Britney Spears sued by former bodyguard
After several days of ignoring Britney Spears, it's time to get ol' girl back in the blog. This time she's getting sued by a former bodyguard. Because, you know, why not?
Kerry M. Vine of Richmond, California, filed a suit in L.A. claiming that Spears' negligence caused him personal injury in March 2008, and that her "extreme/outrageous conduct" caused him "severe emotional distress," the New York Daily News reports. he doesn't specify what happened, but she apparently failed "to ensure that he could safely perform duties that she ordered him to perform thereby resulting in physical injuries."
We always think it's fishy when people won't name specific instances as reasons why they sue someone for at least $25,000, but we have to note that Vine also is suing the Pasadena-Glendale-Burbank Airport Authority Police Dept. for discrimination (he was allegedly ignored in Sept. 2007 after saying he had once filed for worker's comp). He's also accusing Starz and screenwriter Russell Gerwitz of stealing parts of his 1998 screenplay A Badge of Deception to make 2008's Righteous Kill, starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. So he knows what he's doing in court, then.
