Tila Tequila has filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles photographer and former employee Garry Sun for defamation, breach of written agreement, and breach of fiduciary duty, has learned.

Sun claimed that Tila kidnapped his current girlfriend, Shyla Jennings, in Texas and committed numerous federal crimes including conspiracy, hostage, kidnapping, extortion, assault and battery, and terrorist threats.

An attorney for Tila states in court documents that Sun’s statements of the chain of events is a lie.


"Sun's statements are false as they pertain to Tequila because Sun is not an ex-boyfriend, as implied by his statement, but a former paparrazzi who previously provided services to Tequila....Tequila did not show up with "four big guys" at Shyla Jenning’s house in Texas. Tequila did not kidnap Shyla Jennings or kidnap anyone."

As previously reported, Tila filed a restraining order against Sun on Friday which was granted by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.

Tila filed the paperwork under her given name, Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, and according to the documents Sun is ordered to stay at least 10 yards away from her; including her home, her workplace and her vehicle.

“Garry Sun is a highly dangerous paparazzi who tried to hurt me and make highly false allegations against me,” Tila told  in an exclusive interview.

“I hope that he will never work in this town again so that he won’t be able to do this to other celebrities or anyone else for that matter!”

As first reported, Sun attempted to file a temporary restraining order against Tila last Tuesday but it was not approved by a judge.

Tila is seeking unspecified damages, attorney's fees and other costs.
