> "Kim Basinger did not release the voicemail. Additionally, the voicemail was not sealed under a court order," said a statement released by the actress's publicist, Annett Wolf, on Monday.
Sort of the "I didn't do it.....but even if I did you didn't say I couldn't" defense from one's youth there.
Not to mention that specifically saying that she didn't release the voicemail isn't quite convincing. How about "she had nothing to do with the release of the voicemail", rather than something that reads like "she asked her handler to release it".
