Star was filmed rolling around on the floor after motorbike accident
Tara Reid has hit out after a video of her reportedly drunken and falling over in Saint Tropez at the weekend was released online.
The ‘American Pie’ star can be seen looking dishevelLed in a blue dress, with a friend lying on the fall following a stumble into a parked motorbike left her and her friend lying on the ground.
It was a rather undignified affair for the infamous Hollywood wild child who lay flashing her knickers appearing unable to stand next to the bike while her, seemingly intoxicated friend is strewn across the knocked over motorbike they had been pretending to drive when the girls fell.
The two girls are eventually pulled to their feet by passers-by who stop to help. But Reid has hit out over the footage, claiming she was set up by paparazzi and attacked gossip site TMZ who called her a “drunken mess”.
She took to Twitter to defend herself: “Tmz are liars and they (are) always againt (against) me they pushed us down that’s why we fell why don’t u see how we fell? Its (sic) a set up!”
“Look how it is edited they only (showed) u after they knocked us down in front of our own boat its so wrong and I will defend us this time 100 (per cent).
She added: “That’s why I was covering my face I knew I was getting set up so unfair its totally not right and I finally have had it stop picking on me!”
Before the video was posted, the actress appeared to have taken the incident as a joke, she tweeted: “What a night… I never laughed so hard ever ever I wish everyone the fun we had last night.”
X17Online, who originally released the footage refuted the claims on their website. They said: “Our partner agency in France, Spread Pictures, who shot the photos, said in a statement, ‘We weren’t close enough to touch her, unfortunately. We were careful to stand back because Tara on a moped sounded like a bad idea even before she and her friend fell!'”
Reid has been hanging out with her fellow Celebrity Big Brother stars and new BFFs Jedward while in the South of France. The actress has had a well documented battle with alcohol addiction, entering the Promises Treatment Facility in Malibu back in 2009.
