Los Angeles, CA – A judge has banned “actor” Edward Furlong from being alone with his six-year-old son after the boy tested positive for cocaine.
Although it’s not clear how the drugs got into the boy’s system, his ex-wife alleges they got there while he was in Furlong’s custody. On Friday, Furlong argued that his ex, Rachael Bella, is a liar who will do or say anything to keep him away from his son and destroy his (*insert air quotes*) career. The judge sided with Furlong’s ex-wife and ruled that Furlong no longer be allowed with his son without strict supervision.
Furlong’s career started when he 14-years-old, when he starred in TERMINATOR 2 and almost made it unwatchable with the sound on. His career peaked in 1998 when he starred alongside Edward Norton in the superb AMERICAN HISTORY X. Since then, Furlong has starred in a long line of turds, battling drugs and alcohol along the way.
The guy has spent time in rehab, and has a long history of arrests stemming from his drug use andor assaulting his women. Here’s some highlights:
April 24, 2001 - hospitalized for a suspected heroin overdose after being found unconscious in a pool of his own vomit.
September 25, 2001 - arrested twice in the same day for two separate incidents involving driving without a license and DUI.
September 2004 - arrested and charged with public intoxication after he and some friends drunkenly pulled lobsters out of a grocery store’s tank.
July 8, 2009 – Rachael Bella filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
October 2010 - Bella filed a restraining order against Furlong, claiming he threatened to commit suicide, told her he hit their son’s testicles, and threatened to hire people to beat her with baseball bats.
January 11, 2011 – arrested and jailed for violating his probation stemming from the restraining order his estranged wife filed.
October 2011 - told judge he was flat broke when ordered to pay Bella over $15,000 in backdated child support
October 30, 2012 – arrested and charged with domestic violence after a fight with his girlfriend at Los Angeles Airport and got his probation was revoked.
During Friday’s hearing, the judge also expressed concern about Furlong’s poor physical appearance. If you want to check out Furlong before he ends up killing himself, you can see him in THE ZOMBIE KING. It’s a British horror comedy, starring Furlong and the great Corey Feldman. I’m going to watch it only because I’m a glutton for punishment. Besides, watching Corey Feldman play the god of malevolence should be hilarious.
Oh yeah, here’s a fun game I just made up. See which one of these songs you can sit through the longest before punching yourself in the face; Edward Furlong performing Hold On Tight, or Corey Feldman performing Honesty. Personally, I have yet to see then end of Feldman’s video, but I may try again today.Tags: California, Celebrity, Cocaine, Crime, Drugs, Edward Furlong
