Evidence Gulliver’s Open Letter
Gulliver has written an open letter defending his father. He says that he was present during that particular argument.
His mother Donya accused his father of hitting with the telephone in front of their children. But Gulliver says that that incident “did not happen.”
“In the case of my father, there is only innocence. There never has been any guilt. The young man also noted that his father was granted full custody with the divorce, adding, Custody of children is not given to a wife beater, and under most circumstances, hardly ever a man. My having lived, full time with my father should be in itself, proof enough.”
“This lie, all of her lies, things she has been perpetuating and living in as “her truth” —all of this has brought about so much pain and hardship for my father and for all of us.”

He says that his father is a hero for him. In the end, he stated,
“I want only to protect my father’s character, as a person and as an actor. I know he is a wonderfully kind man, gifted beyond belief, a man who wouldn’t trade anything for the love and happiness of his family. This torment should have ended 16 years ago. In such a momentous year for his career, my father should finally be able to enjoy himself. I hope that we can please make that a possibility.”
