Jackass star Steve-O has seemed like he was finally getting his life together lately. Now he is being hit with a pretty nasty lawsuit over an alleged incident that occurred while taping his new show “Killer Karaoke.”
The show has a pretty simple concept behind it: film people while making fools of themselves singing Karaoke. It’s not exactly a prize-winning idea. It’s funny enough to watch horrible singers butcher songs, but they apparently take things to the next level.
According to TMZ, the show’s producers spray people with water while they are trying to concentrate on singing. Now a woman named Susanne Ohman is after some serious cash claiming she was seriously hurt because of the craziness.
She says that they completely soaked her, which caused her off of a platform. The woman says she injured her “tibia, patella, ligaments, knee, leg, bones, and injured her muscles, bone, circulatory system, and body.”
Wow. Is there anything left off of that list?
Now she has filed a lawsuit seeking damages related to the alleged accident. The amount of money she is seeking has not been published yet, but I’m guessing it’s pretty serious business because the injuries she claims to have suffered are not minor at all.
Those are the kind of injuries that could make it impossible for you to work or even function, so if they can prove that the show or Steve-O are liable this could be huge.
One more detail that was added into the original report was that her husband is joining in the suit because he can’t have a normal relationship with his wife while she is recovering. Now that’s taking things too far.
The real question is who is to blame? She was getting involved with a show produced by Steve-O, what did she think was going to happen? I don’t think I’ve ever seen him near a camera without getting injured, or injuring someone else.
I wonder if any video of the accident will surface. If so, we will post it right away.
