With the recent popularity of #MeToo movement, a lot of past stories have been recalled to become the part of the propaganda. For a celebrity, becoming involved in a similar dirty experience is an annoying blot on the reputation, even though those might be just rumors. Gary Oldman, the recent winner of the 2018 Oscars, had also become a part of the unfortunate event, being accused of domestic abuse against his ex-wife Donya Fiorentino. However, his son, Gulliver Oldman, is confident while rejecting the unpleasant story.

Apart from the ceremony itself, the event featured another important appearance. The activist actresses, namely Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, and Annabella Sciorra, have reminded about the urgent issue, concerning domestic violence and particularly sexual abuse.

The Academy was well-informed about that and reacted in advance replacing well-reviewed but previously accused Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer for the best supporting role nominee. However, some people claim that Gary should have also been replaced.

Son's defense

Back in 2001, the world was shocked by the announcement of Gary’s ex-wife Donya Fiorentino. The former model stated that she has suffered from domestic violence, accusing Oldman of severe fighting:

As I picked up the phone to call the police, Gary put his hand on my neck and squeezed. I tried to dial 911. Gary grabbed the phone receiver from my hand, and hit me in the face with the telephone receiver three or four times. Both of the children were crying.

The scene sounds horrible, but there is another look at this situation. Gary’s son Gulliver claims that nothing similar has ever happened in their family. He defends his father, naming him the most important person in the entire life:

It has been troubling and painful to see that these false allegations against my father being written about again, especially after this was all settled years ago.

Father-son relationships

The relationships between the father and the son have always deserved particular attention. Being a role model is the dad’s direct responsibility, meaning the influence on the child may be greater than from mother’s side.

However, kids require care and tenderness that they usually receive more from their moms. It is really inspiring that Gulliver supports his father in such complicated times, but it also underlines the unpleasant family situation that might have caused the family to split.
