is speaking out after her son was violently attacked on Wednesday.
In a statement posted to her Instagram account, the 38-year-old admitted that she and her son are both “very shaken up.” Additionally, she thanked her close female friend who came to her son’s defense.
The Hart Of Dixie alum penned:
“Thank you so much to everyone for the outpouring of love we have received since yesterday’s attack. James Knight is very shaken up, as am I. The attack was incredibly violent, and my 4 year old son was obviously the target of the individual’s brutal attack, which is terrifying.”
“I want to believe that we live in a world where human integrity comes before documenting an attack. I’m saddened that the paparazzi chose to terrorize my son and I by shoving cameras in our face during the attack, whilst he was shaking and crying instead of trying to help. My brave friend Judit Balogh used her self-defense training to try and keep the individual from harming James Knight while glass was shattering on him, as the perpetrator jumped on the roof until it collapsed and kicked in windows trying to get to him. He threw a bottle at her, hitting and assaulting her, but he couldn’t catch her. Without her bravery and selflessness, I cannot imagine the outcome. I encourage all women and men to arm themselves with the skill of self-defense training, I promise you will never know when you might need to use it.”
