Brooke Shields has issued a statement with regard to her involvement in Kiefer Sutherland's alleged head-butting of Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough at a Met-gala after-party: "While at [the after-party at SubMercer], Brooke was bumped into by Jack McCollough, and Kiefer Sutherland became concerned. Kiefer has always been a gentleman in her company.” Another source says McCollough "may have shoved Kiefer first.” [NYDN]
