The drama continues to unfold between singer/actress Teyana Taylor and movie director Jean Claude LaMarre. As reported last week, Taylor claimed the director physically attacked her after she insisted on leaving the set of his movie ‘Gang Of Roses 2’ in order to tend to her tooth ache.
Following the incident Taylor told GlobalGrind.com: “At the end of the day you don’t put your hands on any female, it was very unprofessional. That whole environment was very unprofessional, very inappropriate. It was just things that my eyes shouldn’t have seen. For him to put his hands on me was really hurtful. I don’t have a dad, I never had a dad and I ain’t about to have one today. I have never had a man raise his hand at me. It’s very emotional for me, it’s a very sensitive subject and at the end of the day, right is right and wrong is wrong. You never put your hands on a female. Period.”
Taylor went out to threaten with a lawsuit, prompting LaMarre to press charges, insisting he was the victim and only acted out of self-defense.
“Teyana Taylor has a history of violence. And after discussing it with my family, I decided to file the charges. We have statements from over twenty crew members who witnessed her charge and violently attacked me. I was going to leave it all alone because at the end of the day she’s only 20 years old, but the truth is this young lady has a real anger problem that needs to be dealt with. I had no choice but to file charges,” LaMarre told Bossip.
La Marre, who told Taylor “Don’t f**king scream at me b**ch,” stated to TMZ that he was defending himself when the situation became physical.
“That is when she began to kick camera equipment and destroy property on set,” LaMarre adds. “In her fit of rage, she then walked to my car and kicked my vehicle door and dented it. There were tons of eyewitnesses on set.”
