OMG! Ugly Betty Actor Stabs Mother With A Sword!

| Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad


This is just…horrifying.

A young actor, Michael Brea, who can be seen in Ugly Betty and Step Up 3D, fatally stabbed his own mother early this morning with a Freemason ceremonial sword!

The bizarre and frightening incident happened early this morning in Brooklyn, NY. Neighbors of Michael's mother heard her screaming in horror, while Michael yelled out to religious figures, like Moses and the "architect of the universe." It took police almost 45 minutes to finally get into the apartment, but once they had, they found the poor woman with multiple stab wounds in her bedroom.

Michael was promptly arrested, but then taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation. Police are still investigating the situation.

How awful! He's going to have to live with some unspeakable guilt for the rest of his life. So tragic.

UPDATE: OMG! Now sources are claiming that Michael "sliced his mother's head off" with his samurai sword. As in, he actually DECAPITATED her!

We're told police arrived to the "bloody scene" and were forced to taser Michael in order to subdue him.

This is just awful! We can't even imagine the torture this woman had to go through! Heart-breaking!

    It doesn't sound like he is all there. I think he had some sort of psychotic break.

  3. 3

    religion causes billions more murders than Marilyn Manson and Eminem's music combined…

  4. 4

    His eyebrows are fucked up.

  5. 5

    yeah, so mario - you should probably wait to get a whole story before publicly posting assumptions and accusations about such a horrid situation.

  7. 7

    Sounds like all kinds of satanism.

  8. 8

    nice commentary, Perez.

  9. 9

    I hope he gets the help he needs. Mentally stable people don't do things like that.

  10. 10

    Masons are evil

  11. 11

    If this samurai is so famous then why is the only picture that pops up is the same one from this story on google? none of him on Ugly Betty

  12. 12

    … he must have mental issues. that poor mother :|

    Who'd he play in Ugly Betty? IMDB doesn't even have a page for him. Sounds like he's not an "Ugly Betty" actor so much as he's "some guy who might have been an extra in Ugly Betty and killed his mother".

  15. 15

    No… someone killing somebody else with religious connotations? Shocking… never happened before.

  16. 16

    Can we all agree now that it's time to quit believing in imaginary friends?? and that if someone thinks their imaginary friend is talking to them or listening to them, they are fucking NUTS and need to be put in a psych ward?

  17. 17

    Re: Douche Hunter – He only appeared in one episode of Ugly Betty and was a dancer in Step Up 3D. He was probably an extra.

  18. 18

    this dude is just plum crazy.. bet he'll get off with a plea of temporary insanity or mentall instabiliy.. truly sad.

  19. 19

    1. This dude is hardly an "Ugly Betty actor" — he's not even on imdb.

    2. Obvious psychotic break. For the sake of society (and his surviving family), hopefully they'll get him on (and to stay on) an appropriate meds regimen and, if not, won't let him out from whatever psych facility is in his future.

  20. 20

    Illuminati! I'm guessing he was listening to Lady GaGa during that "ritual"

  21. 21

    Re: KDIZZLL – satanism? are you high?

  22. 22

    people this has NOTHING to do with religion. It sounds most likely a break from reality. Doctors will decide if he is even competent to go through the legal process. Based on what this article says- which really isnt much and with no real sources, it sounds like a psychotic episode. And they will have to find out if he has the mental abilities to understand what happened and what happens next. And anyone who decries the use of NGRI should know that around 1% of defendants even use NGRI and less than that are found NGRI

  23. 23

    Re: MsJules – you should know that those who are found NGRI are not getting away with anything. It is not like they get to go home. they are sent to a state run hospital for AN INDETERMINATE amount of time where they are generally separated from the rest of the hospital population. State run hospitals are no paradise, by the way. Also, the use of NGRI should know that around 1% of defendants even use NGRI and less than that are found NGRI

  24. 24

    Well, he looks gay and we all know being gay is a mental illness, so that explains this situation.

    Now that I've pissed Perez off - on a serious note - this is extremely sad and disturbing. Something must be SERIOUSLY wrong with him. Even if he had an abusive childhood and snapped on his mother, actually decapitating someone is extreme. Sad. :-(

  25. 25

    wow. how sad.

  26. 26

    Terrible! I don't know how I'd be able to live with myself if I murdered someone - let alone my own mother!!!! This guy must have some SERIOUS issues. He needs some help.

  27. 27

    Evil!!!!!!!!!!! He's going straight to hell.

  28. 28

    Re: lizzmoran – Thanks for the insight Liz!!! Always nice to see the truth shed on it.. I dont know much about the area.. I just hate how it seems like people get off on the insanity thing.. but then again maybe just law and order makes it seem that way.

  29. 29

    i dont remember him from UB or SU3.
    anyways…thats just freakin crazy.

  30. 30

    After reading this I legit felt sick to my stomach. I hope his mom Rests in Peace!

