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.

Enrique is just a typical idiot celeb wanting to get the case thrown out... but I will admit that fans (any fans) shouldn't be stupid overzealous fools especially for a terrible singer like him.

Actually, I totally agree with him. Why would HE be responsible for someone sticking their foot under a moving car? I've seen people swarm celebrities' cars when all they are trying to do is get the hell out. If some of them would wait around until there was nobody near the car.... well maybe he'd STILL be sitting there since 2007! People need to use their logic and get the hell out of the way. And if the girl is underage, yeah... her mom should have been watching her.

Okay, yes, parents have the utmost responsibilty for protecting their children, I agree, and personally, I would never bother with this z-lister, but that said the driver of the car owes due caution when handling a vehicle. I don't think she jumped into the path of a moving vehicle, she was probably trying to get his attention. Shame on the driver. I would not hold the mother responsible in this case, and I think it is a bad attempt for the defense lawyers to get the mother to drop the lawsuit. In other words, if she thinks at ALL that she has any type of responsibility financially then she might get scared and drop it altogether. BAD MOVE LEGAL TEAM! You will simply anger the jury (especially if I was on that jury)!

Keep in mind, she is a little girl. Yes, she is above the age of legal reason, but that test does not hold true to me in all situations.

He's right. What the heck do people or the paps expect when you swarm a celebrities car? They need to be able to keep moving so it's your responsibility to get out of the way. In this case, her mothers responsibility. You can't expect the celebrity to just sit there in his car while people swarm it. There should be laws against it.

That guy has the worst hair piece I have ever seen. How can the paps let him get away with it. Somebody needs to get a photo of him getting it glued on or have him a home letting his scalp breath. The guy is still young, must be very bald to have to wear a wig for the past 10 years......

Hey, a guy with common sense and a brain to boot. E-good for you and I hope you back up what you have stated. Personally I am sick and tired of people not taking responsibility for their absolutely stupid actions. It's all about $$$$$ I am sure, that there is a possibility that the mother pushed her under the wheel of the car...LOL
