‘It was petulant behaviour’: Brooke Shields recalls terrifying moment her tennis player ex-husband Andre Agassi ‘smashed all his trophies’ after she licked co-star Matt LeBlanc’s hand while filming Friends cameo
Brooke Shields has branded her ex-husband Andre Agassi ‘petulant’ after he smashed all his trophies having watched her film her Friends cameo.
The actress, 57, starred as Joey Tribbiani’s (Matt LeBlanc) stalker Erika in the 1996 episode The One After the Superbowl.
Erika believes Joey is actually his Days of Our Lives character Dr. Drake Ramoray and goes on a date with him only to end up cackling manically before licking his hand at the restaurant table.
But Brooke’s tennis player ex-husband Andre, who she was married to from 1997 to 1999, was left seething after watching the pair’s performance, believing he had been left humiliated, according to the star.
She told The New Yorker: ‘In the scene, I’m supposed to lick Joey’s fingers, because they’re the hands of a genius, and I want to devour them, and I’m a nut.

‘He was cute — he was, like, “I’ve washed my hands and they’re all clean.” I was, like, “I had a mint!”‘
She went on to explain that her former partner Andre was less than impressed, adding: ‘Andre was in the audience supporting me, and he stormed out.
‘He said, “Everybody’s making fun of me. You made a fool of me by that behaviour.” I’m, like, “It’s comedy! What is the matter with you?”‘
Brooke later learned Andre was using drug crystal meth at the time, reasoning: ‘So that irrational behaviour I’m sure had something to do with that,’ adding that he went home and smashed up all his trophies over the incident.
It comes after Brooke apologised to Dean Cain for how she behaved during their relationship.
The screen star dated the 56-year-old actor during her twenties – but Brooke subsequently regretted how she approached their romance.
The brunette beauty – who lost her virginity to Dean – told PEOPLE: ‘We had a great relationship, broke up, got back together again after three years. And that should have been a delicious time for me of revelling in it and feeling proud and free because I was in love.
‘But it was as if I was just paralysed from shame, thinking everybody was going to know, thinking of letting my fans down because I had professed one thing.’

Brooke still has positive memories of her relationship with Dean.
She shared: ‘He just was so loyal and loving and just so in love. And I did not make it easy.’
The actress confirmed that she actually apologised to her ex-boyfriend ‘a few years back’.
She recalled: ‘I said, “I’m sorry for you, and I’m really sorry for me.”‘
