Fiorentino told TMZ,
Congratulations, Gary and congratulations to the Academy for awarding not one but two abusers with Oscars. I thought we had evolved. What happened to the #MeToo movement?
Now, the Darkest Hours star's son, Gulliver Oldman, 20, has released a lengthy statement slamming former model and his mother Donya Fiorentino of false allegations.
The letter by Gulliver was first posted on Gary Oldman fan account which was later proved to be authentic by Focus Feature.
Gulliver said in the statement,
It has been troubling and painful to see these false allegations against my father being written about again, especially after this was all settled years ago. There is good reason that these specific articles and accusations subsided years ago.
I can see how coming out with a statement to combat an allegation must look. However, I was there at the time of the ‘incident,’ so I’d like to make this radiantly clear: it didn’t happen. Anyone who says it did is lying
Goldman added referencing that his father was granted full custody of him and his younger brother, Charlie,
Custody of children is not given to a wife beater, and under most circumstances, hardly ever a man. My having lived, full time with my father should be in itself, proof enough.
In early February, the former model Donya Fiorentino told Daily Mail that her four-year-long marriage to Oldman was a total ''nightmare'' where she also claimed Oldman beat her with a telephone after an argument in front of their sons in 2001.
