Los Angeles, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) – British fashion designer John Galliano took the stand in a Parisian courtroom on Wednesday.
The former head designer for the house of Christian Dior is on trial for anti-Semitic rants that he made earlier this year.
Galliano told the court that he does not remember anything from the exhaustive 45 mimute rant.
He also added that he is a recovering addict and is in denial.
Later on Galliano’s “I Love Hitler” video was played and Galliano took the stand a second time.
In an explanation of the video, Galliano told the court that “The man in the video is not the real John Galliano.”
He also added that “He has no memory of the events and only read about them in the press.”
The prosecution is saying that Galliano could not apologize for something that he never did, even though it is him in the video.
The story is developing.
