Oksana Baiul

I'm Russian* To Court

Because NBC Screwed Me

1/1/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1231-Oksana-Baiul-nbc-universal
Skating legend Oksana Baiul has gone Chernobyl on NBC ... claiming the network screwed her over by making her sign a contract with a bunch of gobbledygook when all she knew was goulash.

Oksana is suing NBC, claiming the deal she made to star in "Nutcracker on Ice" was grossly one-sided and, as a result, she hasn't seen a ruble in profits.

Oksana made the deal when she was 16 and says at the time she had a feeble command of the English language and had no idea what she was signing.  As a result, she claims the NBC nogoodnicks haven't anted up for the last 17 years.

Those crazy Ukrainians.

Assh0les. Goulash is typically a Hungarian specialty. Should have gone for Borscht. That woman has had to fight tooth and nail her entire life so don't start, TMZ.

She could not legally enter into a contract when she was under 18, so she didn't sign one. Her beef should be with her agent or parent or guardian who signed the contract.

It seems that TMZ has more problems with the English language than Oksana. TMZ wrote: "We're Oksana's lawyer tells TMZ "

We're=we are

Did you mean that TMZ lawyers were her lawyers at the the time the contract was signed, or do you mean that the twist is where Oksana's lawyer tells TMZ…blah, blah"?
