Verne Troyer: You Just Can't Beat Him
And now it's time for a little celebrity legal news.
Or is that little-celebrity legal news?
TMZ.com reports that Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer is suing Ranae Shrider, his former girlfriend with whom he filmed a sex tape, for $20 million.
Troyer alleges that Shrider not only tried to peddle their documented love romp, but engaged in a campaign of emotional terrorism and battery against him.
And no, the battery charge doesn't involve the time Shrider nearly drowned Troyer during a round of bathtub sex.
Troyer claims that Ranae once picked the lock of his door, pushed aside a 100-pound scooter that he'd used as a barricade, then threw him to the floor.
"When you pick up a 2' 8" human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts," says Troyer's attorney, Ed McPherson.
Whoa; sounds like someone's speaking from experience!
