In case you have not seen the movie Gone Girl or read the book, there might be some spoilers in this blind, so, just saying.
Our actress was a victim of domestic violence.
Plain and simple, she was beaten and abused by a celebrity boyfriend. Badly.
The world knows it.
The boyfriend never denied it and has been treated badly since it all came out.
The thing is our actress in other relationships has not been beaten but has told her boyfriends that she will tell the world she was beaten unless they pay her or buy her something. It always happens right before she was going to leave for some other guy, so why not get a bonus on the way out.
Our actress who was A list for the briefest of times does not get much work.
Certainly not as much work as would befit the lifestyle she lives.
She likes to pretend she is all hippie and doesn’t care about money or material things, but she does.
The guys she blackmails also know that she will be believed so they pay up.
She never asks for anything outrageous.
Plus, she already has the next guy on the line so she never ends up spending any of this money or selling the gifts (her house) so she keeps accumulating wealth.
I say all of this when the guy she is dating now splits with her.
He won’t pay up so when that split happens, look for her to say publicly she was beaten and him try to convince everyone she is lying.
Current boyfriend: Neil Young
Beater ex-boyfriend: Jackson Browne
