent for the assistant to take all the blame (go personal assistants!) as she is probably getting a good raise and more vacay time out of it, and no legal ramifications will come against her most likely… but that's just conjecture.
