Jeremy London: ‘I Used Acting to Escape’

The Superficial / July 8, 2010

I don’t know what’s taking the police so long to blow this thing out of the water, but Jeremy London is now giving exclusive interviews where he claims to have used his acting ability to escape his harrowing kidnapping ordeal where he was conveniently forced to do all the drugs he loves while currently being subject to random testings in a custody dispute. People reports:

If I heard someone saying this, I would probably doubt it as well,” London, 37, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview.
But he insists it happened, and shares how he survived. “I was acting my way through the whole thing, telling myself, ‘Just play like you are one of them,’ ” he says.

Jeremy goes on to claim he’s been sober since September, which makes it odd that he just accepted a spot on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab. You know, because he only does drugs at gunpoint. Via RadarOnline: has learned exclusively that London will be checking into the Pasadena Recovery Center on either Sunday or Monday. A source close to London confirms, London’s wife will be taking Jeremy to the center and will visit him periodically. Melissa has been to rehab twice.
The two have a rocky marriage and have lost custody of their 3-year-old son, Lyrik. Jeremy was living in a rented house with Melissa, until recently when he was kicked out by her landlord. has also learned that London will be paid $40,000 for his TV rehab experience.

So let me get this straight, Jeremy London makes up a bullshit story about being forced to do drugs that his entire family has come out to say didn’t happen, and he gets a $40,000 reality deal to most likely have a very special episode where he admits it was a lie then ducks any charges because “Hey, look I’m in rehab!” Wow. We severely underestimated this guy. He’s like goddamn Lex Luthor if Lex Luthor was obsessed with meth instead of killing Superman.
