Brooke Shields has shared some surprising details of events from her relationship with former husband Andre Agassi in a new memoir.
The Suddenly Susan actress claims in her memoir, There Was A Little Girl: The Real Story Of Mother And Me, that ex-husband Andre Agassi was so enraged when she licked the fingers of Matt LeBlanc for a guest appearance on Friends that he destroyed his entire trophy collection, including his US Open and Wimbledon cups.
Remember the scene? It’s the one about a stalker (Shields) who believes Joey (LeBlanc) is actually Doctor Drake Ramoray. During the dinner scene, Brookes’ character Erica licks the fingers of LeBlanc and then cackles like a true creeper.
According to Shields in her memoir, Agassi was watching the scene unfold on the sound stage, flew into a rage and claimed Shields had “made him look a fool.”
Agassi allegedly jumped into his car and went home to take out his frustration on his trophies.
“Upon arrival he systematically smashed and destroyed every single trophy he had won, including Wimbledon and the US Open, never mind all the others,” she wrote.

Shields and Agassi were married two years later, despite the red-flag incident. In her memoir, she calls the marriage a “mistake” and recalls how she had doubts even on the day she became Mrs. Agassi.
“I could not form a sentence,” wrote Brooke. “I kept shaking my head as if I had duct tape across my mouth. It hit me all of a sudden — I knew I had made a mistake. I did not want to be married … I wanted to be a bride but I shouldn’t have been married yet.”
It seems the former couple agree that the wedding day and two-year marriage was a mistake. Agassi said in his own autobiography, Open, that he felt the same misgivings on his wedding day to Shields.
“I have a thought no man should have on his wedding day: I wish I were leaving too. I wish I had a decoy groom to take my place,” he wrote.
