“Bruno’s” Baron Cohen trumps Bingo player in court
Sacha Baron Cohen has a great attorney.
When the actor is accused of any mischief, he can sleep at night knowing that – he’ll get off.
Richelle Olson sued Baron Cohen for $25,000, claiming that he disrupted her Bingo game during the production of “Bruno” in 2007. Similar to Bruno’s interviewees, Olson suffered emotional distress from the incident, from what she labels as his ‘vulgar.’
However, Baron Cohen had the last laugh when the judge came down in his favor, ordering Olson to shell out $17,000 in legal fees to the British comedian per U.K.’s The Sun.
Olson claims that Baron Cohen ordered his camera crew to attack her after she tried to grab the mike away from the comedian. The Bingo scene was cut from the final print.
