Reality star Tila Tequila has gone public – on Twitter, of course – about her night with Shawne Merriman, the San Diego Chargers linebacker she accused of choking her and preventing her from leaving his home.
“I am only 93 pounds and 4 ft 11”” she Tweeted.
“I am allergic to alcohol. It has been publicly known for years. That is how I got the name Tila “Tequila” cuz the irony. I can’t drink.,” was another message.
“I have just gotten back home safely to Los Angeles. Thank you for all your love and prayers, and I appreciate everyone’s support.”
Tequila, best known for her former MTV series A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila and Merriman were seen at a San Diego, CA nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning. They then went to his home in nearby Poway.
As RadarOnline.com reported, the bisexual celeb called 911 at 3:45 AM and claimed Merriman was choking her and preventing her from leaving his house. Cops came and arrested the gridiron star and took Tequila to a hospital where she was checked out and released.
Her Tweets had Tila attempting to get ahead of the curve on what Merriman’s defense would be.
It came in a statement he released to FoxSports.com, and said in part: "At the time I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided. I look forward to clearing my name regarding these false accusations.”
