Paula Abdul

I Got Burned By Tanning Bed

Now They'll Pay

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.

"especially severe second or third degree burn on a portion of [her] left thigh.".......
So which was it? There's a big difference between a 2nd & 3rd degree burn...

"Infrared body wrap" doesn't make any sense. She fell for a marketing ploy. It's a sham. They supposedly use "infrared radiation," i.e. HEAT. heat + heart = BURN.

I just spoke with Paula and here's what happened: she went to the tanning salon because she's a dancer, you know, and she was feeling very anxious because she's heavily in debt with a low bank balance, so she took about 5 valiums with a nice glass of white wine. The salon attendant was supposed to wake her up after an hour but there was a communication failure and she ended up getting a bit broiled. Totally the salon's fault...

Her skin is going to look like an old baseball glove in a few years. Notice how the first thing she said was...they are going be sued and they will pay. She takes zero responsibility for being a complete fool laying in the tanning bed. The accident happened in 2012 and now in 2014 she decides to sue?
