Russell Brand, for all intents and purposes, is a pretty decent dude. He does his yoga, helps homeless people, always uses condoms, he knows how to be dignified after a painful divorce… I don’t have a problem with him. Is he a bit… intense? Sure. But generally, I think he’s a harmless bro who’s worked hard to get his life together and I applaud him for that. Of course, that doesn’t mean he’s perfect, and now some bro in LA is claiming that Russell mowed him down with his car and he wants $185,000 for the “damage” (bodily and otherwise) he’s suffered because of it.
The man who claims Russell Brand nailed him last year with his car now says he suffered $185,000 in damages.
TMZ broke the story … Victor Sneed sued Russell last year, alleging he was walking when he got mowed down.
Sneed just filed legal docs … claiming he has more body part damage than Zsa Zsa — specifically his left hand, left arm, left hip, neck and left wrist.
Sneed says he’s already shelled out $45k in medical expenses, and he sneeds another $140k for future surgeries.
Brand says he’s not to blame for the accident.
Did this actually happen? Who can say? If it did, and Sneed’s injuries were that extensive, it easily would have cost up to $185,000 depending on the treatment he needed. This is the problem with America – no socialised healthcare means people go bankrupt over shit like this. Russell Brand wouldn’t be bankrupt if he had to pay up, of course, but you know what I mean.
Then again, it wouldn’t be the first time someone tried to get money out of someone famous over something that never actually happened. We’ll have to wait and see on this one, I think.
