Following Gary Oldman’s best actor win on Sunday, his ex-wife Donya Fiorentino is publicly condemning the Academy for awarding Oscars to men accused of abuse.
Fiorentino has said Oldman physically abused her when they were married, Jezebel reported Monday. Following the Oscars, she alluded to her own allegations as well as the rape accusations against Kobe Bryant, who won an Oscar for his animated short “Dear Basketball.”
“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?” Fiorentina reportedly said to TMZ.
Fiorentino, who was married to Oldman from 1997 to 2001, alleged during the couple’s divorce proceedings that he had once physically assaulted her with a telephone, according to the New York Daily News.
“As I picked up the phone to call the police, Gary put his hand on my neck and squeezed,” Fiorentino said in court documents. “I backed away, with the phone receiver in my hand. I tried to dial 911. Gary grabbed the phone receiver from my hand, and hit me in the face with the telephone receiver three or four times. Both of the children were crying.”
Oldman, who was awarded full custody of his and Fiorentino’s two children, denies the accusations.
