David O. Russell Fondled His Transgender Niece’s Breasts, Claims It Was Consensual

David O. Russell

Seen here doing a remarkable job pretending Mark Wahlberg‘s lack of prosthetic breasts doesn’t bring him unspeakable sadness, The Fighter director David O. Russell is apparently under investigation for fondling his 19-year-old transgender niece’s breasts even though he claims she told him to which, let’s agree, makes this sound not-at-all fucked-up. TMZ reports:

The Broward County Sheriff’s Dept. has confirmed … Russell has been accused of inappropriately grabbing his niece’s breasts during a workout session at a South Florida hotel gym on Dec. 30.
According to the police report taken 3 days after the incident, Russell’s niece … who was born a man and is currently in the preoperative phase of her transition … told cops the two had been doing abdominal exercises when he asked questions about her transformation.
The niece — who does NOT have a blood relation to Russell — told cops they began to talk about her breasts … and how certain hormones she’s taking have made them larger.
According to the report, the niece claims Russell then “put his hands under [her] top and felt both breasts.”
Cops say the woman said she felt “uncomfortable” … but admitted she “did not ask him to stop at any time.”

On top of allegedly asking him to inspect her breasts, David O. Russell also claims his niece made him “pinky swear” to never tell anyone about the incident and then goes on to make probably the best money quote to come out of an uncle-niece fondling session since Cletus H. Beauregarde noted in July 1987 that his niece’s “bergina done look like a retard possum.”

In the police report, one of the investigators notes, “Russell stated [his niece] is always causing drama since the transgender transformation and has become very provocative and seductive.

“Ever since he – I’m sorry, ‘she.’ – got those things, it’s been nothing but come-on after come-on, so frankly, I feel like I’m the victim here. When your nephew-turned-niece prances around all day going, ‘Oooooooh, my titties are swollen,’ what are you supposed to do? Not fondle them? Get outta here.”

    Let’s see a picture of shim.

    So a dude got some fake titties and is bent out of shape because some other dude felt of them?

    • XFX

      That’s the gist of it, yeah. Big fucking deal, uh?

    • Aurora

      The girl is taking female hormones (oestrogen and/or progesterone), which is basically making her body go through a second puberty, girl style. Meaning her breasts consist of milk glands and fatty tissue, just like any other girl’s.

      Just FYI. :)

    • is your body public property?
      NO one has the right to touch you with out your consent.
      the same applies to the niece.

  4. Richard McBeef

    shit, now i’m all worried that holiday grope fest with my nephiece will come back and bite me on the ass.

  5. Dude of Dudes

    When a grown man cant fondle his fake niece’s fake tits then terrorism has truly won. Great job America.

    • arnieblackblack

      The ‘O’ stands for “oh my god your tits feel good”…perhaps?

      • Schmidtler

        somewhere, Ben Franklin and Jesus are sobbing quietly over the demise of our nation’s values. and probably puking a bit over the thought of fondling a she-man’s fake breasts.

      • arnieblackblack

        Or masturbating vigorously, showing God their “O” face. The “O” stands for “oooooh those are nice TG tittays”

  6. OK, so you have a young person undergoing hormone treatments and adjusting to a new life. You have an older figure in this persons life, also making adjustments to the other persons new lifestyle. They were working out, so one would figure that they were somewhat close.

    This could have been nothing more than a, “What do your new fake sheman boobs feel like?” squeeze. Actually going under the shirt is a little weird, but then again, that whole situation is pretty weird. It said he just felt each boob, it doesn’t say that he fondled them or played with her nipples like one does the joysticks on a dualshock controller.

    Was there a mistaken offer to feel them? We’ve all seen the sitcom moments where a woman with new boobs gives the offer to give them a squeeze. Did she maybe say that they felt great and the thrust her chest at him? That could be mistaken as an offer to give them a feel. She never said to stop, so he may not have known it was unwanted.

    What was their relationship like before the changes? Guys will give each other titty twisters and do all kinds of things that are considered inappropriate with those of the opposite sex.

    Not knowing if this guy has any history of incidents like this, or what exactly transpired during the grab, I’m a little reticent to condemn him for what may just be a very awkward moment between relatives during an awkward stage in one of their lives that the other did not know how to react to.

    Now, if it comes out that he was drooling the entire time, had a raging erection, and was dryhumping the heavy bag directly after doing this, then yes, he’s a dirtbag and I’ll stop going to his movies…

    Born a man? Guess mom had the puss of a circus tent.

