I thought, “Is this a prank? Is someone trying to do something perverted? This is really very strange”. completed.
Anderson and his lawyers have presented a different version, claiming that the actress lost control while skiing and fell on him, “throwing him down, causing him brain damagefour broken ribs and other serious injuries.”
