Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony are being sued by a flight attendant who says their “personal protection dog” attacked her onboard a private Gulfstream IV jet in 2006.
In documents filed with the Brooklyn Federal Court in New York, flight attendant Lisa Wilson says German Shepherd Dog Floyd “growled and lunged at her,” and “head-butted her leg, and she fell and seriously injured her back.”
Wilson’s lawyers say Wilson was carrying silverware, and that Anthony and Lopez knew that sharp objects tended to set off Floyd.
Anthony also allegedly instructed Wilson “not to make eye contact with the dog and to call Floyd by his name if she needed to pass,” further proof, Wilson’s lawyers say, that the couple knew the dog was dangerous.
Veterinarian Karen Overall, DVM, submitted an eight-page report supporting Wilson’s lawsuit.
“It is clear to me that Floyd … behaved inappropriately, aggressively and in a manner that consistently endangered humans,” she said.
