Caitlyn Jenner’s car accident troubles are far from over. Apparently the passengers in the Hummer, who were also involved in the fatal car accident that left one woman dead, plan on suing the reality star for $18.5 million.
Not only does Caitlyn Jenner, 65, have to worry about possibly going to jail for her fatal car crash, the other victims involved in the accident are planning on filing a civil suit against her. The five passengers want to sue Cait for negligence and are asking for an outstanding $18.5 million.
The 65-year-old isn’t the only person the occupants of the Hummer is suing. The five passengers apparently filed the same lawsuit against Kim Howe, the woman who died in the fatal car accident, for $18.5 million as well, reports TMZ. The lawsuits claim that Kim and Caitlyn were both negligent in the car crash. While it doesn’t make sense for the five victims to sue Kim’s estate for negligence since she was the victim in the crash, the lawsuit against Caitlyn is another story.
Since the reality star was found at fault in the crash after a 161-page report was published from the LA County Sheriff’s department, the civil lawsuit filed against her could very well be an open and close case for negligence. However, the amount the victims are asking for is insane. There’s no way to tell if the judge would actually reward the occupants all $18.5 million if Caitlyn is found guilty of negligence. This lawsuit may be the least of Caitlyn’s worries. If the court does convict Caitlyn for the fatal crash, she could end up in jail.
Caitlyn Scared Of Going To Jail More Than Transitioning
The possibility of going to jail is a scary thought, especially for Cait. “Caitlyn is horrified to go to jail, even more than transitioning,” a source close to the I Am Cait star EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. “[Caitlyn] wants to make sure that she has the best legal team to avoid any jail time.” In place of jail, the source went on to tell us Caitlyn would much rather do community service or pay fines.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will the five occupants of the Hummer actually win their $18.5 million lawsuit against Caitlyn once they decide to file it against her?
