Miranda Cosgrove Lawsuit

You Suck At Math

... Claims Truck Driver

9/5/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Miranda Cosgrove Tour Bus Accident
Miranda Cosgrove exaggerated her medical expenses after a tour bus accident 3 years ago -- this according to the truck driver who's being sued by Cosgrove for her injuries.

TMZ broke the story ... Cosgrove claimed she was "disfigured and disabled" in August 2011 when her bus slammed into an overturned tractor-trailer that was laying across the highway. The singer and "iCarly" star is suing the drivers of her bus and the semi.

In court docs, Cosgrove -- who suffered a broken ankle in the wreck -- claims her medical bills added up to $184,490.16.

The truck driver has filed his own docs now ... saying her medical bills were NOT calculated properly ... and he questions whether all her treatments were related to the accident.

He also denies Cosgrove's claim that she lost a lucrative sponsorship with Neutrogena after the crash.

I don't know about any of this but I'd really like to blow my bolt over sweet little iCarly's face.

I just wanted to comment    

You guys have to remember, her momager (which, yes, unfortunately she has one) was there with her when it happened. If anything is out of the ordinary, mommy dearest probably put her up to it.

They could have all been killed that morning. I hope Miranda wins her lawsuit. Idiot bus driver doesn't seem to care too much if Miranda, Miranda's mom, nor the other people in the band were hurt. And he obviously doesn't care about their medical treatments. Anyone who has been involved in an accident like that truly knows how much those bills add up to.

There is just no way that she could have had over $180k worth of injuries. Hopefully the courts will see that she is full of B.S. and call her out on it.

How would an ankle break cause her to lose a contract with a skin company?

Seriously people? Yes made money on Drake and Josh, earned $180,000 per episode on iCarly, got extra from the tv shows merchandise, and got paid at least 3x her salary on the iCarly movies/tv specials as well as the "Merry Christmas Drake & Josh" movie. But does that mean she doesn't have a right to sue? Hell no. This jackass cost her to lose major $$$ because she had to end her tour early so yeah she probably did lose that sponsorship deal. Since when don't celebrities do sue regular people for injuries and loss of business? At the end of the day she couldn't perform her job and had to spend several weeks in crushes and a cast. Moreover all of her fans know that the accident really did shake her and made her stop seeking a music career.

It's not like she calculated the bill herself. If it costs around $15 for a freaking Tylenol in a hospital, then anything is possible.

It's evident that the truck driver has never been hospitalized! The costs are OUT OF SIGHT even for SIMPLE problems!

Pay up dude. You should've been laying attention to the road. How he didn't see an overturned tractor trailer is beyond me.
