Jodie Sweetin of Full House sues over year-old car accident
Jodie Sweetin may look like she's getting along just fine -- at least physically -- with her kids. But apparently $$$ problems still loom. The ex-Stephanie Tanner is suing for, among other things, "future loss of earnings and future medical expenses" tied to a March 2011 car accident in Los Angeles.
Chalk this up as the latest drama for actress Jodie Sweetin, best known as middle-child Stephanie Tanner on the long-running series Full House.
A year and a half after it was reported the 30-year-old owed $30,000 in back taxes, Sweetin is seeking nearly that much money in a lawsuit filed Thursday.
The lawsuit to the tune of around $25,000 stems from a March 2011 car accident involving Clark Taylor Savros.
Sweetin claims, by way of TMZ, that she's already racked up that much in medical bills, vehicle damage and lost wages.
E! also reports Sweetin is seeking monies for "future loss of earning and future medical expenses."
That must have been one heck of an accident.
The proof is in the tweets?
And, indeed, Sweetin did tweet about it — all the way back at the time of the wreck.
Shortly after the smash-up, the famous mom put it like this: "Sorry guys! Had a car accident, im ok. A wrist fracture and neck and body are really sore. Car totaled. Not fun :( but thankful not worse!"
In a tweet to her older Full House sis, D.J. (real name: Candace Cameron Bure), Sweetin claims she was driving home from a movie premiere when the aforementioned Savros turned left in front her as she went through a busy intersection.
"Hit them, totaled my car :(," she wrote.
"Thankfully, kids weren't in the car," Sweetin added to a fan. "But my friend and I got pretty banged up. Taking it easy at home with the family now!"
Whatever the case may be, Sweetin's post-Full House life has played out, at least until recently, like that of many child stars: She's been divorced (twice), gone public about her struggles with meth addiction and there's the whole back-taxes issue from 2009.
