Burlesque babe Dita Von Teese has filed suit against a former landlord she charges with leveling anti-Semitic rants her managers.
In a suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Monday, Dita — who is American-born of Armenian heritage –accuses Lallubhai Patel of launching hate-tainted tirades after she said she was moving out and tried to get her $5,000 deposit back. Von Teese, who splits her time between Paris and Hollywood, moved out over a dispute about accounting of repairs to the property. When the landlord turned a blind eye to her payment request, Dita had her managers contact the landlord.
That when Patel “went on Mel Gibson-like Anti-Semitic tangents, personally attacking… and writing to Plaintiff (Von Teese) that she should ‘beware of Jews. In your business no one can do anything without them.’” In the suit, Von Teese’s attorney Keith Fink, mentions other alleged correspondence sent from Patel to Von Teese, including one warning the model to be “aware of Jews. In your business no one can do anything without them. Just a reminder to be cautious…Jews they have shucks [sic] the whole world and still more to come.”
Dita is seeking unspecified damages for civil rights violations.
