That glamorous couple’s trip to Hawaii that Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry took with Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers resulted in more than just a quartet of sunburnt assholes. It was on that trip, which took place back in May of this year, that Miles made good on his reputation of having one of the most punchable faces in Hollywood by allegedly getting punched in the face in the bathroom at Monkeypod Kitchen in Maui. Miles claimed he had been jumped by two strangers “trying to gang fight” him in the bathroom, but there were also reports that the attack was motivated by $60,000 that the alleged assailant claimed was owed to his wife for helping to plan Miles and Keleigh’s 2019 wedding. Now, we’re one step closer to learning the truth. According to TMZ, only one man, Russell Nielsen, has been charged with the assault. And Russell’s wife Lorrie Nielsen owns a wedding planning company called Unveiled Hawaii, which Keleigh name-checked in the Vogue coverage of their wedding.
According to TMZ:
Miles Teller may see some justice after all — the guy who allegedly clocked him in a bathroom has officially been charged with assault.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Russell Nielsen got hit with one count of 3rd-degree assault in the County of Maui. Prosecutors say he intentionally, knowingly or recklessly caused bodily injury to Miles.
TMZ adds that Russell and Lorrie are both well-known local brawlers and that Lorrie herself had been arrested just weeks before the assault on Miles for “criminal trespass in the second degree” after getting into it in the parking lot at a wedding she was working at the Four Seasons Lanai. Nothing says romance quite like a bouquet of Forget Me Nots and Fisticuffs.
TMZ has obtained video of an enraged Lorrie Nielson outside the Four Seasons Lanai. We’re told the trouble started inside the venue, at a wedding Nielson worked on, before spilling out to the parking lot, and that’s where our video picks up.
A wedding guest films as she comes at him, witnesses hold her back and you hear Lorrie yell “Russell, get him!” to her husband … the same man who allegedly punched Teller in the face inside a Maui restaurant last week.
Russell appears to be the peacekeeper this time, telling the man behind the camera to stop escalating the situation with Lorrie.
Cops came to the scene, and drove Lorrie away in the back of a police SUV. You hear officers ask the man behind the camera to keep his distance from Lorrie’s husband, Russell, for the rest of the night.
Why do I get the feeling that Lorrie was the other “guy” who allegedly jumped Miles in the bathroom but he’s too embarrassed to admit he got clocked by a woman who says “by gosh” unironically. I mean, who won’t even cop to being (allegedly) unvaccinated like his friend Aaron!
