Enrique Claims Injured Fan Has Crappy Mom

7/5/2010 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0702_enrique_EX_gettyEnrique Iglesias is totally Americanized -- so much so he embraces the concept, blame the victim ... or at least the victim's parent.

Enrique has filed legal docs, disclaiming any responsibility for an incident back in 2007, in which an 11-year-old girl had her foot crushed by the singer's car.

Enrique claims the fault lies with the girl's mom, for not adequately supervising her and protecting her from harm.

The accident occurred when fans swarmed Enrique's car after a radio appearance.

The girl has already sued Enrique for damages.  The point of Enrique's new legal move ... if a jury finds he's responsible, he wants them to order the girl's mom to pay the judgment.

I see his point, her mom does need to take some of the blame, she is partly responsible for not watching her daughter closely enough.

So they swarmed his car.....and it's his fault?

He didn't drive up onto a sidewalk and hit anyone....they swarmed his car...
That's like one of the moronic TMZ photogs who jumps in front of a celeb's moving car and wonders why it is painful when the car hits them.
Idiots.

I hope this sets a trend for celebrities who are harrassed by paparazzi and the public. If you are stupid enough to get so close to a car which is obviously trying to leave than any injury which occurs is your fault and you cannot blame the occupant for your stupidity. Was Inglesias drivng or did he have a driver? If he wasn't driving then why not sue the driver? TMZ,like most things dealing with personal responsibility (unless they want to further crucify Lindasy Lohan) has this backwards. Its not Inglesias who has become Americanized its the sue happy ,"not my fault I put my foot under your moving wheels" American public. Anyone who crowds a celebrity's ride should be sued for attempted assault and stalking. Show some dignity people.

This doesn't even look like him. Maybe its because he is sans the mole.

He's right. What kind of mother lets her child rush around a moving vehicle? Take care of your damn kids. If my son had done this it would have been my fault for allowing him.

I agree with him. The parent is responsible for watching what the kid does. The kid and her parent (actually the parent) should be responsible.

Question: What kind of mother takes an 11 year old to a fan stampede anyway?

Answer: Probably the same type of mother that takes her baby to a G20 rally and then claims police brutality when she gets caught up between the black bloc and the authorities.

*** RIDICULOUS. IT IS ENRIQUE IGLESIAS'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS SECURITY THAT CONTROLS CROWDS. IF IT MEANS THAT THE PLACE THAT EMPLOYS HIM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT THEN SO BE IT - BUT HE SHOULD MAKE SURE THERE IS CROWD CONTROL - BUT HE MUST BE AWARE OF PEOPLE SWARMING HIM. IT WAS HIS CHOICE TO CONTINUE TO DRIVE EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS A CRUSH OF PEOPLE AROUND HIS VEHICLE. HE SHOULD 100% PAY FOR THE GIRL'S INJURIES. SINCE HE IS LATELY PLAYING PRIVATE PARTIES FOR CASH AND APPEARS HARD UP NO WONDER HE IS FIGHTING THIS SUIT. HE'S A HAS BEEN. (AND A LOSER FOR TRYING THIS STUNT TOO.)

Enrique was not even driving the car his manager was. But his manager does not have big bucks Enrique has. Another frivolous lawsuit by a bloodsucker lawyer and his money hungry client

@AJLind..omg that's what is wrong with the world today. They all have the same attitude you have. "We can do anything we want regardless of consequences." Common sense tells you if you run around a moving car you're going to get hurt!! How is it the driver's fault?? Maybe the mother should teach her child not to play in traffic???? Keep away from moving vehicles etc!! No instead tell them they can do it and then sue for the stupidity of it after. Ridiculous!! I hope he doesn't have to pay a cent!!

@12 you to must be a crappy parent. When did we lose this concept that children under 18 are the responsibility of their parents? I have taught my kids, do go near moving cars. Very simple idea. I totally support EI, finally putting responsibility BACK where it belongs.
