Shaun White Sued For Sexual Harassment By His Own Bandmate!

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!

Estelle Balet, a world champion snowboarder from Switzerland, died on Tuesday after being caught in an avalanche during a snowboarding film shoot in the Alps.

Balet, just 21 years old, was filming a downhill run on Le Portalet, a mountain in Switzerland near the country's southwest border with Italy and France, when she followed another snowboarder through a narrow ravine.

That triggered the avalanche that carried on for nearly three-quarters of a mile down the mountain, catching and trapping the young snowboarder in its wake.

Balet was equipped with all the proper emergency gear: she was wearing a rescue beacon, a helmet, and an airbag — what snowboarders use to create an air pocket should they be trapped in an avalanche — but

Todd Palin is one lucky guy!

Just a few weeks after Todd found himself in a horrific snowmobile accident, his wifey Sarah Palin took to Facebook to share some good news about his recovery.

In the emotional Thursday afternoon post, Sarah expressed how grateful she is for all the love and support following the incident. Her words of gratitude echoed her husband of thirty five years who graciously added that he intends to "pay it forward" once he's all better.

All sentimental stuff aside, Todd made light of the situation when he admitted to binge watching Deadliest Catch (why aren't we surprised?) and Bering Sea Gold from his comfy couch in Alaska we guess bad TV is always a good cure!

This could have ended very differently.

As we previously reported, Todd Palin was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident in Alaska Sunday night, and while his wife Sarah Palin is far from our favorite celeb, we'd never wish harm on her or her family.

That's why we're excited to report that despite two collapsed lungs, multiple broken bones, and a bruised liver, the 51-year-old is currently expected to recover.

Demi Lovato Just Shoved Tampons Up Her Nose… To Fight A Cold?!

| Filed under: Demi LovatoHIGHlariousSnow SportsFunnyInstagram

Demi is super innovative!

Demi Lovato sure is resourceful!

The 23-year-old had a tough time riding a snow mobile on Thursday, considering she's apparently suffering from a cold! The former Disney darling took to Instagram to share a silly selfie (above) with tampons — yes, tampons — shoved right up her nose!

For those of you who are very confused, and are more familiar with the feminine care products being shoved, well, somewhere else, the pop princess explained that her nose was running and she had to figure out a way to make it stop!

Video: Demi & *NSYNC Are In Fall Out Boy's Music Video!

She wrote in the caption:

"When you snow mobile with a cold….. Nose tampons from @DevonneByDemi coming soon… 🍜"

It's almost like the brunette beauty just recreated a scene from She's The Man! Except instead of plugging up a bloody nose she's stopping snot from flowing out of her nostrils.

LOL! And also ewwwww!

But we have to admit, even with tampons stuck right on up there, Demi certainly is Irresistable, don't you think?

Join the ski club.

It sucks to live in a world where people like Kim Davis can dictate your rights, but thanks to athletes like Gus Kenworthy, we're one step closer to true equality!

You may remember the 24-year-old skier from Sochi thanks to his silver medal and/or puppy-saving capabilities, but Gus is also going down in history as one of the first Olympians to come out at gay!

Congrats, Gus!
