Les Miserables star Russell Crowe was snapped hanging out with his two boys Tennyson, 6, and Charlie, 8, as the trio played in a park in Sydney, Australia on Saturday (February 2).
It seems officials at a venue in Sydney have launched an investigation into allegations that Russell was involved in some drama after the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards on January 30th.
A Sydney actor named Alex Haddad – who has who has appeared on SBS series Pizza and reportedly paid $300 for a ticket to the after-party for the AACTA Awards at Sydney’s Star Casino – has threatened to sue after he was kicked out because he asked Russell for a photo, he claims.
Alex told the Daily Telegraph that he saw Russell at the Marquee nightclub at the casino and asked for a photograph.
“(He) rudely declined (the picture) and started to get abusive… I wasn’t drinking… I wasn’t fighting, and I definitely wasn’t harassing Russell. Security told me Russell had asked for me to be removed.”
A spokesman for The Gladiator actor has denied that the Oscar winner ordered Alex’s removal from the nightclub.
A representative for the casino has confirmed they will be looking at CCTV footage from the club to determine what happened.
“We are investigating the matter,” they say.
Russel has since addressed the allegations in a series of posts on Twitter, criticizing editors of the newspaper for publishing the story.
“You know the old saying…? If you can’t say anything positive, don’t say anything at all… f**k me, that’s a hard ask… In Australia, we don’t have privacy laws… we do however have laws that preclude you from publicly humiliating an individual… Lawyers? Researchers? Comb through 25 years of BS (bulls**t), print anything s**t by the Telegraph 2 (sic) prove they don’t do news but they do humiliation?” he writes.View Slideshow »»
