As you sit there, comfortable in your pampered existence, never forget that there’s a whole other world of pain, turmoil and danger up #inthesestreets. Well, to be more exact, up #ontheseslopes. Gwyneth Paltrow knows better than anyone about the dangers of the dog-eat-dog world of recreational skiing, especially since she got slapped with a lawsuit by a man who accused her of skiing into him on the mean slopes of Park City, Utah. Now Gwyneth is taking justice into her own hands by enacting what is called a “Connecticut Drive-by“. Gwyneth is counter-suing Dr. Terry Sanderson, claiming that it was he who skied into her! And she’s digging the knife in even further by pulling a Randolph and Mortimer Duke on him and asking for retribution in the sum of $1, according to TMZ.
In the suit, Gwyneth claims that on the day in question (which was 3 fucking years ago), she was indeed at the Deer Valley Resort in Utah and was “on one of the easier runs” that morning, “making ‘short turns’” (which must be slope slang for dodging and wheeling), when the shit went down.
According to her suit, obtained by TMZ, Gwyneth has the resort’s incident report … which states Sanderson “took her out from behind.” Further, she says in the report Sanderson is quoted as saying, “That she appeared right in front of him, thus admitting he was the uphill skier.”
When Sanderson sued Gwyneth, he claimed she was out of control and hit HIM from behind. He also claimed he suffered several injuries.
Gwyneth claims that at the time of the incident, Dr. Terry and one of his friends told the popo, I mean ski patrol, that everything was fine. But now he’s suing Gwyneth for $3 million plus a slew of damages like some common poor person. Gwyneth on the other hand, is suing for just $1 because she’s not in the business of looking like she needs the money. She’s only in it “for the truth”. In fact, if she were to be awarded more, she says she’ll donate it all to charity “to prove she’s not trying to “exploit her celebrity and wealth” … as Sanderson had claimed”. It’s also a flex that poor Dr. Terry is obviously not rich or famous enough to even conceive of.
