Former Party of Five star and rehab veteran London, who last week claimed that he had been kidnapped in Palm Springs by three people who forced him to “smoke drugs,” has filmed a videotaped message reasserting that he was forcefully gotten high by what must be the most generous kidnappers ever on record.
As London recalls of his plight,
“First of all, I want to say [the incident] actually did happen. It was one of the worst days of my life. I thought I was going to die. Thank God I made it out alive…I had a gun put to my head I had my family threatened. We’re working closely with the Palm Springs Police Department to get the rest of the guys. There’s one guy in custody. There’s two more out there.”
One of London’s alleged kidnappers, Brandon Adams, is currently in custody and awaiting his jail date.
In the statement, London goes on to lash out at his brother Jason and mother Debbie Nielsen for spreading “outrageous lies” about the alleged kidnapping. (On Monday, London had a cease and desist order issued to his family members, along with Jason’s girlfriend, seeking to bar them from publicly discussing the matter.)
Incredibly, despite the numerous red flags surrounding the alleged kidnapping, Palm Springs Police spokesperson Melissa Desmarais say that authorities have not yet called London’s account into question:
“No, not at this point. Our investigators had enough information to arrest a suspect and the investigation is ongoing.”