  8. Everything about this story confuses me. He, she, boobs, gym…

  9. Brooke

    If my uncle fondled my boobs, he’d have hell to pay. But my uncle has also never known me for most of my life to be another gender… Awkward, but I’m not sure this calls for an investigation. As a side note, I hate when transsexuals get a pair of tits and skank up the place, just as I hate when natural women do it.

  10. whiskeyafternoon

    I mean, really, who hasn’t fondled a transgendered shims fake boobs in the gym before?

  11. Dan

    I am not sure the situation – I would need more information, but I can see where someone would be curious as to how they felt.

  12. It's the kimkim, bitches

    Every woman, whether we were born with a vagina or not, loves having her tits fondled. And every woman who gets implants, loves having her tits fondled by everyone. And extremely hormonal women, including women who are transitioning from male to female, love to start some shit. So it sounds to me like this transition is going swimmingly.

  13. EricLr

    Wow, there are so many weird aspects to that story, I’m not even sure it would qualify as a crime in most states. I’m not even sure if those would qualify as “breasts” in most states.

  14. Mitch

    These stories always annoy me. If you’re born a dude, then you are a dude. If you decide you want to be a chick, you are still a dude but just one with tits. The media loves to immediately start calling trannies “she” just because the dude decides that’s what he is. If I decide that I want to be an airplane, does that make me one?

    This is a bizarre world we live in.

    • That Guy

      ^This. A guy is a guy. If he wants to get tits and wear dresses, he’s just a guy albeit a fucked up one.

    • Hedgehog

      Agreed! The op just makes him a mutilated guy.

      • Schmidtler

        Mitch – you gotta follow that dream, brother! go have your arms and head chopped off, and replaced with wings and a propeller! If you feel like an airplane, go BE AN AIRPLANE!

    • I won’t even try to speak for women, because they’re too fucked in the head to try to explain.

      But any dude who looks at his own penis and thinks “I hate this thing, I want to get it cut off” does not need the services of a plastic surgeon…he needs a fucking psychiatrist. Straight people are not crazy, gay people are not crazy, people who can’t stand their own skin…they are crazy.

      • Sorry, McFeely, but you and Mitch are laboring under the delusion that all it takes for someone to be a dude is a cock and balls. It takes a cock and balls, a clear set of XY chromosomes and lastly, and most importantly, a mindset that wouldn’t ever want to swap them for tits and a vagina – and it’s the last one you can’t ever imagine being without. It’s sort of natural, but you might want to consider that not everyone’s as lucky as you two.

        Nature isn’t always so simple. For instance, it fucks up all the time and produces people of indeterminate gender, who don’t have clear XX or XY chromosomes, so to make pronouncements that “a dude is born a dude” or they “need a fucking psychiatrist” just shows an ignorance of not only biology in general, but human sexuality in particular

        If you both woke up tomorrow with a vagina and tits and there was no getting rid of them, you’d either blow your brains out or sell everything you owned and get a second job to pay for surgery, because you both sure as hell wouldn’t be able to, or even want to, live your lives as women. So push that a bit further and try to wrap your head around the notion that a “dude” could be born with a penis but not the masculine mindset to go with it.

        Damn well said, Justifiable.

    • CranAppleSnapple

      It’s really disheartening that so many men can be such unfeeling jackasses.
      The fact that the individual’s personality and soul is a female, doesn’t seem to matter to you guys. “She was born with a dick, therefore she is just a guy!” It speaks volumes about you, showing that you only see value in the fleshy protuberances that a person may or may not have. You don’t see any value in what their feelings tell them. Proof you are truly guys, I guess. No soul.

      • Thanks, but while I do think women can more easily appreciate what it must be like to have an unwanted, and therefore unappreciated, penis attached to them, I don’t think that generalizing that a lack of empathy, openmindedness, downright ignorance or lack of soul is a “guy” thing is being fair. A lot of guys do get it, and others are stuck under the weight of what could be called the John Wayne Bobbitt Effect. It’s a fear women really don’t have to deal with, and I think when confronted with any variation of it, especially a voluntary one, a lot of guys close their legs and their minds instantly follow suit.

        And, depending on how rigidly people define their own gender and how secure they are with their own sexual identity in particuar, I think it’s hard for some to imagine what it must be like to be born shoehorned into a body that doesn’t match who they are inside. So when it comes to the concept of swapping junk so the exterior matches the interior, they can’t see it from any other view but their own – it wouldn’t ever be something they’d do, so anyone who wants to must be nutso. There are people of both genders that aren’t too introspective and are only comfortable dealing with others on a superficial level – for them, it’s easier to just categorize people on a superficial and external level: a cock = dude, a vag = dudette. Simple. Done. Next?

