Nick Nolte & son settle sex lawsuit

07/12/2006 at 08:00 AM ET

Actor Nick Nolte and his 20-year old son, Brawley, recently settled a lawsuit brought by a teenage girl who says she was date-raped at a party hosted by Brawley at his father’s home in 2003. The unnamed teenager and her parents filed the suit because Nick’s home has "a long history of furnishing drugs and/or alcohol to minors," which led to the then-15-year old girl being raped when her drink was spiked with the drug GHB, allegedly by Brawley and his 22-year old friend Nicholas Woodring. Woodring was orignally charged with rape in this incident, but pled no contest in 2004 to having sex with a minor. He received a sentence of six months in prison and was also named in the girl’s suit.

Nick has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, and he pled guilty to driving under the influence of drugs (GHB) in 2002. Brawley Nolte may be remembered by film fans as Mel Gibson’s kidnapped son in the film Ransom.

Lee on

The real question is not whether she was raped or who raped her, what were her parents thinking letting their 15-year-old daughter go to a party at Nick Nolte’s house? Didn’t EVERYONE see that mug shot? Bad parenting also contributed to the situation.

Ann on

Not sure what this is doing on the celebrity baby site?

Stacey on

That’s easy Ann, he’s a celebrity baby that likes to rape women!

Marie on

Lee, that’s exactly what I was thinking. As they claimed in their suit, “a long history of furnishing drugs and/or alcohol to minors”…so what is their kid doing there??

It’s interesting the friend got 6 months in prison and Brawley gets to settle out of court. He should have gone to prison too.

Alisa on

To bad Nick is passing on his sleazy behavior to his boy. I hope the girl is alright.

Anna on

Isn’t it funny, that the parents let their daughter attend that party in the first place? If Nick Nolte had such a bad reputation? I’m really feeling sorry for the girl being raped, but I do think that she should’ve stayed away in the first place.
