LARDY COLIN SUED OVER SEX PEST CLAIMS: COLIN FARRELL; ItOs Been a Rough Time for Colin Farrell I His Weight Has Ballooned and Now heOs Being Accused of Sexual Harrassment


HeOs no stranger to controversy, but hellraiser Colin FarrellOs got a lot on his plate right now. Just days after having to apply for an injunction to prevent an ex, Nicole Narain (a Playboy Playmate) distributing a tape of the pair having sex on the internet, the star is being sued for sexual harrassment by an American woman who claims heOs been bombarding her with filthy texts I even though Colin and a US judge say theyOve never met.

Dessarae Bradford, 30, claims the star, 29, sent her more than 500 sleazy texts from his mobile phone, ranging from suggestive to downright explicit. The messages are said to include a request to Ocall me Big Daddy while IOm doinO yaO, and promised sheOd be Owalking like John Wayne 4 a weekO.

Dessarae claims Colin also bragged about hanging out in a hot tub with two porn stars and sent messages too Otop shelfO to be repeated.

Dessarae says she first encountered the Irish actor when she worked as a phone sex operator. Despite the fact it was her job, she claims the Alexander star Oused her for phone sex and dumped herO. OHe left me feeling cheap and used, like a piece of rubbish he could just toss aside when heOd had his fun,O she says.

Dessarae originally took her case to the Santa Monica small claims court, but it was thrown out after the judge was convinced the pair had never met.

A friend of the star says, OColin has no idea why this lady would accuse him of these things. Unfortunately lots of stars are vulnerable to these type of claims, even when they have no grounds.O

Dessarae also failed a TV showOs lie detector test, which she claimed was rigged. However, she says she has new evidence, including a birthday card she claims Colin sent to her, and refiled her suit in the Los Angeles Superior Court last month.
