Brandon Adams, the man accused of kidnapping actor Jeremy London and allegedly forcing him to smoke drugs, says he and London went on a consensual alcohol and drug induced “joyride for hours” on the night of June 10 in Palm Springs, California, and that London asked Adams to “score him pills”, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Adams, 26, is currently being held on $500,000 bail in connection with the incident.
In his first jailhouse interview, Adams spoke exclusively to RadarOnline.com through a glass partition, where he revealed what really happened in the hours London says he was taken hostage at gunpoint.
“There was no gun. There was never a pipe,” Adams told RadarOnline.com. “We got drunk and I hooked him up with some Ecstasy and Xanax and we took a joyride and partied for hours.”
London told Palm Springs Police that he was minding his own business on the afternoon of June 10, when three men, including Adams, offered to help him change a flat tire.
Adams told RadarOnline.com that while he did help London and his wife Melissa with their flat, the rest of the troubled actor’s story is completely fabricated.
“Me and my uncle were sitting outside the 7-Eleven trying to get someone to buy us a couple beers,” Adams said. “I didn’t know Jeremy was an actor. He and his wife were hanging outside the 7-Eleven acting really strange. He was pacing and sweating and he looked tweaked out. His wife was acting paranoid too.”
Adams told RadarOnline.com that he asked London’s wife Melissa for a cigarette and when she gave him one, Adams caught Jeremy’s eye.
At that moment, Adams says a police car drove up to the 7-Eleven causing London and Melissa to get skittish.
“When they saw the cops, they ran into the store,” Adam told RadarOnline.com. “After the cops left, they came back out and got into their car. I noticed they had a flat and I thought it was strange that they would drive away like that.”
Eventually, Adams says he and his uncle left the 7-Eleven and started heading towards the bus stop. That’s when Adams says he saw Jeremy and Melissa parked near an alley way in their rented black Ford Focus.
“My uncle and I and another guy went up and asked them if they needed help with the flat,” Adams said. “We helped them change it and asked if they could give us a ride home. And Jeremy said yes.”
Adams continues, “As soon as we got in the car, Jeremy asked us if we could get him five xanax and five oxycontin. Melissa was asking for xanax too. I told him I could hook him up but that I wanted a couple of beers. He agreed.”
London’s wife Melissa told RadarOnline.com that she had ‘a gut feeling’ that something was wrong shortly after meeting Adams and his crew and that she asked Jeremy to take her home.
After London dropped Melissa off, he and Adams went on what Adams calls a “joyride that lasted hours.”
“Jeremy wanted to drink, so we bought beer and some hard alcohol and we got f****d up,” Adams said. “Jeremy was just drinking beer but we were wasted. We went driving around my neighborhood, handing out beer to my friends and random people on the street. We were having a good time.”
After a while, Adams says London’s mood suddenly changed and the actor became erratic and irritated. Adams says London started telling him to get him pills.
“I hadn’t been able to get any xanax or oxycontins up to that point, but I was finally able to get him three ecstasy and three xanax pills. He took all six pills at once. He was out of his mind high,” Adams told RadarOnline.com.
As the night wore on, London and Adams ended up back at Adams ‘ apartment where they hung out with Adams’ wife and six children.
Melissa London told RadarOnline.com that her husband was able to escape after one of the suspects took pity on him and brought him to his sister’s house, ultimately helping him escape.
“That’s so far from the truth,” Adams said. ” I brought him to my home and he met my wife and kids. Then I drove him back to his neighborhood and I dropped him off on the street. He ended up checking into a hotel at 2am and staying there.”
Adams’ confession blows a gaping hole in London’s kidnapping story. He has adamantly stuck to it, even telling RadarOnline.com in an exclusive video interview that he feared he was going to die at the hands of Adams and the two other suspects when they made him smoke illicit drugs.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, both London and Melissa have been to rehab for pill addictions and have lost custody of their 3-year-old son Lyrik as a result. They both must undergo random drug testing as part of their custody battle.
Despite his claims that he was sober at the time of his alleged kidnapping, RadarOnline.com has independently confirmed that the former Party of Five actor has, not only a penchant for xanax, but was witnessed acting “high” on the powerful anti-anxiety medication last Saturday night when cops were called to the Viceroy Hotel where he and Melissa were staying.
A source told RadarOnline.com that London freaked out when his credit card was denied at the front desk and that the actor-who does not have a valid prescription for xanax-proceeded to take a “bottleful” and was drinking alcohol at the hotel bar, to the point where he was “stumbling around, even after the bartender cut him off.”
“He said he was really stressed out and needed a drink,” the witness told RadarOnline.com.
RadarOnline.com also confirmed that police were called to the rental house where Jeremy and Melissa were staying a few days later on Tuesday, after the on-again, off-again couple got into a nasty brawl, causing London to spend the night in the car.
“I have six kids, a wife, and another kid on the way,” Adams, who could face life in prison, told RadarOnline.com at the jail. “I have a lot to lose. He’s not telling the truth about what happened.”
Regarding allegations of London’s drug use, a rep for the actor sent this statement to RadarOnline.com, “Jeremy London has consistently passed all random drug testing administered by the State of California. Enough said!”
