Kat Von D just got slapped with a lawsuit over her 2010 house fire that killed her cat. Cliff notes: State Farm apparently paid for Kat’s damages, and is now suing her for $909,199 to get their money back because they’re claiming the fire was her fault. I guess court papers are showing that the house fire was caused by candles that were left unattended…I haven’t seen the court docs yet, so I’m not completely clear on everything except for they want their money back.
I have one question: Why do people by insurance then? I’m not on Kat’s side at all, but it’s strage to me that State Farm foot the bill and now wants to be paid back. Gasmii, please chime in on this one because I have no idea how insurance works except for how much money they collect from me every month. I’m curious–do they have the right to go after her if the fire was accidental? I mean, she’s not an arsonist. Tattooist, yes. Pyromanic, maybe. Arsonist, highly doubtful.
Either way, I know this doesn’t relate to anything, but reading this article made me think of when Weezer covered the State Farm jingle:
Although comedy is her profession, Nadine has accomplished a lot in her young age. She is a national champion black belt, a world-class soccer player, and an avid snowboarder. She started playing soccer at the age of 4, and continued playing through college where she majored in Biology, but quickly realized her destiny was to tell jokes, not to wear a lab coat. So she decided to be funny while finishing her Bachelors Degree in biology and continued on to get her M.B.A. Nadine’s comedy style is much like her athleticism, fearless. She’s made her way up the comedy ladder very quickly, and has become a club favorite at many of the country’s top comedy clubs, including the Improv chain. Performing in the Boston Comedy Festival and being noted as the “one of the youngest and brightest up and comers” and traveling to the Middle East to entertain the troops are just a few of her notable accomplishments. These days Nadine splits time between the stage, a radio studio, her computer blogging, and a television studio. Nadine’s TV, Radio, Writing credits include: national commercials, talking head roles on E! Entertainment, Showtime’s Hot Tamales Live, The Skinny: Fat Free News, The Sunny Side of The Truth: Real World Hollywood, TVgasm, Zazreport, Daddy’s Girls, Jerseylicious, celebrity interviews on Mania TV, a weekly half-hour television show that syndicates to colleges across the country for National Lampoon and a nightly radio show on XM Satellite Radio.
