Steven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela arrested and charged with domestic violence
Mikaela Spielberg, the daughter of director Steven Spielberg, has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
The 23-year-old, who is building a career as an adult entertainer, was taken to jail in Nashville after being charged with assault.
Spielberg’s bail was set at $1,000 and she will appear at a hearing on 9 March.
Other details about the incident are currently unknown.
Spielberg’s fiancé, darts player Chuck Pankow, 47, said the situation was “a misunderstanding” and that “no one is hurt”.
Last week, she gave a candid on-camera interview to The Sun, in which she said she was abused and groomed by “monsters” outside her family in the past.
“I suffered a lot of grooming,” she told the publication. “I feel like the abuse I went through wasn’t super intense, but it still had long-lasting impact, because it had me questioning “What is my body? What is it to have a body and exist in a body safely? Also, what is it to be an emotional human being and not have it taken advantage of?”
Mikaela, who was adopted by the Jurassic Park director and his wife Kate Capshaw in 1996, praised her parents, stating: “They are some of the least spiteful people I know. I love them so deeply.”
Speaking about her decision to build a career as an adult entertainer, Mikaela said she hopes to do some erotica for private customers or for the public, and get a dancing licence.
“I got really tired of not being able to capitalise on my body,” she said, adding: “Frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.”
Spielberg’s next film will be West Side Story. Earlier this week, it was reported that he had stepped down as director of Indiana Jones 5.
