So everyone who believed Jeremy London was really kidnapped and forced to do drugs at gun point last summer raise your hand.
No takers? Well, it turns out that the former “Party of Five”/”7th Heaven” co-star may just have been the victim of the unlikeliest crime in the world after all. One of his suspected kidnappers, 27-year-old Brandon Ray Adams, pleaded guilty late last week to felony false imprisonment and unlawfully taking the actor’s rented Ford Focus.
London, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and starred on the latest season of VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab” had a hard time winning believers in June 2010 when, London said, several men kidnapped him and drove around for 12 hours making him take ecstasy and methamphetamines. Even London’s mother and twin brother publicly aired their doubts about the veracity of his claims, telling People magazine they had serious doubts about his story.
“I feel vindicated,” London told People on Monday. “But I’m hardly jumping for joy. The damage that has been done to my career, reputation and family is almost irreparable.”
