According to a police report, The Fighter director David O. Russell was NOT behaving appropriately with his pre-op transgender relative Nicholas Peloquin last week.
As it goes, David was working out at a Florida hotel gym with his mother's 19-year-old adopted brother, when he offered to help Nicholas "with ab exercises."
While doing so, David's hand was reportedly above Nicholas' "private parts," and from there his hands moved under Nicholas' top and he "felt both breasts."
Following the incident, Nicholas admitted to police that he didn't tell David to stop…but he felt uncomfortable.
As for David, he claimed his mother's adopted brother was "acting very provocative towards him," and he claimed the "had asked Peloquin several times if he was uncomfortable and he did not ask him to not touch him."
Do us a favor, and STOP sexually harassing your relatives, David! Just because he's transgender, that does NOT give U an excuse to feel him up out of curiosity! Ugh.
