Oooo Alec Baldwin! Sounds like the fire inside you is BLAZING yet again!
Following news of his wife's lawsuit with a yoga student, a New York Post reporter and photographer caught up with him on the street to ask him about it.
Alec, who was reportedly already pissed at the Post for publishing the suit story WITHOUT his wife's side, allegedly grabbed the reporter's arm and angrily said, "I want to choke you to death."
He then allegedly called her photographer partner a "coon" and a crackhead! And this particular bit of the story has been extremely worrisome as the pap was African American, and coon is a racial slur.
But Alec responds to the photog accusations by saying:
"[The report of the slur] is one of the most outrageous things I've heard in my life."
Outrageous is right!
In addition, one source very close to Baldwin says he didn't threaten the reporter; he just merely said, "I hope you choke to death."
Oh. MUCH better!
But the reporter, Tara Palmeri, has already gone to the cops with audio evidence of the alleged threat. So we'll see how this one pans out!
Both Tara and Alec have filed harassment claims in the incident. And as you well know, this isn't the first time Alec has found himself in a sticky situation with those working for celebrity journalism!
His alleged punching fit back in the summer eventually resulted in 0 charges, but it stained his rep pretty nasty-like.
So stay tuned! This sudsy soap opera is sure to continue!
