In August, Southern Charm star J.D. Madison was accused of sexual assault. The details of the allegations are … heinous.
Another man was implicated, and it is that man’s actions that are bringing this case back into the spotlight.
He is now accused of having shown up at the victim’s house and threatening her.
J.D. Madison is accused of having drugged a woman and of having raped her once she lost consciousness.
According to FITSNews, another man implicated in the assault, chiropractor Jay Schwartz, showed up at the unnamed victim’s home.
“I’ve been trying to contact you,” he reported told her while standing at her doorway.
He then apparently said: “I want to talk to you about what happened that night.”
Instead of leaving when he realized that he was unwelcome, he apparently told her that he “has the messages from that night.”
To make matters worse, when the woman tried to close her door, Jay allegedly placed his hand between the door and frame, propping the door open.
It is at this point that he allegedly repeated what he had told her.
Once he had finally departed, the woman contacted police — which is absolutely the right thing to do under those circumstances.
Police then went to Schwartz’s home and asked him about the encounter.
He reportedly agreed with the woman’s “assessment of their conversation.”
Police then returned to her home where they gave her a copy of the No Trespassing order that had been issued to Schwartz.
Truth be told, an instruction to not trespass on someone’s property is a very mild response, considering the circumstances.
A man implicated in the drugging and sexual assault of a woman then showing up at that woman’s home and preventing her from closing her door?
That sounds like a terrifying ordeal.
It also sounds like a court could interpret it as witness tampering or witness intimidation.
Southern Charm fans cannot help of being reminded that J.D. Madison’s good buddy Thomas Ravenel was recently arrested.
Ravenel was arrested for assault and battery, and those who have connected the dots believe that the charges stem from the allegations by Nanny Dawn.
She is one of two women who have accused Ravenel of sexual assault.
Others have accused him of alarming behavior, saying that he seems like a perfect gentleman … right up until he becomes someone else altogether.
Thomas Ravenel will not be returning to Southern Charm for Season 6.
J.D. Madison was never a star of Southern Charm in the way that Ravenel was.
Instead, Madison had a recurring role — but that role was ongoing for the first five seasons of the series.
Some are asking if reality television in particular has a problem — if there is something about the genre that makes bad men gravitate towards it.
We understand the arguments, but we are not so sure.
Maybe, as more men are coming to realize, there are just a lot of terrible, predatory men out there. Not most men, but too many.
Perhaps some of them being reality stars is just a statistical inevitability.
See, fans think that, because Demi was partying after celebrating Dani’s birthday, that Dani and other friends are somehow to blame for her relapse and overdose.
Dani has finally broken her silence and is imploring Demi’s fans to stop sending death threats to the ones who love Demi the most.
Demi Lovato’s guitarist thinks that Demi’s friends are to blame for her relapse and overdose. Dani Vitale says that no, they all love and care about Demi.
“I care about Demi just like all of you do,” Dani writes on Instagram.
It’s worth noting that she turned off comments on the post. We can only imagine the sort of vitriol that she might otherwise receive under her words.
“I have not said anything about this situation until now,” Dani acknowledges.
Just because you don’t write about it on social media doesn’t mean that you don’t care. Obviously.
Dani explains that her silence is “because her recovery has been of the most importance.”
“I was not with Demi when the incident happened,” Dani clarifies.
She shouldn’t have to defend herself, of course, but perhaps that explanation will put people’s minds at ease.
“I am with her now,” Dani writes. “And will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you.”
Danie emphasizes: “There is no need for any negativity towards the ones who care about Demi at this time.”
“There is too much of it in this world as it is,” she explains. She’s right about that.
Dani’s heart goes out to Demi’s fans, many of whom are young and have never dealt with such a sudden health crisis in a pop star.
“I know you’re all feeling lost without her at this moment in time,” Dani writes.
“Remember,” Dani implores them. “That you have always been a community of Lovatics who LOVE.”
Sometimes, a lot of people forget right and wrong when they’re looking at a screen instead of a person’s face.
Writing a message on social media is not the same as screaming into a void.
Dani asks: “Please remember that when you take out your phones and start typing.”
That’s good advice for anyone, not just for Lovatics.
“Remember that we all love her more than we can ever put into words,” Dani reminds the world.
“Please,” Dani concludes. “Continue to send her love during her recovery.”
The sad truth of the matter is that there are cases in which friends are at least partly to blame for an overdose.
Factors like peer pressure aside, if someone provides the wrong dosage or the wrong drug, or if they simply fail to check on a person, that person has not been a good friend and may even bear some responsibility for an overdose.
When people who know very few of the facts of an overdose decide that they know exactly what happened, that’s a problem.
To make matters worse, well, they really should not be sending death threats. To anyone. They should not be bombarding Demi’s loved ones with hate now or at any other time.
And, again, Dani literally wasn’t even there for the overdose.
It’s been three days since Demi Lovato suffered an overdose that nearly claimed her life.
Friends, family, and fans of the singer are still reeling from the news, and unfortunately, some have chosen to lash out in destructive ways.
Earlier this week, Lovato’s guitarist, Mike Manning, blamed her friends for the overdose and threatened to “expose them” as addicts.
To be clear, it’s understandable to feel a confusing mix of emotions at a time like this, but unless it turns out those friends held her down and stuck a needle in her arm, it is 100 percent not okay to blame or shame Demi’s fellow users.
If this situation has taught us anything, it’s that addiction doesn’t discriminate, and the addict begging for change on the street deserves to be treated with the same dignity as a multi-platinum recording artist.
Manning hasn’t launched his horrendously ill-conceived campaign yet, but the misdirected outrage from fans who are desperate for someone to blame has already begun, and predictably, it’s made an awful situation considerably worse.
In the hours before her hospitalization, Demi was spotted doing shots at an LA bar.
Sources say she and several friends were celebrating the birthday of Dani Vitale, Demi’s longtime friend and backup dancer.
Little is known about what took place in the hours after the group left the bar, but since Demi was last seen celebrating Dani’s birthday, several foolish fans have decided to exacerbate whatever guilt of grief she might already be feeling by harassing Vitale online.
Insiders claim Vitale has been receiving non-stop hate messages and death threats.
This, despite the fact that she Dani is a teetotaler who has reportedly been a much-needed source of strength for Demi in the dark days following her overdose.
“Dani spent the whole day at the hospital with her,” a source close to Vitale told Radar. “Dani and Demi have known each other for a long time, and are very close.
“She’s very upset about it,” the insider added.
“She is very straight; she doesn’t do drugs.”
Despite the fact that Dani has apparently devoted herself to ensuring that Demi receives the best care and treatment possible, hundreds of fans (many of them tagging the vigilante Manning, of course) have spent their weeks hurling non-stop vitriol at Vitale.
“Fake friend…. f-ck you bitch is toxic,” one such psycho wrote today.
“I’m about to beat this bitch up,” reads another comment on Vitale’s Instagram page.
“Ima brake ur legs if i see you,” a third Demi obsessive commented.
Guys, we don’t know Demi personally, so we hate to speak on her behalf, but we’re pretty sure she’d agree that there are better ways to spend your time and express your concerns than issuing physical threats to her best friend.
