A West Hollywood woman is suing Lindsay Lohan‘s ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson for nearly a million dollars because her dog was mauled to death by the celebrity DJ’s bulldog Cadillac, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Farnouche Kamran claims she was also attacked by Ronson’s 60-pound dog in the fatal attack that killed her beloved Tiger, a two-year old Maltese.
Kamran is suing Ronson, Empire West Homeowners and Monica Holtzer, the landlord of the building where Ronson and Kamran live, alleging negligence, assault, battery and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
The suit will ask for $750,000 in damages plus medical expenses. It will be filed Friday morning in Southern California.
In the suit, Kamran claims that on August 30, Cadillac – who has a “past history of aggressive behavior” – ran through a hallway unleashed and unattended.
“It viciously and repeatedly bit Kamran, who was leaving her own unit also located on the twelfth floor, as well as her white, Maltese breed dog, weighing approximately 3 lbs, named Tiger,” the suit states.
“Kamran suffered physical injuries including bites to her head, hands, and other body parts while Tiger sustained injuries which resulted in his unfortunate death.”
After a 911 call, authorities were dispatched to the building and when authorities arrived, the Maltese was already dead.
Kamran alleges Cadillac got out of Ronson’s apartment because the door was left open, while a man who was standing in the musician’s doorway did nothing to stop the mauling.
“During the attack upon Plaintiff and her dog, Tiger, Plaintiff, repeatedly screamed for “help,” specifically to the unknown man standing inside the open doorway of Defendant’s Ronson’s apartment who watched the attack and did nothing as Ronson’s dog Cadillac ferociously attacked Plaintiff and killed her dog Tiger,” it’s being claimed.
“Ronson’s dog bit the wind socket depriving Tiger of air and repeatedly bit Tiger causing Tiger to lose large amounts of blood.”
Not soon after the attack, Ronson Tweeted: “There is absolutely nothing I can say that will alter one minute of today, nothing”
But according to Kamran, Cadillac had a history of terrorizing other residents and dogs at their building, including resident Ms. King and her mutt Cinderella and Ms. Karlin and her pooch Max.
So much so, she now wants Cadillas banned from the building.
Cinderella’s unfortunate clash with Cadillac took place just a few weeks before Tiger’s death.
“(It) resulted in that resident requiring professional medical attention at a local hospital facility,” the documents state.
“Valet attendants were present and witnessed the ferocious attack and assisted in saving Ms. King from the attack.”
Kamran’s powerhouse attorney, Ronald Richards, told RadarOnline.com: “Our client has been a victim of a combination of selfishness, greed and a callous disregard for the safety of herself and her deceased pet.”
He added, “The loss of one’s pet that comes as a result of the neglect of an owner of a dangerous dog that has a propensity and history of violence against other dogs and people is the type of unavoidable tragedy that needs to be addressed through the civil justice system.
“The screams of pain and sorrow inflicted upon our client as a result of this vicious and preventable tragedy will be vindicated by a large monetary award against the responsible persons and entities that all are collectively morally and legally responsible for my client’s loss.”
Ronald Richards is also working with his associate Nicholas Bravo on the case.
Kamran is seeking $750,000 in damages, medical expenses, costs of the lawsuit — and for Cadillac to be banished from living with Ronson in their building.
