Can we all just agree that Kirsten Dunst does, or has at one point, dabbled with a little doobie? And that even if she does, or has been in possession of a little pot, that the Hollywood starlet is going to have a team around her wiling to take the fall? And that even if she was caught red-handed with it, that she'd suffer nothing more than a slap on her dainty wrist?
It's day one million (whatever, it's been three years) of the ongoing trials and retrials of James Jimenez, who was accused of being in cahoots with Jarrod Beinerman in stealing a Balenciaga bag and some other belongings from Dunst's SoHo Grand Hotel suite when she was just about to wrap on filming How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. So far, Beinerman (allegedly a known drug dealer) was sentenced to 4 years behind bars, and Jimenez has claimed that he had no idea theft was involved in their visit to the penthouse—he says he was following Beinerman, who was the on-location drug dealer for Dunst & Co. If his story is true, then they were invited guests into the highly guarded room.
Enter Simon Pegg (pictured), Dunst's co-star in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. The Post reports that yesterday he testified as a witness (his "electronics" were also stolen from the suite, which was acting as a green room during the shoot). He said the duo were "absolutely not" invited guests, and that "we figured that the floor was secure because of the rigmarole it had taken to get up there." This is the third testimony from someone on Team Dunst attempting to refute Jimenez's claims. Last week when pot was found in the stolen Balenciaga bag, Dunst's assistant took the heat, and the starlet herself claimed she does not smoke the stuff.
Jimenez should be finding out his fate soon; he turned down a plea deal for two years in prison, and currently faces up to 15 years behind bars if convicted.
