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.

I could care less about the story. I just cannot not stand Tila. Seriously, she got famous because people are idiots and wanted to add her on myspace. Who cares! She has no talent, her music sucks, so does her shows and I am sorry, YOU know if you want a man or a woman! So the show was fake from the start. Who the hell says that! She is a wast of H2O

Lol. Good for Merriman. It was so painfully obvious that Tila was telling lies about Shawne...her stories did not match up to the events and the SDPD certainly wasn't buying it. She is an awful person and went to great lengths to try to ruin him in the media.

sarahhh, you're a retard if you believe Tila on twitter. This is true. TMZ has real reporters stationed at the courts with sources who work there. They don't make stuff up.

Tila talks sh!t because thats the only way she gets attention and her lawyer is a moron so I can see him doing something stupid like this.
