AceShowbiz - Shonda Rhimes is facing a lawsuit from a top physician after tripping and falling on the cracked pavement outside the TV mogul's Los Angeles home.
Dr. Kuo Chao claims he was jogging past the Grey's Anatomy and Scandal creator's Hancock Park property in June, 2017, when he took a tumble on the damaged sidewalk.
In legal papers obtained by TMZ.com, Chao alleges he suffered serious injuries, including a broken wrist and damaged cartilage, while also losing range of motion and function in his wrist and arm.
He explains his recovery took months, preventing him from resuming his career as an interventional neuroradiologist, treating stroke and aneurysm patients, while his ability to work is still impacted as a result of the injuries.
Chao insists Rhimes is partly responsible for ensuring the sidewalk outside her home is fixed, and is demanding unspecified damages. The lawsuit also names authorities for the City of Los Angeles as defendants.
Rhimes has yet to comment on the legal action.
