Beverly Hills Nannies star Ariane Bellamar says she’s lucky to be alive after she was allegedly attacked by her date to the Sundance Film Festival.
Ariane, who attended the festival with Entropic Communications CEO Patrick Henry, says that her techie date turned violent when he became jealous of other men paying attention to her.
“The second night, he started doing shots… and became very jealous of the attention his friends were paying me,” Ariane tells RadarOnline.com. “I told him I wanted to leave [but] he did not. I took a cab back to the cabin, inadvertently locked the door behind me and went to bed.”
When she awoke, Patrick was reportedly livid about being locked out and the situation quickly became violent.
“I was woken up by Patrick dragging me by the hair and throwing me into the garage. He was screaming at me, accusing me of deliberately locking him out of the house,” says Ariane.
“He then proceeded to throw me multiple times into the concrete walls of the garage,” she alleged. “I am bloodied and bruised all up and down my left side of my body and… right side. It was terrifying.”
After the police arrived on the scene, Ariane was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with “stress reaction to recent assault,” in addition to “multiple strain, contusions and abrasions.”
Patrick has not publicly responded to the allegations, although following the event, he threatened: “Keep in mind that if you publicly disparage me, I will reveal the facts of the situation in defense of myself.”
