Shields would have been 18 at the time, depending on the month. H.R., according to his manager, had just lost a tooth after “hitting a huge stage divider pole at the Reggae Lounge.”
A spokesperson for Shields denies it’s her. This person resembles her, mostly—-look at the eyebrows! But what about that freckle under her left eye? Is that pixelation, or a freckle that was carefully concealed in every photo ever taken of her?
Update: City Paper photographer Darrow Montgomery points out that there’s something weird going on with the poster behind the couch, too. It looks cut off. Also, the paint on the wall is an inconsistent color. On H.R.’s half it’s periwinkle (or lavender, if you like); on maybe-Brooke’s half, it’s white.
