‘Fighter’ Director in Groping Scandal

This is uncomfortable. David O. Russell’s 19-year-old transsexual nephew, Nicolas Peloquin, has accused the director of groping him while they worked out at the gym. Peloquin has filed a battery complaint against Russell, alleging that the 53-year-old director of The Fighter felt his breasts after they discussed gender-reassignment surgery. Russell confirmed the incident in an interview with police, but insisted that Peloquin was “acting very provocative toward him.” Peloquin is the son of Russell’s adopted sister.
