Dita Von Teese

Sues Over Hurricane Sandy

Blow Me

EXCLUSIVE

Hurricane Sandy cost Dita Von Teese nearly $100,000 ... this according to a new lawsuit ... and now the burlesque queen is suing for what she's out.

Dita just filed the suit against Momentous Insurance Brokerage, claiming one of her strip shows in New York was canceled last October due to the superstorm ... and Momentous failed to get her the appropriate insurance to cover her expenses.

Dita claims she spent $96,920 in prep costs for the show (props, costumes, hotel accommodations, etc.) and it all went down the drain when the show was 86d.

According to the lawsuit, filed by her attorney Keith Fink, Dita says she should have had something called non-appearance insurance, which covers natural disasters like storms, but Momentous didn't get it for her.  And even more infuriating... Dita says the coverage is standard in the entertainment business.

So Dita wants her jack back.

Somebody tell this blood-less pre-retired costumed clown that her business manager probably should get his nads smacked as well. Oops nevermind.

did she really "lose" that money? or did she not have the ability to "earn" it because of an "act of God"?

No one at her level (semi-famous) spends that kind of money on ONE show. She's trying to get paid back in full for sets/costumes/etc that she's used again and again because she missed one show? Good luck with that.

People are worried about the house they just lost, and the life they have to put back together and she is concerned about a gig??

How is it that so many are missing the point? Insurance brokers ripped her off like they rip many people off. They organized shoddy coverage and she lost out. I wish her and anyone ripped off by insurance best of luck!

Another person we turned into a celebrity for no apparent reason at all. She's no Gypsy Rose Lee although seems to think she is.

I can see hotter chicks at my local Deja Vu strip club. And they charge much less money.

I call BS.

.

I highly doubt this "stripper" commands a $100,000 appearance fee so why would she spend almost $97k on props & expenses?

.

When it doesn't make sense you're sure to know its nothing but BS.

I don't even think Lady Gaga spends 100k on one show. This chick is delusional! Not really sure how she got to be famous, she's just a REALLY pale stripper.

There is no way possible that this... broad... is worth that much money or that her lame *ss stage show could possibly cost that much. She splashes around in a plastic glass, barely dressed. How could *that* cost anywhere near 100g's?
