NFL Star Sues Tila Tequila -- She Lied to Ruin Me!

12/10/2009 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

San Diego Chargers superstar Shawne Merriman is suing his former GF Tila Tequila, claiming she lied about claims Merriman beat her up back in September in an attempt to ruin his career.

NFL Star Sues Tila Tequila -- She Lied to Ruin Me!

In the lawsuit, filed in US District Court, Merriman claims Tila posted all sorts of lies on her website, including stories that Merriman "choked and attacked" her, "sleeps with minors and forces them to take drugs," and that he manufactures drugs in his home.

Shawne also claims in the docs that Tila admitted her lying scheme, at one time stating, "yes that is why I did a 'spin' now ... cuz now everyone is LOVINGGGG me."

Merriman isn't suing for defamation though -- instead he's suing for intentional interference with contract and unfair competition as well as trademark infringement ... because Merriman claims she used his famous "Lights Out" logo on her website. Merriman also claims Tila's accusations screwed up a deal to produce a line of T-shirts for Walmart.

Shawne was arrested on September 6 after Tila claimed Shawne beat her up and trapped her in his San Diego home -- but the charges were eventually dropped due to "insufficient evidence."

When will these guys learn ? They have so much on the line and yet continue to associate with trashy hoes. Most could have their pick of decent women, yet they choose to mingle with bottom feeders who eventually will try to bring them down. You lay with dogs, ya get fleas.

These ho women will say anything to bring down a man. Too bad they cannot get thrown in prison and rot. That is where she belongs. Hope he gets millions from her or at least tries. Women, can be the most evil force for a man. Beware guys.

Shawn,

We all know she wasn't lying. Unfortunately, she is a porn star and you are the NFL star in your communinity so you got off easily. Now, both of you can go away.

This dog deserves to be sued. (sorry to all the dogs I just insulted)

The freak announced she is getting married to the Johnson heiress yesterday. So unless there's a pre-nup, she's covered. Proof it will stop at nothing for money.

This girl is pathetic. Because she could not parlay her MySpace fame (lol) into a sustainable career and A Shot at Love is over she is desperate for a paycheck. She tried to snare a rich baller and when that didn't work out...ruin him for press. Now she is trying to align herself with heiress Casey Johnson (good luck with that idiot, Casey has been cut off) claiming that they are engaged and flaunting some 14 carat piece of glass on her finger.

This girl is not famous she is infamous, and like many reality 'stars', she is learning that there is a vast difference between the two.

Go away, Tila.