  31. 31

    sounds like schizophrenia to me.

  32. 32


  33. 33

    Re: mattvoyager – then he used the samurai sword to craft and sculpt his eye brows! FLAWLESS…

  34. CHYA says – reply to this


    That's some seriously crazy Freemason shiz! People, stay away from that. The guy didn't just lose it… He was actually sacrificing his own mother for a Freemasonic ritual. It just gives me the chills. So young… What a waste!

  35. 35

    @ gorgeous_chik7 do u kno how stupid and ignorant u just sounded for making that remark about Well, he looks gay and we all know being gay is a mental illness, so that explains this situation….. being gay is not a choice its not a disease ppl are born this why ok..why would ppl want to make their lives alot harder if it was a choice??? reguardless if its a joke its was rly ignorant of u…. u dont kno if this kid is gay why just bcuz he has better eyebrows than u makes him gay?? no not even this is a tragic thing who knows what this kid was thinking in this whole situation it had to be a mental episode

    Re: lizzmoran – religion IS a break from reality.

    This was a satanic attack. He is a satanist. You'll noticed he used a Freemason sword, and decapitation has to do with Scottish rights burial ceremony…among some sects of Freemasons. "The Archetect of The Universe" is also a Freemason term…to describe our God, or perhaps, their god, Lucifer. Trust me, this was some kind of a pre-calculated blood ritual sacrifice.

  38. 38

    Re: jhaines2 – "Religion" didn't cause this. He obviously has some sort of psychotic disorder.

  39. 39

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Sorry to break it to you but about 99.9% of the world is religious. It isn't a "break from reality" it's a cultural belief system that we have because we are conscious beings with more developed social patterns than other animals. You can choose not to be religious and that is perfectly ok, but there is no basis in saying that it is abnormal to be religious.

  40. 40

    Did he live with his mother? NORMAN BATES from 'Psycho' comes to mind. How creepy!

  41. 41

    Re: Zip
    technically if you are talking about freemasonry it's not Satanism it's Mithraism. They do not worship SATAN…they believe in Mithra or Lucifer ( who is not the devil we connect him to in modern times, but rather an angelic being referred to as the bringer of Light). Freemasonry has not been religiously centred for centuries, and many people of all religions are infact freemasons ( my Catholic granddad was a freemason for crikes sake)…It's a glorified boy's club. They sit around and talk about how business is going and wether they think the economy is going to bounce back… and even (shhh…this parts super secret) the weather.

  42. 42

    That's horrifying. I hope she can rest in peace because that is ust a horrifying way to go. At her own son's hand no less. :(

  43. 43

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – If it is such a sad situation why did you begin your comment blasting everyone in the world that is gay, saying obviously they have a mental illness? Have a little compassion for the family of this woman and leave that shit out of a post like this!

  44. 44

    Re: MsJules – Do you know how often people plead insanity? Now do you know how many people who plead not guilty by reason of mental defect actually win?

    The insanity plea is only used in 1% of all criminal cases. That's right, 1%. Of those 1% of cases, only 26% are actually successful. TV makes it seem like every other trial has someone pleading mental disease or defect, but its crap and just makes for good ratings.

    Those that are found to be mentally diseased have to then go to mental institutions. They don't just get off and get released into the general population. Its too dangerous.

  45. 45

    The man suffers from schizophrenia.

  46. 46

    I am interested to hear his side of the story. I suspect he was having drug-induced psychosis. I feel sorry for his poor mother, his family member and this guy. Imagine snapping out of whatever kind of fit you're having and realizing you killed your own mom. Sounds like an awful nightmare!

  47. 47

    Some journo brought in the Masonic sword idea, it was a frigging Samurai sword which is Japanese! it has nothing to do with freemasons.
    Like George Washington, Ronald Reagan, Buzz Aldrin, Benjamin Franklin and others, I am proud to be a freemason.
    A basic requirement of membership is that you believe in a"Supreme Being", this allows people of all beliefs to come together and enjoy one anothers' company. So Christians can dine with Jews, Muslims, Sikhs Buddhists etc. The use of the term "Great Architect of the Universe" avoids conflict over the name of the "Supreme Being". Political and Religious discussion is not allowed at Lodge meetings.

    OMG! That's horrible!

    Re: LovesGaga86 – I agree! Some people are just assholes!

    Sounds like he had a psychosis.

    Re: critique_fame – she didnt say it was abnormal she said basicallu said that its not REAL
    wow just because a lot of people believe something doesnt mean its real, true, or good…tyranny of the majority is a dangerous thing

  52. 52

    Re: critique_fame – 99.9%?!? Where on earth did you get that figure? 1.1 billion people in the world are atheist, agnostic or not religious.

  53. 53

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – with a screen name like your's, you are delusional.

  54. 54

    OMG! Maybe Michael saw Verner Herzog's new movie "My Son My Son What Have Ye Done". The similarities are crazy!!!
