Fergie responds to reports that Quentin Tarantino bit her while filming 'Grindhouse'

Fergie responds to reports that Quentin Tarantino bit her while filming 'Grindhouse'

Fergie's claims were rediscovered just days after Uma Thurman told the New York Times that Tarantino forced her into a "Kill Bill" stunt auto crash that left her in a neck brace and with damaged knees.

The stunt expert said that if he and his crew were involved in that day's filming, there's no way Thurman - who suffered a concussion and knee injuries in the resultant crash - would have been involved in the hazardous sequence.

"For this I hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein exclusively responsible".

Thurman first divulged details of the crash in a New York Times piece on Saturday. But I was scared. "So we're doing the scene, right?"

"But that was a deathbox that I was in. It was a sand road and it was not a straight road". "The vehicle could easily have rolled over [or] the camera could have flown forward".

After being behind the wheel for little more than 10 seconds the auto can be seen sliding all over the place before smashing into the tree.

She claimed Tarantino forced her to do a stunt that she had asked not to do, citing safety fears - and that her fears had come true when she crashed the vehicle into a palm tree. "That was a deathbox", she told Maureen Dowd for a New York Times story published on February 3 that kicked off a round of speculation about the incident.

Virginia Tech's offense is led by senior guard Justin Bibbs, who averages 13.8 points per game and is 40.2% from three-point land. The Hokies used a 17-0 run and never looked back in the first half as they shot 57.1 percent and knocked down eight 3-pointers.

In a new chapter of the #TimesUp movement, some allegations have been coming out against revered "Pulp Fiction" director Quentin Tarantino, but they're not of a sexual nature. "She showed up, in a good mood".

The vehicle Thurman was driving has also been scrutinized, as she described it as "a deathbox" with a 'seat wasn't screwed down properly'. She wrote: "How many images of women in media do we celebrate that showcase abuse?" "A serial rapist and a near murderer".

The video resurfaced this week following a February 3 New York Times op-ed in which Uma Thurman accused Tarantino of mistreating her on set, leading people to wonder if Fergie experienced the same mistreatment.

The 42-year-old singer told "Entertainment Tonight" that the old interview was being taken out of context.

Lawrence Bender expressed regret about the Uma Thurman "Kill Bill" vehicle crash, but denied trying to hide the incident.

Representatives for Thurman, Tarantino, Weinstein, and SAG-AFTRA did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.
