It's long been known that Christina Applegate went to the MTV Movie Awards with Brad Pitt in 1989 but left mid-date, ditching him for another man. And though she never officially revealed who it was, former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach says that he was, in fact, the dude in question.
While appearing on "Elliot In The Morning" to promote his newly released autobiography, "18 And Life On Skid Row", Bach recalled the episode, telling host Elliot Segal: "Well, [what happened between me and Christina] was a brief fling, but we did go out a couple of times.
"She was interviewed recently on, like, 'Entertainment Tonight', or something, and they [asked], 'What was the dumbest thing you ever did?' And she goes, 'One night I ditched Brad Pitt for this other dude.' And that dude would be me. [Laughs] So there was a time on this earth when Sebastian Bach was, like, a hotter lay than Brad Pitt. Of course that's going in the book. [Laughs] I've gotta tell somebody that, Jesus! [Laughs]"
During a hilariously awkward appearance last year on "Watch What Happens Live", Applegate was forced to recall the decision to dump Pitt. She confirmed that the man she ditched Pitt for wasn't an actor, though he was well-known to the public. Applegate and the mystery man never ended up dating, and though she did see Pitt again, they never went on another date.
"18 And Life On Skid Row" came out on December 6 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. In the book, Bach is brutally frank in his description of life on the road and exploits with METALLICA, Ozzy Osbourne and GUNS N' ROSES, among others.
