Tila Tequila Sues Ex: The Brute Bruised Me

11/17/2009 3:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tila Tequila is letting her bruises do the talking in a lawsuit she just filed against her ex, NFL star Shawne Merriman.

Tila Tequila


Tila claims Shawne grabbed her, shook her like a rag doll, threw her down and choked her during an argument last September. Tila says the San Diego Chargers linebacker had a bad temper combined with a drug problem, and that he humiliated her because of her bi-sexuality.

In the lawsuit, Tila's lawyer, Cyrus Nownejad, included a photo gallery (above) showing the disparity in height and weight (Tila -- 4'11", 93 lbs. Shawne -- 6'4", 280 lbs). The photos also show bruising on her arms, which Tila says is courtesy of Shawne.

The San Diego County D.A. declined to file criminal charges.

Tila's suit -- for assault, battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress -- seeks unspecified damages.

She is only 93 pounds? Crazy! And if he actually did that, I hope he gets what he deserves.

Those "bruises" don't even look real. Too evenly bluish-purple and mottled like they were dabbed on with cottonballs, no hand or fingerprints like you'd expect on arms.

She should get together with Spencer and Heidi Pratt. The three have delusions of being famous.

Nobody cares. She probably got those bruises from one of her reality show f**kpals. She makes me sick. Hope she gets hit by a truck.

She likes 'em big and strong, I see.

Emotional distress? The Emotional Distress card has been played too many times.

Her tweets are a study in Emotional Distress.

EX? What? I don't think they had a relationship before that night. Didn't the reports say she became insanely jealous that he was with two other women and tried to drive off drunk?
