Olympic Gold Medal Winner Sued by Parents

Tianna Madison won a gold medal in the Olympics for her athletic abilities. However, mouth may be earning her problems. Her parents, who attended the Olympic games to watch their daughter, are alleging that Tianna has been falsely speaking ill of them. In fact, yesterday, Tianna's parents filed a lawsuit against her for defamation, libel, and slander.

The lawsuit allegations that Tianna has falsely made statements that her parents mismanaged Tianna's finances. Additionally, the petition alleges that Tianna has made false statements that they knowingly allowed a boy into their home in her presence, and that this boy had supposedly molested Tianna in the past.

This will be an interesting civil lawsuit for the lawyers. Alas, she is a public figure, but her parents aren't. As an attorney, it will be interesting to see how this turns out.
