VIDEO: Randy Quaid: Evi and I 'Cannot Function'
In another bizarre interview, the Oscar nominee says he and his wife need to expose "star whackers" or they'll "be out on the street and we will have nothing to eat."
Randy Quaid continued his bizarre claims on the CBS Early Show Friday morning.
In a live interview with Maggie Rodriguez, Quaid denied missing a court date in Santa Babara, Calif. earlier this week. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Randy's wife, Evi, when she did not show up. He and his wife were due in court after they were picked up by cops in September for squatting in a home there they once owned.
To prove he was legally allowed to be in the Santa Barbara home, Quaid showed a photo of a key in the lock of the home.
Said Randy to CBS, "We're a very close couple and she has an opportunity to appear within the next few days. And we're assessing our options, as far as her appearance. As far as we're concerned, we're going to do everything that - legally -- that we have that protects our interests and our safety and, you know, we defer to our attorneys."
Quaid said again that he fears for the safety of him and his wife.
"I have a fear -- that fear because there, for the last three years and really the last 20 years, there -- I've been racketeered on. My finances have been decimated by a group of people, such as my ex-attorney, my ex-business manager, and an estate planner, specifically. And they have conspired together to -- to co-op my corporations, put in trustees without my knowledge." he said.
When Rodriguez asked if he thought his life was in danger, Randy said, "Well, yes. I mean, they -- not in a -- not in a sense where, you know, they're going to come out and shoot me with a gun or anything like that. But, the way they've -- they've manipulated the system, the court system to have us falsely arrested and to make it impossible for us to operate on a daily basis in the most basic way, I mean, banking, owning a house, renting a house, renting a car, I mean, we cannot function."
"I feel if things keep going the way they are, we will be out -- if things keep going the way they are and we don't do something to expose these people -- my wife and I will be out on the street and have nothing to eat. OK? That's how bad it is," he went on.
Randy continued his claim that he was under attack by "Star Whackers," who he says are responsible for the death of stars like Heath Ledger and David Carradine.
"I can't believe that David would commit suicide," Quaid said. "His wife has recently come out and said she doesn't believe that -- that she believes that he was murdered. Heath was an athlete. He played Australian football. He was robust. It's just -- I've had eight friends of mine who have either died mysteriously or had scandals surrounding them in recent years, and this is what I'm talking about when I [say] star whacking. I mean, it's not killing somebody necessarily; it's just creating a scandal or a mystery around a celebrity that -- that discredits them."
Quaid added: "And Heath -- I think it was possible that he could have taken some tainted prescription drugs, yes."
