Bruised: Halle Berry Slapped With Lawsuit By Former UFC Fighter



Halle Berry is getting dragged into the legal ring by a former UFC fighter.

According to TMZ, Cat Zingano is suing the Oscar winning actress, claiming she offered her a role in her upcoming film Bruised but was ultimately snubbed.

Per the lawsuit, Cat claims she met with Berry back in July 2019, and Berry told her she was perfect for the project. Cat claims Berry then told her to keep her schedule clear because film production was on the horizon.

Shortly after, Cat says she was offered a UFC fight but ultimately turned it down after Berry told her there would be liability concerns from the movie’s insurer.

Unfortunately Cat says after turning down the fight the UFC then released her from her contract. According to the suit, Cat claims when she told Berry she’d been let go, Berry said she could no longer be involved in the movie because she was no longer fighting in the UFC.

She says eventually Berry cut off all communications with her. She’s suing for damages, claiming she relied on Berry’s promise and ended up getting screwed.

Reps for Berry have not released a statement regarding the lawsuit.

The 54-year-old recently opened up to Entertainment Weekly about directing and starring in the film.

“I thought it was largely enough for one person to do, to take on this challenge of fighting and learning all these martial arts and playing that role. So I didn’t think I would be directing myself in my debut, ever…Initially, I think it did sound crazy to everybody.”

Berry, who plays MMA fighter Jackie Justice, also revealed she broke two ribs on the first day of filming but refused to halt production.

Bruised premieres Nov. 24 on Netflix.
