A former associate of Garth Brooks is accusing him of being a colossal douche bag. Producer Lisa Sanderson is suing the country crooner for $425,000 in back pay and punitive damages, stemming from the fact that he is a “paranoid, angry, deceitful and vindictive man who would turn against those closest to him on a dime.”

Hey now, if that was grounds for a lawsuit then Donald Trump would never leave the courtroom. According to TMZ, Sanderson says Brooks “screwed her in the salary, bonus and profits department, allegedly lying to her about the pot of gold she'd get if she stuck around.”

Sanderson also says Brooks regularly rejected lucrative acting roles because he didn’t want to play second fiddle to anyone, and that he even turned down the role of a villain in “Twister” because he didn’t want to be outshined by a tornado.

Actually, his faded career does have something in common with a cyclone: a giant sucking sound.
