Beverly Johnson's Ex Slaps Her with $5 Million Defamation Lawsuit
The legal battling between supermodel Beverly Johnson and ex Mark Burk is getting stranger and stranger.
Beverly has been slapped with a civil lawsuit for defamation of character and infliction of emotional distress.
The civil suit is in response to a suit filed by the model claiming he threatened to kill her and her pets. (She claims he also threatened to slit his own throat, too.)
Documents filed in Riverside, Calif. last month have Burk claiming the allegations tarnished his character and impacted his career as a professional golf player. He is asking for payment of legal fees in addition to damages in the amount of $5 million.
Last March, Mark alleged that Beverly pulled a gun on him after she agreed to return his golf clubs. According to Mark, Beverly suggested they meet on a California highway. When he showed up, Mark said Beverly pulled a gun and ordered him into the backseat of her car where she proceeded to tell him how he's ruining her career and good name.
Mark has said Beverly threw him out of the house they shared for more than two years, used make-up to fake injuries then used those doctored photos as evidence to get a restraining order against him.
It's going down over there!
