New details emerge in Shaun White sexual harassment lawsuit

On Tuesday, new information was reported regarding the ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit against snowboarder Shaun White that was filed by his former bandmate.

In May, it was reported that Lena Zawaideh, a drummer who helped form the band Bad Things in 2008 with White, was suing the snowboarding icon for allegedly sexually harassing her during her time with the band, which ended when she was fired following a 2014 tour.

At the time of the lawsuit, TMZ reported that Zawaideh claimed White was an overly controlling and demanding bandmate.

On Tuesday, TMZ Sports claimed to have obtained court documents from the lawsuit that enumerated some of the graphic details of bad behavior Zawaideh said she was subjected to during her time with the band.

The publication also published snapshots of text messages Zawaideh claims to have exchanged with White, which appear to show White asking Zawaideh to change her manner of dress and cut her hair shorter as well as images that were sexually explicit in nature.

In response to the newly published court documents, White’s attorney, Kerry Garvis Wright, released a statement to TMZ Sports on White’s behalf.

“Many years ago, I exchanged texts with a friend who is now using them to craft a bogus lawsuit,” White said through his lawyer, claims TMZ.

“There is absolutely no coincidence to the timing of her claims, and we will defend them vigorously in court.”

This newest turn in the lawsuit is not the only thing keeping White in the spotlight recently. The two-time Olympic gold medalist has been very present on NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics, and over the weekend he officially announced his intention to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
