David Carradine

Wife Settles Lawsuit

Over Actor's Auto-Erotic Death

8/17/2011 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-david-carradine-EX
David Carradine's wife has just settled her case against the production company of the movie David was shooting when he died of auto-erotic asphyxiation ... TMZ has learned.

Anne Carradine had sued MK2 Productions, claiming they had a duty to supervise David while he was on the shoot for the movie, "Stretch."  Anne claims the night David died in his Thailand hotel room, the production staff had gone to dinner and told David he would have to make his own arrangements for the evening.

Sources tell us that MK2 paid Anne money to settle.  And, we're told the other defendants -- including the hotel and insurance company have settled as well.

In all, sources say Anne will get around $400,000 from the defendants.

WTF? Did she sue the rope manufacturer, too? Is there NO personal responsibility? This was a grown man FFS.

Why is anyone but the person who committed the act responsible? By that reasoning she should be sued then. Because she failed to keep him satisfied and caused him to turn to a deviant lifestyle. Of course that is ridiculous but so is the idea any one else is responsible for his actions but him.

....Sort of brings back to mind that uber-brave gentlemen from 4 or 5 years ago, who died while having sex with a way too enthusiastic horse. I wonder if his family sued the horse breeder?

On another note---I don't care what anyone has to say--- anyone who dies while hanging from a hook trying to bust the ultimate nut, or dies by consensual horse penis penetration---deserves to go.

And what do you say at the funeral???---He's in a better place???....Artofwar

Was it in his contract that his wife would collect if he died whacking off? And how is the hotel responsible, because they supplied the closet and rod that he hung from? They should sue her for having to clean up the mess. For bending their rod and sullying the hotels name? Will anyone want to stay in the room where something like that happened? This whole world is going f-ing crazy! Everyone wants something for nothing. Unbelievable!

So...someone from the production company and the hotel should have been with him when he had his pants around his ankles and spanking the monkey? He was 100% responsible for his own death. No future conversations will occur about Carradine without some reference to the way he died...like a perv. Sad.

something is wrong with this story, since when is a hotel, production company etc. responsible for the foolish act of a customer/worker etc. In order for all these entities to pay there has to be more to this story and if there is none then the widow should take those idiots for all they got because no way would they be responsible for his freaky sex accident.

I don't understand how it was the fault of anyone except Mr. Carradine.
