Gwyneth Paltrow is in deep s–t! The A-list actress was slammed with a lawsuit on Tuesday, January 29 for allegedly pulling a hit-and-run with a skier at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah back in February 2016.
According to the blistering lawsuit obtained by The National ENQUIRER, the 46-year-old was skiing “out of control” before smacking into Dr. Terry Sanderson, leaving him with a brain injury and four broken ribs.
In a statement to Us Weekly, Gwyneth defended the victim’s bold claims. “This lawsuit is completely without merit and we expect to be vindicated,” she sternly said.
Sanderson claimed that after the mom-of-two hit into him on the slopes, she skied away without acknowledging her wrongdoing. The suit alleged, “Neither Ms. Paltrow nor Deer Valley lodge personnel notified emergency responders about the injured Dr. Sanderson. They left him at the scene with serious brain injuries caused by Ms. Paltrow.”
To make matters worse, Paltrow’s ski instructor allegedly “filled out and signed an incident report falsely stating that Gwyneth Paltrow did not cause the crash even though [the ski instructor] did not see the crash,” according to the complaint.
In a tell-all press conference on Tuesday, Sanderson chronicled the emotional run-in with the movie star. “Reliving this is hard. Skiing with five other friends it was a beautiful day. We passed two signs slow down. I heard this hysterical scream — instantaneous I got hit in the back — remember going down. That’s all I remember.”
Sanderson further claimed during the press conference that Paltrow “accepted no responsibility” for her actions. He is suing the blonde for negligence and negligent infliction of emotional distress — and will be seeking reparations for the whopping $3.1 million in damages he’s claiming.
This isn’t the first time Paltrow has been under fire for recklessness. Though her spokesperson denied it at the time, in 2013 she was banned from driving her Vespa around Apple and Moses’ school due to “safety concerns.”
