Tila Tequila Drops the Ball in Lawsuit w/ NFL Star

1/28/2010 2:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tila Tequila just lost the first round in a ferocious legal battle with her ex-boyfriend Shawne Merriman -- and all because she's refusing to play defense.

Tila Tequila and Shawne Merriman

It's all over a $2 million lawsuit filed by Merriman back in December, in which the San Diego Chargers star claims Tila made a series of horrific -- and untrue -- statements about him in an attempt to ruin his career.

Tila never officially responded to Merriman's suit -- so the court has entered a default judgment against her.

But the decision doesn't mean Tila has to fork over the money just yet -- she will probably move to set aside the default and duke it out in court.

Shirl ~~ t.g.    

Tila needs to ```` GO ```` away and have her `` fake```` baby already! She just loves to attach herself to rich and famous people & WHY they buy into her is beyond me. Bet she's going to sue Casey's parents for child support next with `` her & Casey's `` baby. Only in America does this make the front pages when `` we `` have so much more important things to read about. Seriously!

"Tila never officially responded to Merriman's suit -- so the court has entered a default judgment against her."

Tila was lying in the first place that's why she didn't show up in court, probably never intended to. Just wanted the publicity.

When she miscarries her "fake" baby she will probably blame it on TMZ for printing lies about her saying the stress was too much for her and caused her to have a miscarriage.

Who-Dey    

Well, if TMZ got the info from the courts, I'm going to go out on a limb and say TMZ has it right.... I mean, if a court filed a default judgement that's gotta nada to do w/ Politics & TMZ, but I've got another question...

WHAT ABOUT YOUR WIFEY, CASEY?!?!?!?!?!?! HOW COULD YOU CHEAT ON HER WITH A MAN IN DECEMBER!?!?!?!? UGGGG!!!!!! CAAAAASSSSEEEEEEYYYYYYY!!!!! THIS "BABY" IS FOR YOU!!!!!!!! IF YOU WERE IN SUCH A COMMITTED 'MARRIAGE' WITH HER, HOW COULD YOU BE WITH THIS GUY?!?!?

(lots of sarcasm here. sick, sick famew hore, imo).
