Ashley Greene denies that a crack pipe was found in her apt after a fire

71st Venice International Film Festival - 'Burying The Ex' Premiere
About a year and a half ago, Twilight actress’ Ashley Greene’s apartment caught on fire, destroying her unit and taking the life of one of her dogs. Ashley, her brother, then-boyfriend and two fox terrier dogs were there, with only one of the dogs able to escape. According to TMZ’s reports, Ashley’s boyfriend was not Ryan Phillippe, although she was spotted on a date with Phillippe right around that time. I think if Ryan Phillippe was at Ashley’s apartment during the fire, we would have heard about it. The fire was blamed on a candle that was left burning.

Now Ashley is being sued by the building manager for damages, who gave a sworn statement that a crack pipe was found after the fire. Only he never saw the crack pipe, he just heard about it. The statement also claims that the manager saw Ryan Phillippe after the fire.

Ashley Greene’s apartment that burned to a crisp last year had one remnant … a crack pipe, according to a sworn statement by the building manager.

TMZ broke the story … Ashley, her boyfriend and her brother were all sleeping in the unit when a fire broke out after a burning candle ignited some nearby fabric. All 3 fled, but one of her dogs died.

The fire did extensive damage to a number of units and a number of tenants/owners are suing the “Twilight” star.

The manager, Adrian Mayorga, is also suing, claiming he suffered permanent respiratory damage. According to his sworn deposition — obtained by TMZ — Mayorga says one of the men who cleared out the unit after the fire told him he found a glass crack pipe.

Mayorga said, he was the first person in the hallway after the blaze broke out and says he saw Ashley and the others “disoriented … they looked like they were drunk or under the influence of something.”

Mayorga also says in the depo … “The only people I saw getting treated was Ashley Greene, her brother Joe Green, and her — the current boyfriend, Ryan Phillippe.”

Ryan Phillippe has issued a sworn statement in response that claims he wasn’t at the apartment during the fire and that he’s never been in Green’s apartment. Also, a “source” has told US Magazine that this is all hearsay and that there was no crack pipe found. “There was no crack pipe found in Ashley’s apartment. It’s all hearsay from unnamed sources — Mayorga’s claiming he heard from a friend of an unidentified worker who may have entered the apartment. Additionally, Phillippe went on the record saying he wasn’t there.” I believe that Phillippe wasn’t there, and I think the crack pipe detail is just a rumor, but it’s somewhat funny to me that US Magazine quotes an unnamed source to refute an unnamed source. As for whether Ashley and her guests looked drunk… as TMZ notes they just escaped from a fire. Smoke inhalation can do that to people.

Ashley is also being sued by several other residents of her apartment building for damages. You would think that if someone found a crack pipe that they would be all over that.

    It was probably a glass pot pipe, if anything.

  2. Ollyholly says:

    She definitely looks like she does crack.

    • Jay says:

      How do you figure?

      • Lori says:

        Probably because she has gotten so skinny in the last couple of years.

      • Liv says:

        There was a blind from Lainey that Michael Bay made an actress lose weight to get a role – which he never wanted to give her anyway. I always thought it was about her.

      • Jay says:

        She’s also very muscular and fit, which doesn’t scream crackhead to me at all.

      • starrywonder says:

        @Liv I think it was eventually confirmed. He told her she was fat, etc. etc. and she was looking haggard for a while there. I feel for her since I know she is probably wondering why she doesn’t have as big a career as Kristen Stewart and Anna Kendrick.

    • mimif says:

      Please tell me you’re joking, because I’m laughing. Ever hang out with someone who hits the pipe on a regular basis? Cuz I’ve never seen a base head that looks like Ashley. Ever.

      • FLORC says:

        I have. It’s amazing how well it can be hidden. This person did it occasionally though. She could likely do it. She wouldn’t be the 1st actor to use that drug and hide it well enough.
        Just like over weight people use cocain often. You would expect them to be thinner.

  3. Abbott says:

    Dude is inventing the crack pipe rumor to swindle cash out of her so he will shut up.

    Case solved!

  4. Tig says:

    If the sworn statement is the person saying someone else told him they maybe saw a glass something that may be a crack pipe- give me a break. Can’t figure out tossing out Ryan P’s name, esp if he wasn’t there.

    • Frida_K says:

      Hearsay won’t go far if it gets to the deposition stage. That will get shut down by someone’s lawyer during discovery unless I am mistaken.

      • Tig says:

        I had assumed the sworn statement was during a deposition- that’s pretty much answerquestions as asked. You’re right in that such a hearsay statement would be excluded at trial if it ever came to that.

  5. Louise177 says:

    The manager is obviously making this up. If there was a crack pipe, the police or fire dept would have found it. It’s ridiculous to believe that professionals would miss such important evidence. Also claiming they were drunk/high, they were in a fire and waking up. Of course they would be out of it.

  6. Rhiley says:

    I don’t believe there was a crack pipe found, but to some extent, I wonder if it really matters because this is going to be a huge mess.She does seem guilty of causing the fire, and she is tremendously lucky there were no deaths because she could be facing serious jail time. Crazy and extremely stressful. I hope she has a job waiting tables cause girl is going to need to work the rest of her life, and I don’t think her acting career is going to pay the bills.

  7. Nerdmomma says:

    Doesn’t anyone in this situation have insurance?

    • Courtney says:

      That’s what I was thinking! It seems the fire was accidental, this is what you have insurance for.

    • Eleonor says:

      I was going to write the same question.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Me, too. Wouldn’t it cover damage to other apartments as well as hers?

    • Size Does Matter says:

      If they did have insurance, the other residents’ carriers can pay their claims and then file suit against Ashley seeking to be reimbursed by her (or her insurance carrier) because the fire was her fault. It’s called subrogation.

      For some reason I read the headline as “Ashley Green denies having apple pie in apartment.” I was like, what’s the BFD? Pie haters.

  8. Jess says:

    Like the fire department missed a crack pipe and just said screw it we’ll say it was a candle on the couch? Right. Sounds like this guy is looking for cash. If the other tenants suffered more physical damage than the people right near the fire that sounds like their smoke detectors didn’t go off in time allowing them to get out, that’s on the landlord as well, plus no one else was seen being treated. This story makes no sense.

  9. maleficent says:

    so the girl who was dating ryan phillepe burned down her apt w/ a candle / crack pipe
    and rp baby mama alexis knapp burned down her apt a few months back w/ a candle
    does rp get them hooked on crack or look for hollywood tarts already gone??

  10. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Poor dog.

  11. wow says:

    She is so pretty to me.

  12. idsmith says:

    She has beautiful hair. Sad about the dog dying. This story sounds like bulls*&t to me.
