While we were on the set of his (1987) movie Can’t Buy Me, Love, he beat me up because he claimed he ‘wanted to see what it was like to beat up a woman!’ I now suffer from arthritis in my hand from where Respondent injured me.
The physical abuse included Respondent breaking my finger when he rushed me to a van and closed the door on my finger.
