For example, Ashton Kutcher testified against an alleged serial killer in 2019. The story goes back to 2001, when Kutcher was beginning to emerge as Michael Kelso on the series’ That ’70s Show’. In addition, the actor had participated in ‘Down to You’ with the role of Jim Morrison and in ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’ with the role of the funny Jesse Montgomery.
Before his long relationship with Demi Moore and his fantasy marriage to Mila Kunis, Kutcher scored points for being the best rookie in Hollywood. It was then that the actor met Ashley Ellerin, who was in a completely different phase. The girl was trying to build a career as a dressmaker and worked part-time as stripper to earn extra money. After meeting in 2000, the two young men had made plans together. Kutcher would take Ellerin to the after-party for the Grammys, where the elite of Los Angeles gathered.
When the actor arrived at Ellerin’s house to pick her up, no one came to open the door. Kutcher looked through the window and saw what appeared to be a large red wine stain on the floor. He left assuming that Ellerin had changed her plans, but the reality was much sadder: the young woman had just been murdered.
Michael Gargiulo is known today as the Hollywood Ripper, an alleged serial killer with up to six murders behind him. Gargiulo is charged with the murder of three women and the attempted murder of a fourth.
Of course, Ashton Kutcher is not the first celebrity to take the witness stand. Whether it’s to protect their family, friends, or themselves, many stars have come to court to tell the truth. We talk about cases like Macaulay Culkin, defending Michael Jackson, or Naomi Campbell, testifying in a war crimes trial.
