Lie #5: The Missing Hann-Basquiat Sibling

Last week, I posted a series of six stories, five of which are fabrications, or, at least, not completely true in one way or the other — and ONE story is absolutely true.

Over the next few days I will reveal the truth about the lies.

Today I reveal the last lie, and if you’ve been following along, then you know that tomorrow I will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the remaining tale.

Lie #1: Helena Hann-Basquiat and the Tattoo of Parental Perturbation

Lie #2: Helena Hann-Basquiat’s Brush With Fame

Lie #3: Helena Hann-Basquiat and the Cast of Kick Ass

Lie #4: The Countess is Tyler Durden

Lie #5: The Missing Hann-Basquiat Sibling

I have a brother that I never talk about — he’s in prison in Indiana on multiple charges, including home invasion, assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder. Basically, he broke into someone’s house to rob them, discovered they were home, and attacked them, stabbing one of them so badly that he nearly died. When he was arrested, he used the Rob Ford defense that he was really high at the time.

Poor Beaker

The truth is, this is a true story (well, it’s actually Illinois, not Indiana, but…) but it’s not my story to tell. This is the story of a friend of mine, whose brother has now been in prison for just over a decade.

Tomorrow I tell you how close I once came to being arrested for prostitution one Hallowe’en not that long ago.
