Gwyneth Paltrow’s Trial Continues
Today, the man who accused Paltrow of crashing into him on a ski slope in Utah, Terry Sanderson, took the stand and told his piece about what went down between himself and the actress on the slopes that day.
He didn’t make dramatic faces and gigantic eye rolls like Paltrow did at her shot on the stand, but he was just as dramatic and a bit more diabolical. The 76-year-old’s testimony started on Wednesday, where he made the outrageous accusation of comparing Paltrow to convicted pedophile Epstein.
“’I guess like, what is going on here? This is obviously an issue that someone needs to be accountable for, and if they’re never accountable, what are they gonna do? They’re gonna do it again,’” he said on the stand.
Then he went on to say. “Now we have the… molesting of young children on an island.” Of course, this reference had nothing to do with Paltrow or the ski accident.
Gwyneth Paltrow Ski Trial Is Drama
There are memes being generated right now of Paltrow’s face when she heard those words come out of the retired optometrist’s mouth. The judge called Sanderson “ridiculous” almost immediately.
Sanderson also complained about backlash and harsh insults he has been receiving since the trial began because he is suing a celebrity and not just any celebrity, he is suing Goop co-founder, vagina candle enthusiast, and modern woman Gwyneth Paltrow.
At one point, Paltrow’s lawyer was heard yelling across the court, “This is ridiculous testimony, he’s talking about…” Sanderson insisted that the insults are meant to deter him. “That’s the purpose: to make me regret this lawsuit. It’s the pain of trying to sue a celebrity.”
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Lawyers Worked Hard
Thankfully, the case wasn’t only about this dramatic testimony they also focused on some medical findings and called a few medical experts to the stand. They also focused on the fact that Sanderson is still pursuing damages seven years after the ski accident.
He insists that he has post-concussion symptoms and the berating online from the haters further damaged his mental health. Plus, many locals have been filling the courtroom daily to witness what is going down in person.
After seeing the messy show last week, the number of interested public attendees was even more interesting. Unfortunately, Sanderson’s story has changed a few times, imploring people to wonder what’s up.
When the accident first happened, he was apologetic for running into Paltrow, according to a statement written by her son Moses that was read out loud in court. He allegedly acted like the hit wasn’t such a big deal.
Three days later, he claimed something different and even amped up the accusation saying the hit from Paltrow sent him “absolutely flying.”
Most importantly, though, Paltrow’s faces make people gag at how dramatic and over the top she is acting. It’s like watching a soap opera.
