Janet Jackson is facing a $120 million lawsuit because of her bodyguards' lose control
Janet Jackson is now facing a $120 million lawsuit filed by Bronx resident, Leonard Salati, who claims to be allegedly choked and dragged down the step of the Marquee club on February 4, 2005 by two of her "uncontrolled" bodyguards.
Filed his lawsuit on Thursday February 10, 2005 in Manhattan Supreme Court, Salati claims that his cousin had known Janet since 1980s from the TV show Fame and that's why Janet invited him to join her in the VIP area of the club. But when Salati came back after leaving the place for a moment, the two bodyguards suddenly grabbed around his neck, chocked him and "dragged him down the steps" of the club.
And thus the 39 year old man accuses Jackson of negligence for hiring the two offending bodyguards.
