Cormac McCarthy's Ex-Wife Arrested After Pulling Gun Out of Vagina During Argument About Aliens
In The Counselor, a film with a screenplay by No Country For Old Men and The Road author Cormac McCarthy, a character, Malkina (played by Cameron Diaz), has sex with a car. No, not metaphorically, I mean she literally has sex with a car.
Well, you know what they say. Sometimes life imitates art.
Jennifer McCarthy (not that one), the ex-wife of the Pulitzer prize winner, was arrested last Saturday after she pulled a gun out of her vagina and threatened her boyfriend with it when a sex act/argument about the existence of aliens they were having took a turn for the weird.
According to the arrest records, McCarthy and an unnamed boyfriend spent their Saturday morning arguing about aliens, as you do. Once things got heated, McCarthy left the house they shared, only to return and immediately go into the bathroom. McCarthy then came out of the bathroom, and this is according to official court documents, "wearing lingerie and a silver hand gun (sic) in her vagina". McCarthy then began to have sex with the gun, ask her boyfriend "who's crazy, you or me?", a question that, in context, pretty much answers itself, and then proceeded to allegedly point the gun at the man's head.
Cormac McCarthy and Jennifer McCarthy have been divorced since 2006, with the marriage producing one child, who McCarthy says was the inspiration for the father/son relationship in The Road.
The Blood Meridian author has not issued a statement about the incident, but it's pretty certain that if he does, it'll be done with no punctuation, misanthropic grit, and a keen eye for imagery. We can't wait.
