Gwen Stefani Sued
Break a leg, sue a singer. A woman is suing No Doubt singer and concert promoter Live Nation after an accident at the PNC Music Pavilion concert left the fan (suing a band you like; would you?) with a broken leg.
Lisa Stricklin filed on Friday, saying that on July 23, 2016, Gwen told fans sitting on the lawn section to move toward the reserved seating to be closer. Stricklin said Stefani said, “Just fill in anywhere you like! Who cares about your lawn chairs? You can get new ones!”
In part, the lawsuit reads, “This announcement created a stampede rush of patrons from the lawn seating area through the reserved seating area and toward the front of the performance stage, with people knocking over and breaching the security barricades and other security matter, jumping over seats in the reserved seating area, and pouring in through the aisles separating the various sections of the reserved seating area.” Stricklin “was trampled by the rush of patrons and into a wall along the reserved seating area, causing her severe physical injuries,” including a broken tibia.
According to the lawsuit, Stefani allegedly told fans, “I got in so much trouble for telling you guys to come up here!”
THE DIRTY: Stricklin sued Stefani for $75,000 and unspecified punitive damages. Live Nation is being sued for $75,000 for ‘failing to protect her’.
