Paul Walker's Father Sues Porsche Over Deadly Crash

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadPaul Walker

Paul Walker's father filed a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche on Wednesday over the 2013 car accident that killed the Fast & Furious actor. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

The star's dad claims the Porsche Carrera GT lacked safety features that could have saved Paul's life.

The executor of his son's estate included items from other lawsuits Porsche is currently facing — including side-door reinforcements, a stability control system, and a breakaway fuel line to help prevent flames following a collision — which could have lead to his survival if the vehicle was properly equipped.

Most recently, the car company claimed Mr. Walker was "a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT," thus denying the lawsuit filed by Paul's daughter, Meadow Walker.

Meadow's attorney, Jeff Milam, slammed the statement and shared:

"If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming 'Fast and Furious 8,' and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored."

Porsche will undoubtably comment on this claim, so we'll wait for their response and bring you the latest.

Malaak Compton-Rock is breaking her silence!

Malaak Compton-Rock is setting the record straight!

As we previously reported, Chris Rock and his now-estranged wife had been living with a little girl — who wasn't their legal child — for years!

The comedian supposedly hasn't seen young Ntombi in over a year, and questions began to surface about why the 7-year-old hasn't yet been adopted by the famous family.

Malaak's lawyer had stayed silent on the subject… until now!

Attorney David Aronson told People:

"Although Chris Rock is a celebrity, Malaak and the children are not. Protecting the privacy of her family remains of utmost importance to Malaak. She is saddened by recent tabloid media reports which are full of erroneous speculation and inaccuracies that are hurtful to three innocent young girls. While the adoption by Malaak is not yet finalized, it is actively in process under the rigorous guidelines and safeguards of international adoption policy. The child is in the country lawfully with the written consent of her birth parents, and while here, has been cherished and adored by the entire Rock family."

Well, there you have it, Perezcious readers! Ntombi IS getting adopted! The actor's ex also explained that she's the sole primary caregiver for the sweet kid from South Africa.

However, an insider hinted that the 50-year-old might not "cherish and adore" her like David said, commenting:
