Just recieved an email from Ranae Shrider’s camp regarding the recent lawsuit filed by Verne Troyer which included claims of abuse. Check it out after this!
The suit is for 20 million and accuses Shrider of emotional distress and battery. Shrider’s Rep, Holly Bannon sent the following;
‘Regarding the Law Suit Du Jour from Team Troyer’:
This law suit is ridiculous and riddled with lie upon lie from Verne Troyer and his camp. It is in our opinion a transparent attempt to secure as much publicity as he can from his less then average career in the wake of his most recent failure in The Love Guru.
The only abuse that ever occurred in their household was that of emotional abuse
inflicted upon Ranae and her dog Lacy on the occasions when he hit Ranae and her dog with his ‘reaching sticks’ or kicked them when having one of his drunken rages. This alleged abuse certainly has not seemed to effect his recent round of interviews or his golf swing over the weekend. Is this not the same man who is renown as a professional stunt man in all his movies? The truth will come out Mr. Troyer and your thinly veiled attempt to deflect from your responsibilities will be open for all to see.
The idea that he would sue me as her manager is ludicrous and unfounded. Who will be next, her friends and family? We have no idea who the other two parties are, but no doubt they are equally drummed up. His attorney should consider a change of career before they ruin Verne financially and professionally with these amateur games of Russian
Reaching sticks… interesting.
