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.

He is a one trick pony and had to stoop to scr*wing with a bingo group to find people who aren't on to his tired act yet. In an effort to be 'funny' at someone else's expensive his lack of concern for the other person has caught up with him. Whether or not she was on the edge of failing health his bit could only have pushed her sooner over that edge.
Cohen, we have seen your a**, ba**s, you done your voices, and pulled the wool over the old and unsuspecting. All you have done is taken one part of Tom Green and Jacka** and made it into a 'career'. Truly genius work...enjoy telling these stories when you are sitting in a bingo hall crapping in your diaper.

There was a time when Ali G was pretty funny. That time was long long......LONG ago. And LONG before 2007. What the hell was he playing that sissy mary for anyways, I never did care for that character. Anyways, he uses some pretty f'd up judgment by rudely interrupting a senior citizen bingo game. These people are in they're golden years and he wants to mess with their game? Call this a case of instant karma.

Case will be thrown out. He's not at fault. Anyone can make someone cry or feel humiliated, but its not their fault if the person falls and gets injured in a DIFFERENT ROOM.

I don't like the Cohen guy either but I just don't understand why she didn't report the incident the same year it happened. I bet you anything that when her family, attorney, whoever found out who this man really was (Cohen) they saw $$$$$$$$! This woman never would of had the grounds to sue anyone if this was just a normal prank. I dont see this going in her favor at all...too bad...better luck next time old bingo lady.
