Mark Salling Slit His Wrists Before Child Pornography Plea Deal


TMZ reports that Mark Salling, who rose to fame playing Puck on Glee, attempted to commit suicide by cutting his wrists on August 22, 2017.

The prosecution recommended four to seven years in prison under the plea deal.

We're told the "Glee" star was in the bedroom of his L.A. area home on August 22 when he cut both of his wrists. After doing so, he "freaked out" and called for his roommate, who found him bleeding and called 911.

Salling was taken for psychiatric evaluation and was taken to a rehab facility for psychological issues several days later.

Salling, best known for playing Puck in musical TV show Glee, is facing up to seven years in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Colony Capital in talks to buy troubled Weinstein Co
The Weinsteins operated Miramax until September 2005, when they left the company and founded the Weinstein Co. Barely any work is getting done at the company's offices in NY and Los Angeles, sources told CNN.

Shortly after TMZ reported the details of Mark's alleged suicide attempt - including claims that he has opted for long sleeves because he has scars on his wrists - his lawyer spoke out, denying the story (though TMZ reports that they neglected to mention which elements of the story are incorrect).

He was originally arrested in December 2015, after police raided his Sunland, California home and allegedly uncovered and seized "thousands" of lewd images featuring minors.

Salling played bad-boy football player Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the hit U.S. show Glee from 2009 to 2015.

Salling must also register as a sex offender, have no communication with anyone under the age of 18, and stay at least 100 feet away from schools, public parks and swimming pools, playgrounds and video arcades.

The US District Court in Los Angeles heard how he must pay out $50,000 to the child victims abused in the pictures and videos in his evil collection.