      • That Guy

        If I woke up tomorrow with a vagina and tits I’d spend all day in front of the mirror fucking myself with coke bottles!

    • Theory, you gotta love it. Sorry to wreck that little fantasy, but that’s a scenario a brain powered by a load of testosterone would come up with – which, remember, you also wouldn’t have. Instead, you’d just have a sexual identity that tells you that you should be a dude with a swingin’ dick, but you’d be stuck in the fully functioning body of a member of Estogen Nation – and that’s not the way their hormones tend to tell them to represent. So unless you happen to enjoy hours of penetration with a coke bottle now, your sexual ID and your body truly wouldn’t match up for a playtime session like that. Your body would NOT be a Wonderland, it’d be more like a 3′ x 3′ cell at Gitmo.

      • eggs

        Eloquent as usual, justifiable. But a small amendment- some men are XX as well. Perfectly possible thanks to a translocation. Not all men are XY. You then have Turner’s Syndrome etc., with the extra sex chromosomes… or even XO, with 1 chromosome- Nature is funny like that.

      • Nice of toy to say, eggs, and thanks for the correction, you’re quite right about XX males. I was trying to generalize about mosaicism and left out de la Chapelle altogether. It’s only as simple as “you have a cock and balls, you’re a guy” for people who have a cock and balls and identify as male and take it all for granted.

        As for the guys who claim they’d get off on themselves if they woke up with a pussy, riiiiight. Notice not a one of them assumes they might wake up with it in full period mode. So unless they’re willing to swear that if they woke up without their legs they’d fondle their own stumps for hours in a similar voyage of discovery, I refuse to believe they’d be so damn sanguine about it.

    • Basically, you’re reducing a human’s identity down to what’s in their pants, her gender is female and her sex is male, that’s it. She is not a boy just because she has a penis, she’s a girl who was born into the wrong sex and is just trying to correct her body so she can live comfortably within it.

  15. tumble weed

    this is part of being a celebrity?

  16. arnieblackblack

    Fuck it. Tits are tits whoever they’re bolted on to. Everyone got a mouth & a asshole too!

  17. adolf hitler

    i believe him. anyone that goes through all that shit to change themselves is always fucked in the head.

  18. Sounds like a great way to meet chicks. “Hi, you don’t know me, but I had to report you to the police for being provocative and seductive. I see your tits need fondling; may I?”

  19. Devilsrain

    Scratches no. 4 off the bucket list

  20. Mike

    Sounds like even though the nephew is now a niece, he’s still a dick.

  21. abrennan.com

    Is it relevant that Russell’s first film was a comedy about mother-son incest? Or that he’s an renowned asshole?

  22. This is one of the creepiest stories I’ve read in a while. The guy is a director, are we to believe he’s never touched breast implants before? Also, even if you were curious, it’s a relative.

  23. Aurora

    I’m sort of sad that people automatically think this girl has breast implants, when the article states she’s undergoing hormone treatment.
    People obviously don’t know much about the subject, so here’s a bit of knowledge for y’all; Transsexuals going through female hormone treatment has their bodies doing the same thing that girls would normally do at about 9 – go through puberty (again, in this case.). Their testosterone levels drop, making it harder to build muscle fibers, eventually causing their muscles to dissipate to give way for a softer, more feminine appearance.
    The body starts storing fatty tissue in a more “feminine pattern”, causing it to form hips, buttocks, thighs and breasts.

    Yes, you heard me – breasts. The body starts growing milk glands and storing fat in the new breasts, growing them naturally. A lot of transsexuals are impatient and has implants, but their breasts can, given enough time (puberty isn’t something that happens over night), grow almost to the last stage in the tanner scale. The results from hormone treatment is better right after or during puberty, and the longer you wait after puberty, the worse they get. Naturally, beginning hormone treatment before a typical male puberty, or delaying it with other drugs until one is old enough to begin treatment, enables a person to get pretty much the same result as natural girls.

    For those who want to read into the subject, this is a nice (but a bit messy) article;

  24. Noctus

    The amount of ignorance towards transgender people here is absolutely insane. I am literally seething reading the majority of these comments. Do some research and come back before sharing with us your ‘opinions’.

    You don’t sexually abuse /anyone/ – not everyone likes having their chest touched. Transgender or not – hell, I fail to see why the fact this girl is transgender is relevant to the fact that this asshole sexually abused someone in his own damn family.
