Sacha's Alleged Victim Goes Downhill

6/3/2009 8:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've been checking all day on the story we broke about Sacha Baron Cohen being sued for allegedly attacking a woman at a bingo game -- and we've learned the woman who's suing is in really bad shape.

As we reported, Richelle Olson is suing Cohen, NBC Universal and others over an incident in 2007, when she was emceeing a charity bingo match for the elderly. Olson says she was told a celebrity would come to call numbers, and none other than Bruno appeared. She claims she tried grabbing the mic back after he was "vulgar and offensive," and he allegedly attacked her. Olson says she suffered brain bleeds and is confined to a wheelchair.

Now we're told that since the incident, people who play bingo with Olson say they have watched her deteriorate before their eyes. She's lost "drastic amounts of weight" and is extremely frail. In fact, we're told just last Saturday Olson fell during a bingo game, hit her head and bled. An ambulance came ... she eventually went to the ER where she was treated.

One bingo player says Olson looks like she has aged 20 years in the last year-and-a-half.

And I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact that she is probably pushing 80. Nobody under 70 plays bingo.

What a scam. Obviously this lady has a legitimate problem but I don't think it was caused by Cohen.

If you read to hear what happened, she was crying. This is a human emotion that she was experiencing AWAY FROM COHEN and was fine at the time. She cried so hard that she fell to the ground. This is NOT his fault. If this were someone else and they didn't cry from a JOKE, she wouldn't have had this problem. Obviously the series of events which Cohen was involved in had to do with this injury, but it wasn't his fault that she fell.

If I was the judge, I would say good luck with your injuries and sorry they took place but you're not owed anything. This is just an unfortunate incident.

If Cohen were actually funny, I might find it in my heart to forgive him. Since he isn't funny, she can ruin him for all I care.

His characters are disgraceful. I'm glad she's hitting Cohen where it hurts him the most - his wallet. That's the only way to receive any remorse from his kind.

It's obvious that this old hag is just being set up by some lawyer. She's gonna get some money from Cohen, Cohen is still a millionaire, and you guys are still losers!! Sad when a comedian can expose the racism and predudice of redneck Americans!!

This guy has a bad case of "the world revolves around me". His bad comedy finally came back to bit him in the ass. Poor woman, it's beyond me why he's not in jail.
