BROOKE SHIELDS LOOKS ANGRY AT AGASSI'S WORDS, THAT THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE MARRIED, THAT THEY HAD BEEN TWO INCOMPLETE PEOPLE
(from The Australian)
Shields was married to Agassi from 1997 to 1999. He later said they should never have married, that they had been two incomplete people.
Shields looks angry at these words. "I would be curious to know if he feels complete now," she snaps. "Hopefully I'm never complete. I learn every day." Was the marriage for life as far as she was concerned? "Yeah, I never go into anything half-assed." Did she know he had a drug problem before they got married? "No, I don't have that mentality. I'm not predisposed to addictions. It was very hard emotionally. I still feel such fondness and appreciation for him and he got me from one stage - being with my mother - to gaining some independence."
Neither she nor Agassi were quitters, Shields says, so the split was hard for them both. "I think we're both better people in our current marriages [his to Steffi Graf]," she says.
