Celebrity Lawsuits

Celebrity lawsuits never stop. Celebrity lawsuits can run the gamut, but many times involve libel, slander and defamation of character types of personal injury claims.

Stalker and contract issues also claim a fair number of the celebrity lawsuits as well, but since this website is all about personal injury, we'll focus only on the personal injury segment of the celebrity lawsuit spectrum.

In some instances, celebrity lawsuits are more difficult to win that lawsuits brought forward by the less famous. One reason is because celebrities have less of an expectation of privacy than everyone else, so invasion of privacy lawsuits are difficult at best to win.

A second reason is that a celebrity may even achieve a secondary gain from bad publicity. Proving damages in these cases is increasingly difficult. Nonetheless, some the celebrity lawsuits allege behavior from others that is so egregious and defamatory that the celebrity will take the time, trouble and expense to pursue a personal injury case.

Some of the celebrity lawsuits that have made the news include:

1. David Schwimmer sued former Hollywood fund-raiser Aaron Tonken alleging that Tonken told the National Enquirer that two Rolex watches were required by Schwimmer in order to attend the charity dinner.
2. Sharon Stone sued plastic surgeon Renato Calabria alleging that he falsely told reporters that she had undergone a facelift.
3. "Wheel of Fortune's" Vanna White sued because someone used a robot-like figure with a wig standing before a letterbox similar to that used by Wheel of Fortune.
4. Bette Middler received $400,000 when she sued for a similar voice that sang on a commercial.
5. Dustin Hoffman, won $3 million from a Los Angeles fashion magazine for a Tootsie takeoff.
6. Robin Williams is suing a celebrity look-alike Michael Clayton and his agent, Michael Pool, saying Clayton is being passed off as the real Williams.
7. The British Sun is being sued by Cameron Diaz over a story that implied Diaz was having an affair with a married man.
8. Nelson Mandela has filed a lawsuit against a former associate in order to protect his name and a number of original paintings that he had signed alleging forgery by his former associate.
9. Famed British couple, David and Victoria Beckham, are suing their former nanny for telling the tabloids that their marriage is in trouble. According to the lawsuit, the nanny's contract contained an agreement not to talk about the celebrity couple's private lives.
10. Cameron Diaz sues a photographer over topless photos. The photographer says he has a signed model release and Diaz says not.
11. Mexican dog psychologist, Cesar Millan, also known as the "Dog Whisperer" is being sued for copyright infringement, breach of contract and breach of confidential relationship.
12. Talk-show host Maury Povich is being sued by his producer for allegations of sexual harrassment in the workplace.
13. Charlie Sheen, star of "Two and a Half Men" is being sued by a woman who is claiming that the wacky, stalker lady next door is modeled after her.
14. TV Producer, Aaron Spelling is suing his nurse for defamation and breach of contract.
15. Jane Pauley is suing the New York Times for invasion of privacy in divulging her struggle with bipolar disorder.


Many people find entertainment value in celebrity lawsuits since many can be quite dramatic. Celebrity lawsuits also let us into the personal lives of the people we see on screen and give us access in ways we would normally not have. Celebrities, however, are just like anyone else in that they can be libeled, slandered and defamed. And when this type of personal injury happens to a celebrity, it can cost them millions of dollars. Many multi-million dollar sponsorships and endorsements may be lost just by the appearance of impropriety on the part of a celebrity. This is why many celebrities try to protect their names and images so vehemently through the courts.
