It looks like 2016 will be a year of legal troubles for Dr. Paul Nassif.
As we previously reported, Adrienne Maloof and Paul's personal relationship deteriorated over rumors of child abuse. While the former married couple are cordial and on good terms today, an ex bodyguard caused some serious drama when he made allegations about Paul's abusive behavior towards the couple's three children.
Now the doctor is fighting back with evidence that the bodyguard is no more than a jilted ex employee. According to docs, the personal security professional allegedly made up the story after he was fired for poor performance.
In an act of alleged vengeance, the bodyguard signed off his goodbye email:
"I could not silently standby while you hit and injured your children in angry outbursts."
YIKES! It seems like he was extremely upset considering he CCed Adrienne on the damning email!
Not only is the surgeon suing the ex-employee for libel, but he also hopes to reclaim $4,000 in compensation for clothes the defendant supposedly stole.
Woah. This case isn't going to be easy especially since the doctor is involved in another lawsuit for medical negligence. Good thing the reality star isn't hurting for cash!
So, do YOU think Paul will win this one?
