My 600-Lb Life fans heard that six people from the show bring lawsuits against the production company for the TLC show. Megalomedia faces those from the family of deceased L.B Bonner, David Bolton, and Dottie Perkins. Plus, others include Gina Krasely, Maja Radanavoc, and Jeanne Covey. Now, Megalomedia rejects the basis of David Bolton’s claims.
My 600-Lb Life – David Bolton lost weight on the show
TV Shows Ace reported that David and his brother Benji jointed the show. David lost weight and fans felt happy about his successful outcome. Nevertheless, he ended up far from happy with the production team. We noted that he felt unhappy about the way the show seemed rather more concerned about ratings than the mental well-being of the people on the show. In fact, he got depressed. Plus, he thought it wrong that he ended up spending his own money on medical bills. He thought that those would be covered.
Much like the other My 600-Lb Life stars who also sue the company, he felt they staged a lot of the drama. Obviously, that’s for the ratings. It put then under stress, he noted. But, he could end up losing more than he already lost, if his lawsuit fails.
After all, Megalomedia vowed to take a very strong stance on this. They noted that they intend to get those people who lose their cases to pay for costs, “sanctions,” and “attorney fees.” Nevertheless, David’s attorney seems confident they have cases of merit.
David’s claims not justified says Megalomedia
Starcasm followed the story of these claims since the beginning. They covered David’s claims and obtained documents about Megalomedia’s response. They came from Megalomedia’s attorney Charles L. Babcock. The outlet notes, he “dismissed David Bolton’s claims of negligence.” In fact, they countered with the argument that David’s “injuries, if any…were caused by [his] own negligent conduct.”‘
Plus, the document talks about the claim that someone told him medical costs would be paid. They noted that they only stand by written contracts, not verbal things. Plus, they point out his NDA. The outlet notes that the My 600-Lb Life cast’s attorney takes particular issue with those NDA’s which seem extremely restrictive. He wants them to completely change the way they take care of the people on the show or stop production.
Megalomedia made it clear from the start they’d pay hardball with these claims, and now it looks like they mean what they said. What do you think? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
