Gwyneth Paltrow admits she initially feared skiing conflict was sexual assault
Park City, Utah (KTVX) — In a non-traditional twist, Gwyneth Paltrow was called to the stands this afternoon by opponents of the Deer Valley Ski Resort crash involving Dr. Terry Sanderson.
Sanderson’s attorney spent most of the first-hand investigation recreating the crash, but Paltrow repeatedly testified that Sanderson was to blame.
Paltrow testified that when she was down-skiing with her children, Apple and Moses, a man slipped her skis from behind, and his skis slipped between her and her feet separated. He “pushed” his own body onto her, causing her to “moan” seconds later before the two fell to the ground.
Paltrow said in court that at first she thought she was in the middle of a sexual assault because of the confusion at that moment.
Sanderson’s attorney, Christine Van Orman, asked why she thought it was a sexual assault.
“Was he gridding or ramming?” asked Van Orman.
Paltrow said she did not accuse Sanderson of sexual assault, but initially thought it was a possibility due to the unexpected turn of events in the conflict. However, the circumstances she said froze her before they hit the ground, causing Paltrow to fall on top of Sanderson.
Van Orman tried to recreate the moment of the crash. She initially asked if Paltrow could do the replay, but the judge denied the request.
Paltrow said she’s just under 5 feet 10 inches tall, while Sanderson, who was actually in court Friday, is closer to 5 feet 5 inches tall. When the two collapsed, Paltrow said, “I’m almost spooning them.”
After getting up off the ground, Paltrow testified that he started yelling at Sanderson.
Van Orman asked Paltrow if she had looked into Sanderson, but she said no.
“The thing to keep in mind is that when you’re the victim of an accident, your psychology doesn’t think about the perpetrator,” Paltrow said.
Paltrow testified that she hadn’t left to check on Sanderson, saying that one of her children’s ski instructors helped Sanderson and checked on him. He testified that he said Paltrow said ski instructor Eric Christiansen would fill out a report on the incident and provide Paltrow’s information to Sanderson, after which Paltrow finished her run and had lunch with her family. Told.
Paltrow testified that her knees felt “overstretched” and her back hurt from the crash, and she got a massage after lunch but did not see a doctor.
However, Van Orman asked Paltrow if she was “aware of common decency” in checking on Sanderson, who suffered four broken ribs and a concussion. He acknowledged that he did not perform any formal paperwork or contact Sanderson to see how he was doing.
Van Orman referred to Paltrow’s counterclaim seeking $1 in damages against Sanderson in the final move of the direct review. However, Van Orman said Paltrow was in fact also seeking attorneys’ fees, and said the $1 claim was a “misunderstanding”. said.
Paltrow also testified that she didn’t scream, despite what other witnesses said. I had no memory of it.
Paltrow also said eyewitness Craig Ramone was not telling the truth when he testified about what he saw in the crash. According to her, Ramone could not tell the skier apart because he was 40 feet away and had color blindness, she felt.
She also refuted Ramone’s claim that Sanderson was “sober” after the crash.
Paltrow also mentioned that Ramone referred to her companion at the time as a “Coldplay man” and referred to Paltrow’s first husband, Chris Martin. Martin is the band’s lead singer and musician. cold playThe two divorced in 2016. Paltrow was actually at the resort with her then-boyfriend Brad Falchuk. Falchuk is now Paltrow’s husband.
