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.

I agree with #46 moveover, I can't stand this guy. When a commercial comes on for him and his stupid movie I have to change the channel! Wish he would go away forever!!!

Reading about her injuries has cause me to stop being able to get an erection when I think about non-sexual things.
I'm going to sue her for 100 blajallion dollars for emotional damages.
I can only get it up now when I watch porn and have hot women give me lap dances or when I think about sex.

Oh the humiliation!

Richelle Olson is the reason why Baron Cohen became gay. Bruno should sue Richelle Olson for harassing him!

LOL over bruno????? Sorry shes handicapped but maybe she had another MEDICAL condition that caused her to lose conciousness. I know when i've gotten upset, cried whatever, i never fainted. She should've sought help from her doctor. NOT looking for a easy way to pay her medical bills, which i don't think BRUNO is responsible for.

Richelle Olson had a temper tantrum. I'd say the answer to this sounds more like "Xanax" than "Litigation."

So she lied to the court in her first filing and is now making up another lie to milk Cohen. Since it was never aired, why not get an injunction to have it destroyed? There's no reason to get damages if the footage never gets out. She needs to get a real job and stop trying to steal from others.
