This is horrifying! Australian actress Melissa George was sent to the hospital by police after her partner of four years Jean-David Blanc allegedly abused her, leaving her face swollen and bruised. We have all of the devastating details, right here.
Our stomachs are churning from this disgusting story. Australian actress Melissa George, 40, was allegedly forced to call the police on Sept. 7 after her partner Jean-David Blanc beat her, as French website PurePeople reports. The couple has been together for four years, and have two young children together. Melissa was taken to the hospital due to bruising and swelling of her face, where she was reportedly hit by Jean-David.
The site reports that the Grey’s Anatomy star was suffering from “pain and dizziness,” after the reported attack, which is when she was taken to Cochin Hospital in Paris. So far there are no reports that Jean-David has been arrested or charged for the attack. The Frenchman is an entrepreneur, businessman, producer, and writer.
This is certainly not the first instance of domestic abuse in Hollywood. Recently, actress Amber Heard came forward with a lawsuit against husband Johnny Depp after making shocking claims of abuse that included him throwing a phone at her, swinging around a big wine bottle, and calling her names. After much speculation about whether or not she was telling the truth (as is often unfairly question of abuse victims), a video surfaced showing a shocking episode of Johnny’s drunkenness and violence as he smashed his kitchen. So scary! We hope that Melissa stays safe and gets the protection she needs from Jean-David, if the reports sadly turn out to be true.
