Judge: Jenna Jameson owes $92k over a movie called ‘Zombie Strippers!’
Republican Twitter activist and retired porn star Jenna Jameson owes a lot of money for failing to show up at two premieres of the acclaimed film “Zombie Strippers!”
A DuPage County, Ill. judge ordered Jameson to pay a total of $92,000 in breach-of-contract damages, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Jameson agreed to attend two premieres of the movie in March of 2011, but later claimed that she was too sick to show up.
Intrepid movie theater owner Ted Bulthaup sued Jameson after seeing a video of her at a birthday party for celebrity blogger Perez Hilton during one of those nights.
Jameson’s contract required her to greet fans and sign autographs at the screenings in Naperville and Woodridge, Ill. Bulthap said over 1,200 tickets were pre-purchased on the strength of Jameson’s star power — because seeing a retired adult film star in person is probably one of the greatest things that could ever happen to a resident of Naperville or Woodridge, Ill. (No offense.)
Bulthap originally sought $290,000 in damages in order to cover the cost of the skin-flick actress’ airfare, returned movie tickets and anticipated food and beverage purchases.
The judge significantly knocked down the final amount, calling Bulthap’s estimate “extraordinarily speculative.”
