Dita Von Teese

Actress Von Teese Sues Ex-landlord for Anti-Semitism

08/31/2010

(JTA) -- Burlesque dancer and actress Dita Von Teese in a lawsuit accused her former landlord of an anti-Semitic tirade.

Von Teese, 37, alleged in a suit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court that when her managers tried to have her $5,000 security deposit returned, the former landlord "went on Mel Gibson-like anti-Semitic tangents, personally attacking Plaintiff's Jewish managers and business managers," TMZ reported.

Gibson, a film actor and director, let loose an anti-Semitic tirade after being pulled over in 2006 for drunk driving.
