Taylor Lautner Challenged to a Push-Up Contest by Legal Foe

/ August 30, 2010

Now this could be a groundbreaking—and sexy—new method of lawsuit resolution. 

Twilight beefcake Taylor Lautner is suing an RV dealership, and now the owner of the dealership has a unique proposition for settling the lawsuit: He’s challenging Lautner to a push-up contest. Yes, really.

Brent McMahon, 47, of Irvine, California-based McMahon’s RV, issued the challenge on Monday. Lautner’s suit claims that the $300,000 customized vehicle, which he intended to use as a dressing room on the set of Abduction, his latest film, arrived late and required additional work upon its arrival.

McMahon—who claims that Team Lautner offered to accept a $40,000 settlement from him—says that he will donate the same amount to Children’s Hospital of Orange County if he wins the contest. Should Lautner fail to accept the challenge, McMahon adds, his company will vigorously defend itself in court.

An attorney for Lautner, Robert Barta, declined to comment on the challenge/settlement offer.

Hmm; a 47-year-old RV dealer, or an 18-year-old who’s world-renowned for his buff physique. Who would reign triumphant in this little face-off? 

Do you think Lautner should accept the offer? Especially if charity is involved? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
