Disney Settles

Ass Slap Lawsuit

Disney just agreed to a self-spanking by writing a big fat check to a woman who claimed a Mouse employee relentlessly slapped her butt during a taping.

TMZ broke the story ... Kellie Rodriguez filed a lawsuit back in January ... alleging warm-up guy Ron Pearson was entertaining the audience during a taping of the Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie" ... when he repeatedly spanked her on the ass ... then kissed her on the mouth in front of her kids.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... ABC Cable Networks paid Kellie somewhere between $20-30K to make the case go away.

And get this ... we're told Pearson is still doing warm up for Disney -- for "Good Luck Charlie" no less!

 No word on whether he's been ordered to keep his hands holstered.

So I mean did this really happen? If she only accepted 20-30k then it must not have been that bad?

After he slaped her ass he should of screwed the crap out of her. After all shw did get $30k. He should have poked her with his mouse tail. And then followed up with a little ATM.

So I guess after the first inappropriate contact, she didn't have brains enough to discretely move beyond his physical reach. Better yet, just beetch slap his dumb azz, laugh hysterically and claim its all part of the show.

I've been to many tapings where he was the warm up guy, and I don't care for him at all. There's just "something" about him. AND, he's very quick tempered. Maybe a little creepy?

The fact that Disney only paid 20-30k suggests they didn't take it that seriously to begin with. That is chump change to them and is cheaper than lawyers fees. If they thought it was a real sexual harassment case they would have handed over 6-figures at least.

Prior to me getting into the audience warm up bizniz (I'm one of a handful of women comics who do this) I had a meeting with this guy to see what the difference in audience warm up vs. stand up. This douche told me "...don't steal my bits and maybe you should warm up the black shows". Needless to say, I went on to warm up audiences for Ryan Seacrest, Fremantle, ABC, NBC...he's a prick and should've been fired for assaulting an audience member. But it's a boys club when it comes to audience warm up gigs in this town.
