CHICAGO: Schyler Truesdell, a doorman for Epic Restaurant in Chicago, could not have imagined that a polite greeting would have ended in a lawsuit. But it did when Plaintiff Kelli Belpedio claimed the greeting caused her breast implant to collapse. The complaint alleges that when the doorman squeezed her against his body, she felt a pain in the right side of her chest and a pressure against her right arm. When she awoke the next day, the breast had deflated. Truesdell is described in the lawsuit as “a former college football offensive linemen who weighed approximately 300 pounds.”
Belpedio believes it was Truesdell’s hug that caused the breast implant to lose its busty appeal. What’s a burst breast worth? $50,000 in damages.
