Gwyneth Paltrow, the renowned actress and singer, has been in the spotlight in recent weeks due to her controversial wellness routine. Now, he is facing another scandal, since a trial has begun against him for a ski accident that occurred in 2016, according to CNN.
The trial began last Tuesday in Park City, Utah court, where Paltrow was present as the jury began to give the opening statements of the case. The lawsuit was filed by Terry Sanderson, a 76-year-old retired optometrist, who claims that in February 2016, the actress collided with him while skiing at the Deer Valley resort, located in Park City, Utah.
According to court documents filed by Sanderson, the "Thanks for Sharing" star skied out of control, forcefully bringing him down, knocking him unconscious, and causing brain damage, four broken ribs, and other serious injuries. In addition, the plaintiff alleges that Paltrow fled the scene after the accident.
Sanderson also alleges in the lawsuit that the actress and her ski instructor, who was with her at the time, left without seeking medical attention. According to CNN, Paltrow filed a counterclaim alleging that the plaintiff collided with her from behind, causing a "full body blow." The actress claims she was angry with Sanderson, who apologized for the incident, and that she stopped skiing for the day even though it was still morning.
Sanderson originally sued Paltrow for $3.1 million, but later reduced the amount to more than $300,000 in damages. The actress, for her part, is seeking $1 million in damages. This trial is shaping up to be another controversial chapter in the life of Gwyneth Paltrow, who has been the subject of controversy over her lifestyle company Goop and her unconventional wellness practices. As the legal process progresses, the case will undoubtedly capture the attention of the media and the general public.
