CSI: Miami star David Caruso has been hit with a bombshell lawsuit by Liza Marquez, the ex girlfriend he dumped while she was pregnant.

Liza filed a multi-count suit on David in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday. Counts include: Breach of Contract/Settlement Agreement, Fraud, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distess (Domestic Abuse).

Stunning allegations in the lawsuit include:

·Caruso asking her to terminate her first pregnancy and then telling her “I guess for now you’ll just be a birthing cow.”

·Caruso accusing her of wanting to sleep with Billy Dee Williams

·Marquez discovering that Caruso has a huge 1970s porno stash hidden in his bedroom.

·Caruso “raising his hand” to Marquez while she was pregnant with their second child

·Third parties telling Marquez that Caruso described her as mentally ill.

Marquez says Caruso officially ended their relationship in October, 2007 when she came home from the hospital after giving birth to their second child and was served with a paternity action! She claims there was also a note from Caruso’s attorney, stating “reconciliation is not an option.”


The couple stopped living together shortly before Marquez gave birth.

The suit reveals that the couple entered into an August, 2008 agreement which called for Caruso to pay Marquez $1 million but he reneged on the deal months later.

Marquez and David met in 2004 and in the suit she charges that from April to July of that year he promised to provide for her and gave her a ring. They began living together in September of that year.

Marquez details examples of what she calls a string of mental and emotional abusive incidents, including Caruso erupting and accusing her of having an affair with his assistant. At one point on a trip to Europe in 2004, Caruso berated her for four hours, falsely accusing her of cheating, the suit charges. She says she even vomited because of his actions.
