To say Shaun White is famous for his escapades in the world of snowboarding and skateboarding is a bit of an understatement. Over the course of his career, the man commonly known as “The Flying Tomato” has won more X Games medals than you’ve had hot dinners. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, White’s also won two Olympic halfpipe golds (Turin ’06, Vancouver ’10).
Back in 2008, the guitar-playing White found time between his action sports pursuits to start a band called Bad Things with drummer Lena Zawaideh. But in a story published by trashy gossip website TMZ, it would seem the relationships in Bad Things have taken a bad turn – with Lena reportedly suing White for a minimum of $42,000 in back payments (as well as additional compensation for punitive damages).
Then again, it’s worth keeping in mind, that this is the same TMZ website that once tried to stir up a non-existent beef between Tony Hawk and his son Riley. Taking that into consideration, we’d recommend everyone keeps an open mind at this time.
