Heidi Mount called the cops on her husband Shawn late last week, claiming that she felt threatened by him and that he "had a knife," the New York Post is reporting. The couple is allegedly going through a divorce and negotiating for custody of their four-year-old soon.
Hairstylist Shawn Mount was accused of sexually assaulting a model during the spring 2011 shows at London Fashion Week last September. The charges were subsequently dropped, and Heidi stood by her man throughout--it was just four months ago that Mount told the Post, ”We are still together. Nothing about these false accusations has changed our relationship.”
Now a nasty he said she said is unraveling in the tabloid. Sean told the Post:
"She was trying to set me up. It was just me and my son in the apartment. She made a 911 call, and 10 officers showed up. The officers said Heidi told them there was a disturbance and I had a knife that I was waving around threatening people. She wasn't in the apartment. How could she feel threatened?...She made the call in order to get an order of protection against me, so she could get custody of our son. I believe she did it because I asked her through mediation to take a drug test. I believe she is using cocaine...We have been having problems for a while. I have been asking for a divorce for two years."
Heidi, a Lagerfeld muse and current star of the kaiser's new Diet Coke campaign, responded:
"Shawn said something that made me feel threatened. But I didn't tell the police he had a knife. They asked me if there was anything in the apartment that could be used as a weapon, and I responded. 'He has a pocket knife, and there are kitchen knives on a magnet in the kitchen'...But his claims about me using drugs are completely wrong. I do not use drugs. I work extremely hard, and I am trying to do the right thing for my son. I hope we can reach a peaceful agreement. I never wanted my son to not have his father in his life."
