Because America is the land of the sue-happy hos, the lady whose face got swatted by Tim McGraw after she got handsy and ripped his jeans during a show in Atlanta has hired a lawyer and in a SHOCKING turn of events, the lawyer isn’t Gloria Allred. But the woman got herself a lawyer and she’s probably getting ready to slap Tim McGraw in the face with a lawsuit if he doesn’t slap her in the face with a giant check.
TMZ says that the woman, Jesslyn Taylor, let Tim McGraw’s team know, through her lawyer, that she’s not going to take a swat to the face and walk away. Jesslyn hasn’t officially filed a lawsuit or asked for money yet, but it’s obvious that she’s looking for cash. She claims that she was just an overexcited fan who wanted to touch him and she didn’t deserved to get slapped down. Jesslyn swears she wasn’t going for his dick. The Atlanta PD looked at the video and told TMZ that they’re on Team Tim, because it’s clear that she was the aggressive one and he was just protecting his crotch. The cops said at the time that they’d thoroughly investigate the whole thing if she filed a complaint. She never did. A few days after Tim swatted Jesslyn, he said some words about it to ET Canada and didn’t say much while doing so:
“Sometimes things can lose context and perspective. I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on. I think it was an unfortunate situation I think all the way around. But it happened, it happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on. It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it. You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react. There’s nothing to be said about it.”
Jesslyn claims that not only was she slapped, but she was also kicked out of the show and feels humiliated. She wants an apology from Tim and by “apology from Tim” I’m guessing she means that she wants him to make it rain all over her.
So recap: Jesslyn gropes Tim’s leg twice, gets swatted for it and now she’s the one who wants money for pain and suffering? If Tim gives her a dollar, expect the “grope body, get slapped, sue a bitch” scheme to be the new easy scheme of easy schemes. The thing is, I don’t even know why Tim slapped her. All he had to was whistle for Faith Hill and she’d run out and bark at Jesslyn to death.
Jesslyn threatening to sue is ridiculous, but if she does file a lawsuit and states that “Truck Yeah,” the song that Tim was performing when he swatted her, brings her emotional distress and she wants it erased from earth, I’m all for her ridiculous lawsuit!
