p2pnet news | Off Topic:- NBA basketball star Tony Parker is suing ‘celebrity’ site X17online for a cool $20 million.
Parker says X17online published French model Alexandra Paressant’s claims that she and Parker had an affair two months after he married Eva Longoria.
Longoria proved she had a sense of humour when an alleged sex tape featuring her and her husband showed up online.
It turned out to be a spoof engineered with the help of Perry Hilton.
But this time, she wasn’t amused, and nor was Parker.
“X17, which published Alexandra Paressant’s allegations, copies of what the 26-year-old said were text messages she and Parker exchanged and other documents that purportedly supported her story, ‘had to know that the story was false, or at the very least, it had to have entertained serious doubts about the credibility of its supposed source,’ the complaint states,” says E! Online, adding:
“According to the suit, none of the company’s reporters contacted Parker’s people to verify Paressant’s story before posting its first related item, an exclusive time-stamped Dec. 12, 2007 at 9:28 a.m. and headlined ‘I Slept with Tony Parker,’ and no efforts were made to retract the sordid tale after X17 ‘was informed, in no uncertain terms’ that the story was false.”
