Lisa Robin Kelly of "That '70s Show" fame has addressed her recent domestic violence-related arrest, saying she "did nothing to hurt" the man involved.
Los Angeles authorities detained the 42-year-old actress on suspicion of spousal assault on Saturday and held her in custody for several hours before she was released on a $50,000 bond. She has not yet been charged by prosecutors. The man she is accused of assaulting lived with her near Los Angeles and has not commented about the incident.
Kelly said said in a recent message on her Facebook page that she "did nothing to hurt" him and posted a photo of a middle-aged man lying in bed with a cigarette in his mouth.
"I cared," she said. "I made a mistake to move with someone I didn't know well and it's all a big mess. I was simply trying to move on. He has me on a 50,000 bail which I paid, and my account is wiped out."
The actress' rep confirmed the authenticity of the Facebook account to OnTheRedCarpet.com and offered no further comment. TMZ on Wednesday quoted Kelly as saying she and her roommate were involved in a physical confrontation a day before the arrest and that he later told police she had attacked him, which she denies, adding: "I could never hurt him."
Last week, the actress said on her Twitter page: "I'm having trouble with an ex. stalking and lying to ruin my integrity. I'm shutting down the page til it calms down. Love you all."
The current nature of her relationship with Michas is unclear.
"He promised no strings attached when we moved in and that he would be good to me-no matter what," Kelly said in her message. "I just am so upset. My career is doing well and he made sure to ruin it."
Kelly played Laurie Forman, brother of Topher Grace's character, on "That '70s Show" between 1998 and 2003. She was then replaced by actress Christina Moore on the series, which launched cast members Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher to international fame. Kelly's final on-screen acting role was in a 2005 short called "The Food Chain: A Hollywood Scarytale."
In 2010, Kelly was arrested for drunken driving in Mecklenburg, North Carolina and pleaded guilty. She was sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation in North Carolina.
Kelly is meanwhile trying to move on and is concentrating on reviving her entertainment career.
"Doing great and looking forward to shooting new project!" she Tweeted on Tuesday. "Im relieved the nightmare is over and better things on the way!"
The stars of "That '70s Show" are set to reunite at the FOX network's "25th Anniversary Special", which airs on April 22. A rep for the network had no immediate comment about whether Kelly will join fellow former cast members Kunis, Kutcher, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama on the program. It will also feature reunions of casts of "Married With Children, "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "The X-Files."
