Sacha Baron Cohen

BINGO! Re-Sued

7/10/2009 10:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who sued Sacha Baron Cohen over a "Bruno" attack now says the actor never struck her, but beat her down emotionally to the point she's now confined to a wheelchair.

Sacha Baron Cohen -- BINGO! Re-Sued
Richelle Olson has amended her lawsuit against Cohen, NBC Universal and others, claiming Cohen and his crew were "replete with deceit, fraud and misrepresentation" when they contacted the charity she ran, offering to send a "celebrity" to her charity bingo tournament for the elderly.

Olson claims the character Bruno showed up and began calling bingo numbers "using vulgar and offensive language over the loud speaker system." She says she asked him to stop but he didn't, and the film crew captured her "humiliating emotional reaction."

The suit claims Olson left the stage, went into a side room, began sobbing uncontrollably and lost consciousness, falling headfirst into a concrete slab. As a result, she's confined to a wheelchair and a walker.

She's suing for unspecified damages. And, we're told, the scene was cut from the movie. Welcome to Hollywood.

Confined to a wheelchair AND a walker? How can you be confined to both?

Besides, isn't a walker or a wheelchair required equipment to play BINGO?

Why is it always the money grubbers that claim to be working for "charity"? Yea and pocketing money on the side, using people's good faith to steal their hard-earned money. Never trust "charities" like this.

why is Perez Hilton so mean to Mischa Barton? that is the definition of vindictive! because she smokes a little pot and can handle it psychologically? Mischa is a cool girl and effing pretty, too. No less an authoritative source as Miss X17 herself called Mischa a world-class glamour model! and she'd prolly hang around LA more if Perez Hilton would only just leave!

WTF    

This bingo bit was copied from Tom Green. He did this schtick YEARS ago -- just like every other JACKASS has been copying him for ages.

Borat/Bruno/Bingo whatever... get some original material.
