Whomp whomp, Bristy! Whomp whomp indeed….
Remember when Bristol Palin got into a heated exchange with Talent Manager Stephen Hanks after gyrating on a mechanical bull at LA’s famous Saddle Ranch bar?
Well, Stephen sure does! And he is pissed that footage of the incident is being used on Bristol’s upcoming Lifetime reality show Life’s A Tripp - without his permission - AND that Bristol claimed the verbal fight was a major reason for her move back to Alaska…
So he’s slapping that a** with a defamation lawsuit!
The lawsuit states:
"Bristol Palin's conduct was outrageous… Bristol Palin first accused Plaintiff of 'being a homosexual' in a degrading manner in front of others … she then in a magazine article blamed Plaintiff for her decision to leave Los Angeles for Alaska even though she had purchased her home in Alaska … more than two months before the encounter."
Hanks filed the suit in Federal court because he’s asking for AT LEAST $75,000.
While we do think Americans are too sue-crazed and perhaps Mr. Hanks should just deal with his emotional distress sans legal action, we will say this:
Hey Bristol, honey, maybe you should learn to keep your ignorant mouth shut and focus on your family… cause you can’t defame someone if you don’t spout silly things for all the world to hear!
