Edie Brickell

Yesterday we mentioned the police-involved brawl between longtime lovers Paul Simon and Edie Brickell. Today CNN has an update:

Singer-songwriter Paul Simon said Monday that he and wife Edie Brickell "had an argument" before they were arrested Saturday.

Brickell, in a statement sent to CNN by her lawyer, said she started it.

"I got my feelings hurt and I picked a fight with my husband," Brickell said. "The police called it disorderly. Thank God it's orderly now"

Simon and Brickell were arrested on disorderly conduct charges by police investigating a family dispute at their New Canaan, Connecticut, home Saturday night, according to police. "Investigating officers gathered information and found probable cause to arrest" Simon, 72, and Brickell, 47, a police statement said.

The couple was released from custody Sunday morning.
They held hands when appearing before a judge in the Norwalk Superior Court Monday.

"Edie and I are fine," Simon said. "We're going to see our son's baseball game this afternoon."

Yay!

I hope she goes to prison

Fucking wack job broad

All Paul Simon wanted was a kiss
And she tried to choke him to death
For that horrible song me and Julio

There are tons of hot bitches who would throw themselves at him
in order to get his cash. It's kind of like a reverse Jewboy money grab.

Way to keep the comments classy, BV peeps. Nice going. Wait, did you push 'pause' on the game you were playing? Do I hear mom calling to let you know your lunch is ready? Aww, keep it up kid. Life in the basement in middle America is a great thing. I'm certain of it ... ahem.

Why don't they just say that it was a physical altercation, so it doesn't make it seem like charges were filed because of something silly such as just yelling?
