LATEST: Troubled actress Natasha Lyonne's father has rubbished reports his daughter is "homeless" - insisting she is wealthy and living very comfortably.
Aaron Braunstein has spoken out on behalf of the troubled AMERICAN PIE star, who is currently facing a string of police charges, including criminal mischief, harassment and trespassing.
He tells the New York Post, "Everyone keeps saying 'Poor Natasha, she's homeless,' but she's very wealthy. I live in a huge penthouse with nine bedrooms on the Upper West Side; her grandparents are very wealthy in Beverly Hills."
And he claims Lyonne refuses to be tried over her alleged threat to sexually molest a former neighbour's dog because "nothing happened".
Lyonne failed to appear in court last month (27JAN06). The absence marks the fourth time Lyonne has missed a court date and the third time a bench warrant has been issued for her arrest.
