Chase's ex-paramours hospitalized after airport scuffle
All parties insist incident was 'prank gone wrong'
Two men formerly linked with "actress" Cordelia Chase, the current wife of hearththrob Orlando Bloom, find themselves in New York City hospital beds after, apparently, injuring each other. Police insist that the incident involving communications entrepeneur Todd Campbell and Harry Osborn, the even wealthier heir of the Oscorp fortune, was an "unfortunate prank" but "grounds for no criminal charges."
Eyewitnesses report that Osborn approached Campbell, at which time Campbell hit Osborn with a large golf club. A third party, identified as Oscorp Employee Phillip Santini, then discharged a weapon, apparently in Campbell's direction. Injuries to the knees of both parties are reported. However, spokesmen for Campbell and Osborn alike insisted that the incident was staged as a rehearsal for the "Rich Boys Gone Wild" episode of MTV's Punk'd. Asked if this explained Campbell's earlier alleged assault on Osborn, at a New York night club, both parties refused to comment, with Campbell's spokesman adding, "I don't know what you're talking about, that never happened."
Osborn and Campbell actually seem to have more things in common than otherwise. Besides their former associations with Ms. Chase, both lost fathers in tragic circumstances, and -- some have speculated -- may be attempting to compensate for this emotional void by living extravagant lifestyles and dating long strings of women.
Campbell, however, was believed to be on the road to a quieter life, with his engagement to nightclub proprieter Paige Halliburton. Reached for comment, Ms. Honeywell -- who seems intent on going through with the wedding scheduled for December 21st at Fenway Park -- stated that she was "not familiar" with the nature of Campbell's "personal relationship" with Osborn. Furthermore, Halliwell seemed remarkably unconcerned regarding her fiance's welfare casually stating that she would "go and see if he's okay."
So far, no charges have been filed regarding the incident.
*OOC -- Cards, flowers, and condolences for Todd during his recovery period are of course welcome.
