The flying tomato is about to get squashed…
Shaun White is easily the most famous athlete in the world of snowboarding, but you may be surprised to learn that he's also a semi-accomplished musician.
However, that may be over now because his own drummer is currently suing him for sexual harassment!

Lena Zawaideh formed the band Bad Things with Shaun back in 2008, but has now filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic gold medalist for $42,000 in back payments.
However, the real uphill legal battle for Shaun is that she's also suing for punitive damages for "inappropriate and sexually harassing and suggestive comments" both in-person and over text!
Apparently, Shaun has a history of using his fame to steamroll his band mates — he even forced them to "tour" with him when he was training for the 2014 Olympics to suit his own travel needs — and altogether stopped paying Lena her $3,750 per month stipend once he felt she reached her worth!
Ugh! If these accusations are true, that's a half-pipe too far for us!
