Dicaprio 'Attacker' Accuses Him Of Starting Altercation

The woman accused of slashing LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's face with a glass during a 2005 Hollywood party insists the actor started the altercation by threatening her.
Aretha Wilson allegedly hit the Titanic star during a house party thrown by Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriend, film producer Rick Salomon. DiCaprio was allegedly hospitalised after the attack, which left him needing 17 stitches to close up a large cut across his face.
Wilson, 40, who was previously ordered to stay at least 500 yards (457 metres) away from DiCaprio, is being held on $150,000 (£100,000) bail and was arraigned in a Los Angeles court earlier this month (Aug10).
Speaking in court on Monday (23Aug10) Wilson's lawyer claimed the case is a cover-up and demanded a judge hand over a toxicology report from the night of the attack, and DiCaprio's medical records, reports TMZ.com.
Her legal representative claimed DiCaprio started the altercation by reacting to offensive comments Wilson made about him and his friends.
But DiCaprio's lawyer, Blair Berk, has slammed the allegations, stating, "These are outrageous lies and a classic case of trying to re-victimise a victim in a violent assault. That this woman became a fugitive from justice for five years to avoid responsibility and that Mr. DiCaprio has fully co-operated with the prosecution from day one should say everything.
"This woman has a long criminal history of violent criminal attacks on others and should be given no attention whatsoever. Mr. DiCaprio simply wants justice."
Wilson faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
