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 – has been taken to court by a woman named Lena Gonzalez, who claims she sustained injuries as a result of the accident on Hollywood Boulevard last September, according to the British Daily Mail. TMZ.
Gonzalez says that because of the accident she “lost her wages, lost medical expenses, lost love and protection,” and is now seeking compensation.
Her attorney, Michael R. Parker told the newspaper that after the incident, Gonzalez alleged that Tisdale “called her names” and “made a huge fuss about the situation”.
Parker explained that the accident occurred while Gonzalez was waiting to turn left in the left lane. However, while Gonzalez was waiting, Tisdale allegedly changed course and collided with her.
DailyMail.com has reached out to Tisdale representatives.
Parker claims that the accident caused his client “serious neck and back injuries” and that she faces medical expenses of approximately $140,000.
The lawyer said he filed a motion for $600,000 with Tisdale, but because the motion was denied, they proceeded to take the matter to court.
Meanwhile, a representative for Tisdale told the newspaper: “There was no aggression or words exchanged” after the incident, and that the two exchanged information and moved on.
This isn’t the first vehicle 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 sought after and beautiful Hollywood Hills at the time.
“Thanks @ThatKevinSmith for scratching my mirror in my car and not stopping. Neat move neighbour!” she wrote.
A few hours later, Clerks’ manager tweeted an apology and explanation.
“I apologize – I drive like Cruella de Vil in the hills!” However I did stop courtesy. Then when I pulled away first, I said, “That’s too mustache…”
The actress seemed to have believed his story and replied, “Ha!” Apology accepted.’
The two later patch up the situation in a face-to-face meeting where Kevin tweets that Ashley came to his house and apologized.
The lawsuit comes after Tisdale recently enjoyed celebrating his birthday.
Tisdale showed her fans a set of beach pics and some life advice after she turned 38 in July.
The former Disney star showed off her trim torso in a black one-piece bathing suit and unbuttoned white shorts.
“This past year has seen so many incredible moments,” the MTV Movie Award winner began. “Things I dreamed of but never thought possible.”
‘That’s what I’ve learned so far. Manifestation is real, presence is most important, hard work pays off, authenticity requires getting to know yourself and that takes time, presence for others goes a long way, when life surprises you and it gets tough, learn your lesson and rise above! 38 Life is wonderful ☀️’
The High School Musical star celebrated the big day in New York with her husband, Christopher French, 41, and their two-year-old daughter, Jupiter.
The couple has been married since 2014.
Tisdale appeared 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.
