Tearful testimony on the fifth day of Gwyneth Paltrow’s ski accident trial



In a Park City, Utah courtroom, Gwyneth Paltrow shook her head as Terry Sanderson testified on the fifth day of her civil trial over allegations that she inadvertently crashed into a retired optometrist in a skiing accident in 2016. at Deer Valley Resort.

Sanderson, 76, claimed to have heard a “chilling scream” shortly before he was hit with a “serious, serious slap” that sent him “totally flying”. The last thing he remembers is that he told himself to protect his face and head, and then everything went dark.

This is the opposite of what allegedly happened to Paltrow when she came out last week saying, “Sanderson absolutely hit me on that ski slope and it’s true.”

Sanderson then revealed that he was unable to move his limbs and heard what sounded like an angry man above him, insisting that he had broken skiing rules and hit someone. Paltrow was skiing with her current husband, Brad Falchuk, that day, but Sanderson did not name him.

Sanderson said he tried to say “sorry,” but although his lips felt like they were moving, he didn’t actually say a word.

Sanderson said he was not apologizing as an admission of guilt, but because he was trying to calm the man he was worried about, wanted to hurt him. As soon as his fellow skier asked if he knew who he was and where he was, he said his heart sank as the angry “man in green” took off.

Sanderson, who was asked about his reaction to encountering a celebrity, said, “I don’t worship celebrities, so at that point I didn’t care who it was.”

His lawyer Christine Vanorman then mentioned that Sanderson emailed his three daughters after the “I’m famous” incident. When asked why he said that, he said that his brain was “confused” and that he was “trying to add frivolity to a serious situation”.

During cross-examination, Paltrow’s lawyer Stephen Owens confronted Sanderson and showed a transcript of Sanderson’s testimony in which he admitted he thought it was cool that he had a celebrity run-in.

Sanderson said he suffered four broken ribs, a concussion, and “abnormalities” in his right leg. He claimed he could no longer ski, was often “at a loss for words” and was often lost.

The retired optometrist also burst into tears on the stand when asked why he broke up with the woman who was his girlfriend at the time of the accident.

“After eight months, I had to tell her to leave,” he said, crying. “I knew she didn’t buy it, she didn’t buy it that I was the wrong person.” He said he didn’t want her to feel like she was putting up with a “disabled vet.”

Tarrisa “Carlin” Davidson testified last week and told jurors that after the collision, it looked like Sanderson had been “hit by a truck” and that he was a different person after the crash.

When asked why he filed a lawsuit against Paltrow, Sanderson said, “No one believed how bad my injuries were” and “My dad would say that if you know the truth, you bring the truth, don’t let anyone take you back.” down. … I’m here to prove that truth.”

Sanderson originally filed a $3.1 million lawsuit that now seeks around $300,000 in damages in 2019. Paltrow countersues for $1 like Taylor Swift.

In addition to Sanderson’s testimony, the court heard witnesses from Craig Ramon, an acquaintance of Sanderson’s, who claims to be the only eyewitness to the collision. The defense called Erik Christiansen, a 40-year-old experienced ski instructor who was giving a lesson to the Paltrow family at the resort that day. And Whitney Smith, the luxury ski resort employee who gave Sanderson first aid immediately after the collision.

The testimony of Paltrow and Sanderson contains conflicting accounts of what happened on the slopes that day. The jury must decide whether Paltrow really acted negligently.

She further noted, “The lifestyle of being a musician has been a part of my life. It was never a question of what I want to do in life. That’s always been what I was going to do.”

The appearance of Dave Stewart prompted Ritchie to recall shared memories of induced Last year they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together.

Perhaps anticipating the “baby nepotism” conversation that might arise, Perry asked why Kaya would pursue American Idol given all the “different opportunities and connections” she could have accessed as a child of a Grammy winner.

The show, according to Kaya, gives her the opportunity to “sing my own music”, thereby opening up “a whole new world” for me. She then performed “This Tattoo”, a melancholic ballad co-written with her father.

The verdict from Bryan, Perry and Richie was unanimously positive and Stewart will advance to the next round. However, Perry warned her that the judges would probably be “a little more picky on you” given her family background.

“You know what business is,” she said, “and business is real.”
