In your face, Shady RV Dealer Guy!
Looks like there will be no push-up contest because Taylor Lautner has settled a lawsuit with McMahon's RV, the dealership who failed to deliver Tay Tay's $300,000 RV before shooting began on his new film Abduction.
His lawyer Robert Barta released a statement:
"McMahon's RV has agreed to settle its dispute with Taylor Lautner. McMahon's RV will pay $40,000 to Lautner, which Lautner will donate to The Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity with which he has a long-standing relationship. The Lollipop Theater Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The Lollipop Theater Network works with hospitals nationwide, including the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas."
That's right. You don't mess with Taylor!!
And now everybody wins!!

And rightfully so!
After Taylor Lautner filed a lawsuit against McMahon's RV and owner Brent McMahon so maturely responded with challenging Taylor to a push-up contest, Taylor's lawyer issued an official statement regarding the matter:
"We have tried to take the high road by not commenting on this matter but we want to set the record straight. McMahon's RV's response to our client's legitimate claim further demonstrates the lack of professionalism that Mr. McMahon, his company and his employees have exhibited from the outset, and that compelled the filing of this lawsuit in the first place.
"This suit is not about a 'customized' RV, it is about McMahon's RV's refusal to deliver the vehicle in the safe, drivable condition that was promised, as every purchaser has the right to expect. A cursory review of McMahon's RV's record with the Better Business Bureau shows that this is a repeated pattern of conduct; Mr. Lautner just happens to be a high profile customer that is holding them accountable.
"Indeed, Mr. McMahon, through his attorney, has already apologized to the Lautners for his and his company's conduct. While we will not dignify Mr. McMahon's facetious suggestion of a contest to settle a legal claim with a response, we do welcome the opportunity for him to resolve this matter by making a $40,000 donation to the charity of Mr. Lautner's choice, and we will be in touch with his counsel to see if he will make good on this offer."
We think Brent should take the offer and SHUT IT already!
