Nothing says "Happy Holidays" quite like ruined makeup, a physical confrontation and a wrestling match over the TV remote. Just ask this gay Atlanta couple.
The problems started when the younger boyfriend, 25, wanted to look his best for a holiday party. And his best includes makeup. On his man face. That, it turns out, flies against an agreement he struck with his older boyfriend, who at 36 realizes that makeup on his man face isn't pleasing to him. Or anyone.
So of course, a fight. The Blotter Diva from Creative Loafing offers these details:
In East Atlanta, trouble was brewing as live-in boyfriends prepared to go to a holiday party. One boyfriend, 36, said he was ready to go but his boyfriend, 25, was still primping. He said the younger boyfriend was putting on makeup in the bathroom and that he "pissed me off" because they'd agreed the younger boyfriend would not wear makeup when they went out together. He tried asking the boyfriend to remove the makeup. His boyfriend refused, so he grabbed a towel and tried to physically rub the makeup off his boyfriend's face. A shoving match ensued and the boyfriends started wrestling over the makeup.
Once the men finished their holiday shoves, they opted to skip the holiday party. Good choice. Then the older gay left to calm things down. It didn't work.
The older boyfriend decided to go out and get some food by himself to settle things down. He returned 30 minutes later and things seemed civil at first. He sat down in the living room to watch a movie on TV, but his boyfriend started "fussing" at him about the movie volume being too loud. He said his boyfriend was just doing this to get on his nerves. The two men started wrestling over the TV remote: one kept muting the volume while the other cranked up the TV volume. During the epic TV remote struggle, the younger boyfriend said he had to bite the older boyfriend on the leg in order to get away. His only injury: a small fingernail scratch on the chest.
So, the cops. Then jail for the older boyfriend. Happy holidays!
