Steve-O

Sued Over Karaoke Disaster

"Jackass" star Steve-O has just been sued over a karaoke performance gone horribly wrong -- in which a woman allegedly slipped and fell, breaking practically every bone in her lower body.

The woman behind the lawsuit is named Susanne Ohman -- who claims she recently participated in a singing competition for the upcoming show "Killer Karaoke" ... which Steve-O hosts.

According to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, the show sprays water at the contestants while they sing as a form of distraction. Susanne claims she got soaked ... and as she was stepping off a platform, she slipped.

As a result, Susanne claims she "fractured and damaged her tibia, patella, ligaments, knee, leg, bones, and injured her muscles, bone, circulatory system, and body."

Susanne claims she has since been required to undergo surgery -- and expects to undergo even more surgery in the future. She's suing Steve-O and the show's producers for unspecified damages.

But Susanne isn't the only alleged victim -- her husband is also suing Steve-O for "loss of consortium" ... which means he's pissed he can't have sex with his wife.

Is “Susanne Ohman” a pseudonym for Kim Kardashian?

The producers should have known this was going to happen. They didn't have her sign one of those forms that protects them from lawsuit? Similar to FearFactor which has them sign a paper saying that it isn't their fault if a contestant dies or whatever.

The show was called "Killer Karaoke"! What did she think was going to happen? I personally think she's lucky to be alive! The lawsuit is a joke.

Absolute proof these people filing these stupid lawsuits are only after money - venues carry insurance for exactly this type of thing. Sue them, not the performance itself.

She was knowingly wet on her feet, yet she took a chance stepping off a stage anyway. It's called the "open view" law, in which a person sees a risk ahead, yet proceeds anyway. It's a real thing judges consider......It's not like a supermarket slip where the liquid wasn't seen, this lady knew her feet were wet.

Wow, I've never seen a stage 50 feet above the ground before. I assume with that list of injuries it had to be at least that high up, right?

Loss of Consortium doesn't just mean not being able to have sex with your spouse; that's the old-school definition. It now includes just about anything related to a marriage, i.e. taking the garbage out, feeding the dog, cooking, and being reminded not to get so drunk at the Christmas party this year.

I don't know about the woman, but the man can bone Steve-O to his hearts delight for all I care.
BTW, what kind of moron would watch a program like this week after week?
