Rod Stewart

Sued By Personal Trainer

Your Son's a Chump!

This is America, and your medical insurance is a joke -- so says one personal trainer in Hollywood, who's now suing Rod Stewart and his son Sean ... after Sean allegedly attempted to use his med insurance to cover his physical therapy bills.

Randy Rene -- aka The Body Architect -- filed the small claims lawsuit against Sean for $5,440 for services rendered from March to May last year.

Sources close to the Stewarts tell TMZ, Sean hired Randy to help rehabilitate himself following a car accident in which he injured his lower back and shoulder.

When all was said and done, we're told Randy asked Sean for the money, but Sean told Randy to go through his medical insurance instead.

Randy insisted that wouldn't work, and now he's dragging the Stewarts to court. As for why Rod is involved, our best guess is Rod's name is on the insurance and Randy figures suing Rod too is the easiest way to get paid.

It's not the first time Sean was sued by a personal trainer -- back in 2008, some guy named Xavier sued Sean for 4 months of unpaid sessions.

Calls to the Stewarts weren't returned.

Another celebrity, Dr H from the biggest loser stiffed me for work I did. These celebrity's with all their money always try and get away with this stuff. Just another rich person who does not care that people who work hard just to live month to month should get paid for the work they hire them to do. Feel free to post on The clinic by Dr H Facebook page to pay his bill. I had to file suite for work I did in February and still have to wait until October for court.

Medical insurance is supposed to cover physical rehab. However, if the P.T. is not certified as a P.T. then it would not be considered 'medically necessary"

Look at that kid- total rotten spoiled goofball. He had access to one of the best trainers in the world, but has no ambition or motivation to make the most of it. Waste waste waste. Makes me sick.

He should have worked out how he would get paid up front. Sometimes doctors lead people on about having insurance to cover it and then they are too lazy to file the paperwork or know that it will be rejected anyway. Maybe he thinks since this guy has a rich father, he will just take care of it.


Usually payment is due at time of service, not after you have led someone on for months thinking that their insurance was covering it.

I don't know why TMZ decided to inject a little political commentary on this story...this is simply about not paying a bill. The chump is trying to avoid paying, that's all, and the health insurance angle is just a way to delay any payment. Maybe he thinks the physical therapist will just give up after a while.
