LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - 40 year-old ex-model Aretha Wilson has been sentenced to two years in prison after attacking mega-movie star Leonardo Dicaprio at a Hollywood party in 2005.
Wilson's attack was so severe, the Inception star needed emergency surgery to the gashes, including 17 stitches to his face and ear. Wilson told police she had mistaken Dicaprio for a former boyfriend whom she believed had been bad-mouthing her.
Wilson fled to Canada after the attack in 2005, but she will get a shorter sentence after agreeing to admit to the charges under a plea deal. She is also likely to receive credit for the 330 days she has already spent in jail while waiting to be extradited from Canada to the US.
Wilson will be sentenced later this month.
