Nicholson ex-lover facing air rage charge

WINNIPEG (CP) — Movie actor Jack Nicholson's former lover, the mother of his two children, spent several hours in a Winnipeg jail cell this week after being charged in a bizarre air rage incident.

Rebecca Ann Kelly, also known as Rebecca Ann Broussard, was released Wednesday night after posting cash bail of $15,000 (U.S.).

Broussard had been arrested early that day on board an international flight that was forced to make an emergency stopover in Winnipeg. Police say one airline attendant was assaulted by a drunken woman who eventually passed out.

The crew member wasn't injured in the assault, which involved pushing and punching.

Broussard told police she worked as an actress, but didn't tell them about her connection to one of Hollywood's biggest stars. Police say it wouldn't have mattered.

"It doesn't make any difference to us whether she was associated with Jack Nicholson or not," Sergeant Bob Sullivan, head of the Winnipeg police airport patrol, said Thursday.

Broussard, 39, and Nicholson have two children, a 12-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy. They met while Broussard worked as a waitress at Helena's, the Los Angeles restaurant Nicholson owns. The pair are no longer together, following years of an on-again, off-again romance.

Reporters were camped out Thursday at Nicholson's home, next door to Marlon Brando's. Reporters were also sent to Broussard's lavish estate in Santa Monica, where she must reside according to bail conditionsl. She was forced to turn in her passport and is not allowed to fly on any airline.

Broussard has been charged with assault and mischief endangering aircraft. Her case has been remanded until June 26.
