As we mentioned yesterday, the case of Woody Allen vs American Apparel will be heading to a Manhattan federal court on May 18th.
Allen is suing the clothing brand for $10 million due to them using his image for a billboard without the filmmaker's permission.
Woody has reached his limit with American Apparel CEO Dov Charney and his pack of legal goons, claiming the company has "adopted a scorched earth approach" to try and intimidate and harass the legendary screen actor and director, according to court documents filed yesterday, Wednesday.
By demanding to include Allen's previous public missteps (his divorce from Mia Farrow/marriage to adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn) in the form of subpoenas and past legal documents in the trial, American Apparel have been accused of making a "despicable effort to intimidate" Allen and "tarnish Mr. Allen's reputation a second time."
Woody had some choice words for the hipster-dipster clothing brand, saying their famously overtly sexual ads "have a sleazy quality to them" and he woudn't be caught dead endorsing the company!
"There are reasons that you say no despite the large sum of money offered because of the product involved, and this very possibly would fall under that category," said Allen.
American Apparel need to drop the scare tactics, pronto!
