Dita Von Teese -- Alleged Victim of Anti-Semitism

8/30/2010 8:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Funny ... she doesn't look Jewish ... but Dita Von Teese claims she was on the receiving end of a Mel Gibson-like anti-Semitic rant ... courtesy of her former landlord.

In a lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ ... Von Teese claims she told her landlord she would be moving out and request the return of her $5,000 security deposit.

Von Teese says she wasn't getting any action in the security deposit department, so she had her managers contact the landlord.  According to the suit, that's when the landlord "went on Mel Gibson-like Anti-Semitic tangents, personally attacking Plaintiff's Jewish managers and business managers ... and writing to Plaintiff (Von Teese) that she should 'beware of Jews.  In your business no one can do anything without them.'"

In the lawsuit, Von Teese's lawyer, Keith Fink, mentions other alleged correspondence: "Jews they have shucks (sic) the whole world dry and still more to come."

The landlord could not be reached for comment.

and another thing, jews are possibly the smartest people on earth whether you like to admit it or not. They are opportunists and see possibilities to make money like no other. While whites claim superiority, jews own everything! so the whites who think they are so smart work for the jews. They know how to make profit out of anything. Something you lack, something you only wish you could achieve.

Actually, I find your saying that she doesn't look like a Jew the most anti-semitic thing in the whole story.

It's possible to be a victim of a hate crime without actually being part of the hated group. Hate is all about what is going on the mind of the hater... if he or she thinks you're one of whatever he or she hates, then watch out! That's all it takes.

I don't think so, that's the reason of the saga been leaked to the media, and used Mel Gibson as example to the very different story.

I reckon these a case of her former landlord being greedy.
Maybe he doesn't have that money on hand anymore, he may have had spend it and nothing left.

Therefore the aggression when he was asked to return the bond (deposit) money.

Or he thought, Dita is socialite, maybe she won't bother with her 5k bond.
Tenancy law, landlord supposed to deposit the tenant bond (deposit) into term deposit and he is only allowed to withheld the bond if the tenants terminated the lease and left the premises in such a states like, dirty,damaged.He has to used the bond money for the cleaning and fixing the damages.

If she vacated the premises in an excellent condition then he has no reason not to refund or not returning the bond money.
