Paula Abdul

I Got Burned By Tanning Bed

Now They'll Pay

1/9/2014 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Abdul
is seeing red -- that's because she looked down and saw her leg burned to a crisp, and now she's suing the tanning salon that she claims scorched her to a faretheewell.

Paula claims in her lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- she went to UVASUN in L.A. back in 2012.  She bought a SlimStar infrared body wrap treatment and then apparently went into the tanning bed.

When she came out ... she claims she suffered gross burns over her body, an "especially severe second or third degree burn on a portion of [her] left thigh."

Paula uses her legs to make a living ... come on, she's a dancer.

She's suing for unspecified damages.

Kimmodes Herpes calls Bullsh*t 3rd degree burns is the lose of flesh. Google 3rd degree burns and look at the pics. If you have Common Sense you'll know she didnt have 3rd degree burns.

Any reputable tanning salon is going to require each and every client to sign a consent and waiver for incidents just like this. And to get a 3rd degree burn from a tanning bed is highly unusual. IF she did get such a bad burn it makes me wonder "why didnt she just get out early". Almost everyone knows when they get a burn weather they get too hot, itchy, or pink. You don't hang out in a tanning bed burning and don't say anything for a year. If she purchased something that contributed to such a bad burn I could understand that but again, most reputable salons sell products with some sort of guarantee that it is going to work with the bed and should have been sold by someone who knew what they were doing. If she bought it from any old store that's her fault. Another reason any tanner should ONLY buy from their salon.

What ever happened with her lawsuit against the nail salon? Apparently it's a challenge to service her.

I can't believe Paula admits to still using tanning beds. Talk about I Love the 80s. Straight up stupid.
