While at the office, Matiss said Junior was roaming the hallways without a leash. At one point, he rushed towards her and repeatedly bit her on the legs and left calf, the suit claimed.

Matiss said she was rushed to the local emergency room where they told her the injuries were severe. In court documents, the alleged victim said she was a rising gymnast star who had performed at the highest level in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics Programs.

She was set to be recruited by the University of Pennsylvania but could no longer compete in the sport after the attack.

In court, Matiss said Millan should have known to keep Junior on a leash due to his history of attacking other dogs. She claimed that the Pitbull had previously mauled one of Queen Latifah’s dogs to death.

The actress had reportedly brought two of her pets to Millan's Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, California.

Matiss said Millan told his staff to cover up the incident by telling Queen Latifah the dog was hit by a car. In response, Millan denied all allegations of wrongdoing and moved to dismiss the lawsuit.
