She dated director David Storey on 14 April 2000, and was nearly killed by him when he choked her into unconsciousness during sex. She did not initially report this to the police, but when she heard about Storey's arrest she came forward as a witness. Before the trial she was intimidated by Rudy Tafero, resulting in her moving out of her apartment and not telling Harry Bosch. After setting up a fake audition through her agent, Bosch convinced her to testify. In January of 2001, she testified against Storey in his trial for the murder of Jody Krementz.
