Edward Furlong’s ex-wife has revealed in court documents that the embattled actor exposed his 6-year-old son to cocaine and that he should not be allowed near the child without supervision. Shockingly, not-so-shockingly, Furlong alleged that it’s a fat lie when he appeared in court late last week to challenge a court order that places severe restrictions on his parental and visitation rights. He revealed that his ex-wife “will do or say whatever it takes to alienate me further from my son and destroy my ability to work.” The judge in charge of the protection order refused to listen to Furlong’s victimized claims and indefinitely kept the custody restrictions in place.
In November of this year, Furlong’s ex-wife, Rachel Bella, filed a court order against Furlong after their son tested positive for cocaine. Unfortunately, this isn’t a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence, because not only is Furlong a self-admitted drug user, he has also been on a demonic downward spiral for many years. According to TMZ, “[Furlong] was most recently seen wandering the streets of Skid Row in Downtown L.A.” – an area that is infamous for drug abuse, loitering, homelessness, and other post-Apocalyptic happenings. In October of 2010, after Bella and Furlong’s divorce, she took out a restraining order against him and cited that the actor was suicidal, refused to undergo drug tests, and punched their son in his testicles. She also revealed to the court that he frequently drove past her house and even threatened her with physical abuse by hiring people to beat her with metal chains and baseball bats.
Furlong might have been one of the hottest actors in the 90’s, but his career took a nosedive when fame became too much for the young actor and pushed him into the abyss of drug and alcohol abuse. It’s a case of he said/she said, but we’re inclined to believe Bella’s version of events…
