It is important to chose your words carefully, particularly because you never know how they may be used against you. Terry Sanderson, the guy suing Gwyneth Paltrow for a 2016 ski accident, should have heeded this advice.
On March 27, 2023, he testified in court to justify why he sent an email to his kids with the subject line “I’m famous” after the event happened.
Sanderson said that he didn’t choose his words properly, not at all how he felt and he was genuinely trying to inject a little levity to a serious issue and it backfired, adding that his mind was “scrambled” for hours following the event.
Sanderson went on to add that he was only attempting to inform his children about the event before they heard it from someone else.
In 2019, the 76-year-old filed a lawsuit against Gwyneth Paltrow, alleging that the accident resulted in irreversible brain impairment, fractured ribs, and mental suffering. Although both sides agree that the collision occurred, they disagree on who caused it.
