Paula Deen

White Woman Suing Me

Is Also Smearing Me!

EXCLUSIVE

Paula Deen has filed legal docs in the lawsuit that sent her career into a free fall -- claiming the woman who's suing her is trumping up racial allegations and now Paula is out for blood.

Lisa Jackson -- who claims she was forced to quit her job as manager of Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- is asking for damages based on racial harassment, claiming she's African-American adjacent.   As for Jackson's proof she's got African-American ties, she points to her partner's biracial niece, whom Jackson claims is half Black.

According to Paula's new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Jackson's niece is NOT Black at all ... not even a little.  Paula says Jackson's partner has now admitted the niece is Hispanic -- NOT Black.

And Paula's especially pissed that Jackson alleged in her lawsuit that Paula used the N-word in connection with Bubba's wedding, yet has never offered a shred of proof that the word was used.

So now Paula wants the judge to throw the book at Jackson, fining her with sanctions for creating a bogus racial harassment case.

Paula Deen would look much better, and would be much better off if she wrote a letter to her business partners breaking the partnership herself, due she needs to focus on the controversy going on that it would not be good for business, and leaving an open door to continue the business relationship at a later time. I can't believe how inefficient Paula's PR and financial te are. It's like they know the ax is comming and they stay there waiting for it to break them in half!

"yet has never offered a shred of proof that the word was used"

You don't need proof to brand-smear-lynch someone form the South. You just do it. The media do it all the time. And just look at the nolifers around her that convicted Paula Deen immediately. Shameless hypocrites.

Paula at this point instead of fighting something you have admitted to and in your apologies you hinted at the fact you are racist, in the interview with your sons they have hinted they and you are racist.. It would be better for you to pay the girl her money say Goodbye let it go and build back your relations with the people that dropped you.

Wow, you would think Paula killed someone with all the outrage for a word black people use every single day. Paula looks so stressed you can see she is getting sick over this. I do not believe she is a racist or a bigot.

I didn't jump on the media ban wagon bashing Paula. They ruined and smeared Mrs.Deen on just an allegations for pucking ratings! Some prominent Black people jump on this band wagon. Shame on them. I don't take racism allegation serious anymore because people are just trying to profit or seek fame for themselves. Screw you Paula Deen haters. I hope some you go through what she has on lies and ruins your life.

OH, ENOUGH ALREADY! Her book just went "Best Seller". Her FANS buy her books. So all the sponsors who are kicking her to the curb, in a way, are kicking customers to the curb as well. It's unfortunate that she said something that is "politically incorrect", but because she admitted to it, she's being chastised. We've ALL said something that is considered "wrong". So what. Too many people are looking for an opportunity to be "offended." Get over it.

Paula should have taken a harder stance in this from the start. I think the reaction to her admittance is OVER KILL! She does not throw the word around readily and does not treat any of her employees poorly. Why isn't the ex-employee who is suing her being charged with extortion? And for all the corporations who are dropping Paula, shame on you! I do not use the "N" word and do not like hearing it, however it is in the music our kids listen to and I have a hard time with people who are so offended by the very language they use themselves.
