A woman is suing Brett Ranter after she got her Achilles tendon sliced during a Hercules after-party at his home in Beverly Hills. TMZ reports that celebrity stylist Lauryn Flynn has filed suit against Ratner, claiming that she was at the party Ratner threw at his home on July 24th after the film's premiere and was injured by a glass table that broke.
According to Flynn, she was asked to take her shoes off when she went into the home. She went downstairs into the basement during the party, where a DJ was spinning for between one hundred and two hundred people. Flynn said that someone began dancing on a small glass table, which shatters and sent glass shards "like bullets across the room." Her Achilles tendon was cut as a result and she believes the decision was made not to call 911 because it would be bad publicity for Ratner.
Flynn ended up being taken to the hospital in a private taxi and had to get eighty-seven stitches. She says a friend told her later that Ratner said, "People get hurt here all the time. Just clean it up."
Flynn says she's been unable to work and doesn't know when she'll be able to. She's suing for unspecified damages.
