Michael Brea, the Ugly Betty actor who cut off his mother’s head with a samurai sword while screaming out the names of people from the bible has now said “I didn’t kill her. I killed the demon inside her.”
The interview got even more strange from there when Brea says he had to leave his apartment because someone was trying to put a curse on him. He went on to state that while taking the train from Brooklyn:
“I felt like Neo from ‘The Matrix.’ I began hearing voices and feeling powerful … They were asking about the difference between mom and mother. It was a sign.”
He then opens up about his attack and murder of his mother:
“I was slashing my mom and I heard the police knocking on the door yelling, ‘Michael, open up, Michael, open up,’ but I knew they wouldn’t open the door and stop me because the spirits were protecting me … I just kept cutting her. No one could stop me. I was doing the work of God.”
Brea is facing 2nd degree murder charges and possession of a criminal weapon.
