Star files lawsuit against woman who leaked sex tape


Verne Troyer is suing ex girlfriend Ranae Shrider for battery and emotional distress.

The actor, who played ‘Mini-Me’ in Austin Powers, has accused her of beating him when he tried to break up with her.

‘When you pick up a 2’8″ human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts,’ lawyer Ed McPherson tells TMZ.

Verne, 39, also claims Ranae violated his privacy when she leaked a sex tape of them to a US website.

He is said to be seeking at least £10million in damages.

It is thought other people will be sued, including a lawyer who allegedly tried to broker a deal for the sale of the sex tape.
