The actor joked that he decided he wanted a “Ken Russell kind of lunch,” then paid $ 60 for a woman to give him oral sex in an LA parking lot. The police caught him and then arrested him.
Grant then had to pay a $ 1000 fine and also go through an AIDS education program as punishment for the incident, but it was the public shaming that really caused the most damage. At the time, Grant explained through the New York Times that he had done something “completely insane” the night before.
He went on to write in the statement that he had embarrassed the people he worked with. As most know, Grant and Hurley dated for a little over 10 years, but their romance soon collapsed after he and Divine Brown got caught in the car.
