Kelly LeBrock had dreams of a Hollywood comeback, but those may be on hold after the actress was charged with DUI following an erratic driving incident near Santa Barbara.
The incident happened more than two weeks ago, but somehow the arrest of the Weird Science star managed to stay under the celebrity tabloid radar.
But this week TMZ found a report from the California Highway Patrol that said Kelly LeBrock was arrested on November 30 after she crossed the double yellow line and then failed to stop at a stop sign. She was also speeding, and failed a field sobriety test after the arresting officer noticed signs of alcohol.
The arrest comes as Kelly LeBrock was attempting to make a Hollywood comeback. After spending years hidden inside her Santa Barbara, California, ranch, the actress did a photo shoot on her ranch and opened up about her life in an interview with the Daily Mail.
In the interview, Kelly said her divorce from actor Steven Segal took a toll on her.
“I admit, I became a hermit,” the 53-year-old actress said. “When I split with Steven, the divorce was very ugly, and details of the case were on the evening news. I didn’t want my kids seeing it, so I simply got rid of the TV. I moved my kids out of LA so they could grow up with real people — the kids of gas pump attendants, plumbers, and real family people.
‘I had absolutely no self-esteem. I hated myself. I decided to swap my old life in Beverly Hills for a new one in the country, in Santa Barbara.”
Kelly LeBrock and Stevel Segal were married for nine years and had three children together, but after they split Kelly said she had little to cling to.
“I feared everything and didn’t want to leave the house…Sometimes I sleep three nights in a row outside with no tent, just under the stars. Just me and my horse. It brings me closer to the earth.”
Kelly LeBrock now faces an uncertain legal future. Though she was arrested and booked for the DUI, charges have not yet been filed.
