Sophie Monk

Sues Over Car Crash

That Put Her in Wheelchair

4/15/2012 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sophie Monk
Former famous person Sophie Monk is out for payback -- after a nasty car accident put her in a wheelchair back in 2010 -- because now ... she's suing the driver who's allegedly responsible.

Sophie filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court -- claiming driver Delvinder Sing Bains caused her "severe injuries" when his Ford Explorer collided with the Prius she was riding in.

Sophie was spotted being rolled around in a wheelchair just days afterwards, her foot wrapped in bandages. (She is now walking again.)

0406_wheelchair_sub_febSophie doesn't specify the extent of her injuries in the lawsuit -- but says the accident put her out of work for a while ... and racked up some serious medical bills.

Sophie is suing for unspecified damages -- totaling at least $25,000.

I don't know who this broad is. From what I just saw on IMDB, I don't think it was the accident that put her "out of work".

I've never seen her in anything. That IMDB work history is pretty sad. She is very pretty, which means she must be an extreamly bad actress.

She's an idiot. Seems to me the only reason why she was in a wheel chair was because she was to lazy to walk in her crutches. I was in a serious car accident years and years ago. ****tered my pelvis in eightr places on my right side, 5 broken ribs, head injury (lovely scar on my forehead), back injury - was in the hospital for a very long time. I NEVER once needed a wheelchair. I think the reason she is in a wheelchair is all the ridiculous cosmetic surgery on her crazy ass face...those over inflated duck lips is probably the reason she is leaning forward...can't hold her head up.

What a bunch of crap, actors are a bunch of scam artist's and cry baby's. She doesn't even have a cast, so it was probably just a sprain. It's obvious that her "career" if you could call it that is over. I bet her agent said "look, we need a cash infusion; it's either this bogus law suit or porn" lol!

Hey TMZ idiots. She was never "in a wheelchair" and it's crazy insensitive to people ACTUALLY confined to wheelchairs when you say that. She hurt her foot! Please. Sensationalism is one thing, but that's a whole new level.

She's so hot, smoke is coming from my computer screen! But, who is she? As far as the car accident, it's her fault. Why? Beautiful was driving a Prius, that's why!

I always feel that anyone who waits a long time to file a lawsuit (2+ years in this case) is simply a money grubber.

I went to high school with her - she is a talented singer... She needs to pursue Broadway.. or off Broadway... make the most of her powerful voice..
