Nikki Reed in Center of Feud for Incident That Went Down When She Was 16

By  | 

From what we’ve seen, Nikki Reed is a good person. She’s charitable, she’s loving, she’s friendly to animals… She even sat down to have dinner with her husband’s ex-girlfriend — and took selfies with her! — just to clear the air between them, as well as the public. Yet that doesn’t mean she’s out of the woods when it comes to scathing headlines.

As thankful as we are that the Twilight alum and Nina Dobrev buried the hatchet over their so-called feud regarding Ian Somerhalder, the 28-year-old Sleepy Hollow actress is now the center of another celebrity feud — for an incident that went down when she was 16!

Back in 2006, Nikki starred in an indie film opposite Alec Baldwin, called Mini’s First Time. In said movie, the two engage in a stepdaughter-stepfather affair. So, naturally, the pair had to get hot and heavy, despite the fact that she was underage and he was nearly 50 at the time. (He’s now 59.) According to the comedian, though, he was unaware of her young age. “I was forty-seven, and it never occurred to me to ask how old Nikki Reed was,” he wrote. “When I found out, just as we finished, that she was seventeen, I flipped out on the producers, who had told me something different.”

One of the producers on the project, Dana Brunetti, was not having any of it. “if @AlecBaldwin had simply said in his book he didn’t know @NikkiReed_I_Am’s age, I would let it go,” he tweeted. “however to say that when he found out after filming he yelled at the producers (I being 1 on the film) makes it out to seem we did wrong.”

Dana tweeted 11 separate times about the situation (he numbered them, FYI), but we’ll give you the summary he provided: “So to summarize, @AlecBaldwin knew NikkiReed_I_Am was 16 [not 17, like Alec penned], didn’t find out AFTER filming, and did not yell at us.”

Then the real beef started. Here are some of the highlights:

Though Nikki’s Twitter handle was tweeted by both parties multiple times, she has not jumped in on the action as of yet. (And, honestly, she’s probably better off staying out of it.)

Hey, at least Alec & Nikki didn’t date when she was underage — like all these couples:
