Gwyneth Paltrow Sued for Skiing Hit-And-Run

We all know Gwyneth Paltrow’s reputation for being pretentious, self-absorbed, out of touch, and just an all-around asshole. Well, now we can add “inconsiderate skier” to the list of offenses. Because she’s being sued for being a hit-and-run skier after crashing into someone while skiing and then leaving the scene without calling for help.

The actual incident took place in 2016, and the doctor that Paltrow lost control on her skis and crashed into, Terry Sanderson, sustained multiple injuries as a result according to court documents:

“Gwyneth Paltrow skied out of control and hit the back of Terry Sanderson, another skier, who was downhill, knocking him down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs, and other serious injuries. Paltrow got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured.”

And it gets worse. Because it sounds like Paltrow got her ski instructor to shield her. The report claims that Paltrow’s ski instructor stopped to speak to Sanderson, but also didn’t call for help. And Sanderson’s lawyers are alleging that the instructor filed a false claim to cover up Paltrow’s involvement.

“[The ski instructor] filed a false report to protect his client, Ms. Paltrow. Neither Ms. Paltrow nor Deer Valley lodge personnel notified emergency responders about the injured Dr. Sanderson.”

Yeah…unfortunately, this kind of behavior doesn’t altogether surprise me. This is coming from someone who thinks she discovered yoga and recommends that women shove rocks in their vaginas. We’ll have to see how this plays out, but Paltrow has always had a pretty entitled attitude and this story sounds generally reflective of typical-Paltrow behavior.
