Universal Studios Torah'd a New Hole

5/29/2009 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oy Gevalt! A girl was supposed to become a woman, but thanks to a Universal Studios fire, her daddy has become a plaintiff instead.

Vered Nisim claims he spent over $150,000 for his daughter's Bat Mitzvah party at the Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park back on June 1, 2008 -- the same day the MTV Music Awards were also being filmed at the venue.

Nisim claims in his lawsuit Universal circumcised his shindig by cutting off two of the three party areas because of the blaze at the studio. But Nisim has powerful evidence the Jews were treated unfairly, because Universal let the MTV Music Awards show go on without interruption.

Here's the saddest thing ... the suit claims, "The fairy tale fantasyland for Danielle which Plaintiffs had been planning for over eight months and had spent well over $150,000 was brutally truncated..."

The family is suing for unspecified damages. One thing is clear -- it's not a small claims court world after all.

I just don't understand why people get so up in arms when rich people spend lots of money on something. They're rich, OK? I don't have that kind of money (and neither do 99.999% of you), but who knows how we would spend it if we did. And if you are making hundreds of millions, better to spend some of it it so caterers, DJs, performers, etc. can work - or donate it to charity - vs. stuffing it in your mattress.

This doesn't have anything to do with being Jewish - it could have been a wedding, or a sweet 16, or a retirement party - who cares? If you rent a space, you should get what you pay for. If there is a problem with the facility, the facility owner should refund the person's money and eat the loss - not the person who rented it. That is ridiculous.

So they FAILED to mention to this family BEFOREHAND that they were booking their party the same night as the MTV music awards would be there??? I highly doubt that.

#13 Gloat much? You and your DH must have a wonderful marriage--not!. BTW, Jesus lived and died a Jew--which IMHO makes him more of a man than your DH.
