Ashley Tisdale is being sued over a car accident she allegedly caused in 2022.
The High School Musical star – who recently celebrated her 38th birthday – was taken to court by a woman named Lena Gonzalez, who claims she suffered injuries as a result of the accident that occurred on Hollywood Boulevard last September, according to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”. TMZ.
Gonzalez says that because of the accident she “suffered loss of wages, medical expenses, and loss of love and protection,” and she is now seeking damages.
Her attorney, Michael R. Parker, told the newspaper that after the incident, Gonzalez alleged that Tisdale “called names” and “made a big fuss about the situation.”
Parker said the accident occurred while Gonzalez was waiting to turn left into the left lane. However, while Gonzalez was waiting, Tisdale allegedly changed lanes and collided with her.
DailyMail.com has contacted Tisdale’s representatives.
Parker claims the accident caused his client “serious neck and back injuries” and that she faces medical expenses of about $140,000.
The attorney said he submitted a $600,000 request to Tisdale, but because the request was denied, they proceeded to take the matter to court.
Meanwhile, a representative for Tisdale told the newspaper that “there was no aggression or words exchanged” after the incident, and that the two exchanged information and moved on.
This isn’t the first car drama the actress has dealt with.
In 2019, she took to Twitter and accused director Kevin Smith of damaging her car in a minor accident and then driving off without any apology.
The two lived in the same neighborhood in the desirable and beautiful Hollywood Hills of the time.
“Thank you @ThatKevinSmith for scratching my mirror in my car and not stopping. Classy move neighbor!,” she wrote.
A few hours later, a Clerks manager tweeted an apology and explanation.
“I apologize – I’m driving like Cruella de Vil in the hills!” However I did stop courtesy. Then when I pulled away first, I was like, “That’s so sharp….”
The actress seemed to believe his story and responded: “Ha!” Apology accepted.’
The two later patched up the situation in a face-to-face meeting where Kevin tweeted that Ashley came to his house and apologized.
The lawsuit comes after Tisdale recently enjoyed celebrating his birthday.
Tisdale showed her fans a series of beach photos and some life advice after she turned 38 in July.
The former Disney star showed off her toned torso in a black one-piece swimsuit and unbuttoned white shorts.
“The past year has had so many incredible moments,” the MTV Movie Award winner began. “Things I dreamed of but never thought were possible.”
‘Here’s what I’ve learned so far. Manifesting is real, being present is what matters, hard work pays off, authenticity requires getting to know yourself and that takes time, being there for others goes a long way, and when life surprises you and the going gets tough, learn your lesson and rise above! 38 And life is wonderful ☀️’
The High School Musical star celebrated the big day in New York with her husband, Christopher French, 41, and their 2-year-old daughter, Jupiter.
The couple has been married since 2014.
Tisdale rose to prominence as Maddie Fitzpatrick on the Disney Channel teen sitcom The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, which ran from 2005 to 2008.
She then landed the role of Sharpay Evans in the fan-favorite High School Musical film series, from 2006 to 2008.
