I already thought the lawsuit Adessa Eskridge was planning on filing against the city of Los Angeles was pretty damn crazy, but apparently she is demanding $2M for her fifteen minutes of fame. $2M? In what crazy messed up world does she think what happened to her was worth $2M? First of all I don't even believe her version of the story and second of all I doubt anyone of us even if her story were 100% true would think of suing for $2M. Do you think the city is honestly going to cough up $2M for this?
Seriously. I don't know if she is smoking something or what. To give you an example, Rodney King won $3.8M in his civil suit against the city. Now, go ahead and compare that to a woman spending ten minutes surrounded by paps getting her photo taken because they thought she was some tweener star who has a famous last name and got pregnant. Yeah, ok. Well I guess I would be humiliated too if someone thought I was Jamie Lynn Spears. Hell, they couldn't print money fast enough if someone confused me with Jamie Lynn Spears. Of course if they did, I would probably also go into porn and call myself Jamie Lynn Steers.
According to Adessa's attorney, "Adessa suffered and continues to suffer great humiliation as a result. " Umm, who in the hell even knew who she is or was to cause her this humiliation before she decided to make her claim? Did you know her name? If you saw her on the street, would you laugh at her and mock her for pretending to be Jamie Lynn Spears? Well, we are probably a bad example because we all would. But we are snarky and cynical and judgmental. The rest of the world...OK bad example.
