Patrick Dempsey's Accused of Beating His ex-wife!

Patrick Dempsey’s first wife accused the “Grey’s Anatomy” star of beating her, according to court papers obtained by the National Enquirer.
Rochelle “Rocky” Parker claimed that Dempsey once broke her finger in a car door and further charged that “while we were on the set of his [1987] movie ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ he beat me up because he wanted to see what it was like to beat a woman,” the tab is reporting.
Dempsey and Parker married in 1987, when he was 21 and she was 47. She filed for divorce in 1991, citing “irreconcilable differences,” reportedly after he told her that he had met another woman. Now, Parker is distancing herself from those accusations. After the Enquirer contacted Dempsey’s rep for comment, Parker released a statement saying that during the messy divorce she had been advised to make those accusations and others — which she now says are false.

Only days earlier, however, Parker reportedly discussed the alleged beating with the Enquirer, which quotes her as saying, “After [the alleged violence on the set of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’] he never beat me up again” and also added that she had forgiven Dempsey because forgiveness is “the only thing that really heals us.”
I really hope this isn't true, I just can't picture Patrick hurting his ex-wife or anyone.

It is hard to imagine a 21 year old marrying a 47 year old but who knows. If he did beat this woman up, hopefully he learned something in his portrayal of Jeremiah the Prophet (which he was excellent in).

It can't be true that a lawyer would tell their client to say the worst possible things about someone just to win would they?
