Filed under: Legal MattersVenus Williams

no title

It seemed Venus Williams had gone from at fault to in the clear after video of her fatal car accident had shown she had not illegally entered the intersection.

But the estate of the late Jerome Barson is not giving up its wrongful death lawsuit just yet.

According to TMZ, lawyers have now filed a request for all of the tennis star's phone records to double check she wasn't on her cell just before or during the accident.

They have also asked for copies of any prescriptions for drugs Venus may have taken in the 72 hours before.

Police have already said Venus wasn't distracted by her phone and that drugs and alcohol played no part in the accident. Are the attorneys just grasping at straws?

But on Friday the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department issued a press release, along with security camera footage of the accident, revealing:

"After the initial investigation was conducted, new evidence into the incident was located. Based on the evidence obtained in the ongoing investigation, it has been determined the vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal."

Police also confirmed through that the tennis star was, as she had said, going just 5 mph when the two cars collided. In fact, they say they confirmed BOTH drivers' stories. How??

In case you haven't heard, the tennis star was found at fault for a car accident in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9, in which a 78-year-old man named Jerome Barson was killed.

Jerome's wife Linda Barson, who was also in the car, has reportedly already filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Venus.

Venus Williams Sued For Wrongful Death In Fatal Car Crash

Venus Williams will need to lawyer up.

It's not looking good for Venus Williams.

As we previously reported, the tennis star was found to be "at blame" for a June 9 car accident which left the driver with serious injuries and her husband with critical injuries. He passed away in the ICU two weeks later.

According to TMZ, Jerome Barson's wife, Linda, is now suing the 37-year-old for wrongful death.

It's said her husband suffered massive internal bleeding, a fractured spine, and massive internal organ damage before succumbing to his injuries 14 days later on June 22. The surviving victim had a cracked sternum and multiple broken bones after the crash.

In the lawsuit filed by their lawyer, Michael Steinger, it claims Venus failed to yield the right of way after blowing through a red light while driving too fast while distracted. Thus, this reckless driving made the accident unavoidable. Additionally, the impact

Was Caitlyn Jenner Impaired By Her Meds During The Car Accident That Tragically Killed Kim Howe?! Kim's Step-Kids Seem To Think So!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersCaitlyn Jenner

They want to know everything she was taking!

Caitlyn Jenner may be off the hook for manslaughter, but she's STILL in the middle of a wrongful death battle over the February car crash that killed Kim Howe.

The victim's step-kids have filed legal papers that request the names of the medications the 65-year-old was taking at the time, because they think that they could have caused her driving to be impaired.

But, after the arrest, the former Olympian passed a field sobriety test — so authorities had deemed she was good to drive.

According to the docs, the reality star has deposed a paparazzo who was also involved, because she claims she was chased by a few photogs at the time of the crash.

It'll be very interesting to see how the rest of the lawsuit unfolds, considering officials had previously reported that Caitlyn wasn't impaired back then.

What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers?

Bruce Jenner Thinks The Wrongful Death Suit Against Him Should Be Thrown Out — Find Out Why HERE

Filed under: Legal MattersBruce Jenner

Bruce Jenner is trying to make the wrongful death suit against him go away!

Bruce Jenner has a lot on his plate right now.

But he doesn't think a wrongful death lawsuit should be one of them.

Back in February, Bruiser was involved in a fatal car accident in Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway.

After learning that Kim Howe had died in the collision, her two stepkids decided to try to cash in.

Earlier this month, William and Dana filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Olympian, claiming that he was "careless and negligent" during the crash, and that he was speeding when he rear-ended Kim's car, pushing it into oncoming traffic.
