The author of the Tony Award Winning Doubt and Oscar Winner For Best Screenplay Moonstruck, John Patrick Shanley, has been handed a five million dollar lawsuit by indie film actress Amanda Jencsik.
The details of the lawsuit filed claim Shanley carried on a violent sexual relationship with Jencsik and choked her to within inches of her life.
Jencsik says Shanley would loop his belt around her neck during sex and place his hands over her mouth which prevented her from breathing.
Jencsik alleges Shanley would ask her if she felt like he was raping her. WTF?!
The actress also claims Shanley forcibly sodomized her and laughed at her when she said she was in pain.
That's soo creepy. We aren't sure if this is true or not but if it was then damn that's just messed up.
