Hollywood nepo baby Sam Haskell allegedly sent texts to his ex-personal trainer where he said he couldn’t bear to watch a horror movie because of dismembered bodies Мультики з українською озвучкою – https://rezka-ua.se/8047-bezdushnye.html months before he was charged with killing his wife and her parents.
Haskell, 35, the son of a Hollywood hotshot of the same name, has been charged with three counts of murder in connection to the disappearance of his wife Mei Haskell, 37, her mother, Yanxiang Wang, 64, and her father, Gaoshan Li, 72.
The headless body of one woman was discovered in a dumpster near his office in Encino, California, this month, while the others are still missing. His arraignment was pushed back to December 8. He could face the death penalty if convicted.
Unearthed texts from May show that he apparently couldn’t stomach the gore depicted in horror film The Forever Purge, messages to his ex-personal trainer Troy Piedade revealed.
He didn’t like the movie because of the dismembered bodies. He wrote: ‘Fools really be getting chopped up in Mexico for real it’s hard for me to enjoy a movie about it, I’m down with purge 2 anarchy.’

Speaking to TMZ, Troy said he sensed something ‘a bit off’ with Haskell, who he met nearly 15 years ago. Troy added that he feels Sam was ‘very troubled’ but did not think his former client could be a murderer.
Other texts show the relationship the alleged killer had with his ex-personal trainer – where they would message one another about various topics from time to time.
Mei’s friends previously told DailyMail.com she had wanted to divorce Haskell for at least four years, but feared his powerful agent father would persuade courts to give him custody of their three children, aged six, eight and 12.
‘These shocking and gruesome crimes have sent shockwaves through our community. We stand with the victims’ loved ones during this unimaginably difficult time and will do everything in our power to ensure justice is served,’ District Attorney George Gascón said while announcing the charges.
Haskell is currently being held on $2 million bail after being arrested on suspicion of murder when a headless torso was found in a dumpster near his home.
Prosecutors allege that on the day following the murders, Haskell hired four day laborers to remove black trash bags from his LA-area home.
One worker said he was paid $500 to remove three large trash bags – adding that Haskell claimed they were filled with rocks before later pretending the body parts were ‘Halloween props’.
‘When we picked up the bags, we could tell they weren’t rocks,’ the worker told NBC LA, noting that the bags were soft and soggy.
Upon peering inside they saw ‘body parts, a belly button.’
‘I was astonished. Of course, I felt bad. We had been tricked,’ he said.

The men then returned the bags and then money to Haskell’s home, telling him they did not ‘want to be involved.’
The workers went straight to law enforcement and informed the California Highway Patrol and the police.
Prosecutors said that later that day, Haskell ‘was allegedly observed and photographed a short distance from his home disposing [of] a large trash bag into a dumpster in the 16000 block of Ventura Boulevard.’
Haskell is the son of Samuel Haskell III, a former executive vice-president and worldwide head of television for the talent agency William Morris Endeavor.
His clients included Dolly Parton, George Clooney, Kathie Lee Gifford, Whoopi Goldberg and King Charles’s brother, Prince Edward. He quit in 2004, and went on to found Magnolia Hill Productions.
The suspect’s father was also CEO of the Miss America organization from 2015-17, but resigned after he was found to have criticized some of the contestants in private emails, ridiculing one for gaining weight and describing another as promiscuous.
Mei’s friends have revealed the supposed fear she lived in for years given the family’s connections.
‘Mei first brought up a divorce when I was getting one in 2019,’ one friend named Jenny exclusively told DailyMail.com. ‘I told her she could do it, but she just felt like she couldn’t risk losing her boys.’
‘Mei felt trapped,’ said longtime friend Jenny who would only give her first name in fear of retaliation from the prominent Haskell family.

‘She said she couldn’t leave because of the boys. She was afraid that her husband would take away the kids with the help of his very rich and influential father.’
‘She said it wasn’t happening. That there was no way she could get a divorce.
‘Maybe she brought it up again and then he snapped.’
‘There was also physical abuse,’ added Jenny. ‘She told me that he had hurt her. He had hit her.’
Jenny also claimed that Mei had told her that her husband did not get along with her mother Wang and father Li.
The parents had moved into their home in Tarzana, 25 miles north of Los Angeles, about five years ago to help look after the couple’s three young sons aged six, eight and 12.
‘She said he was rude to them and ignored them. That they made him angry,’ one friend said.
‘They couldn’t speak English, but he made no effort to interact with them.
‘When Mei’s youngest son was born, her parents moved from China to help take care of the baby. They were very helpful with the kids.
‘Mei doesn’t have any other family here except for her parents.’
Mei’s friends described her husband as ‘weird’. ‘He would make these sudden moves with his arms and just blurt things out,’ one person, who did not want to be named, said.
‘When I first met him, I immediately thought of Jeffrey Dahmer, that same creepy vibe. He would walk really fast with his head down, rarely looking up and never make eye contact.
‘We are absolutely devastated. Mei was such a bright light and loved her kids so much. She wanted to create a wonderful world for them and she did.
‘Mei was the one we would all go to if we needed help or advice. She was always there for us. She was always so positive. She never complained. Her boys were her everything and the boys loved her so much.’
