Twilight star sues trailer company for distress


Taylor Lautner is suing a trailer company for “emotional distress” after they failed to deliver a vehicle that he was planning to use while filming for his new movie.

The Twilight star planned to buy a customised 2006 Country Coach Recreational Vehicle (RV) for $300,000 to use while filming the new movie Abduction, but has launched legal action over his “annoyance” that the vehicle wasn’t delivered on time.

The actor filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday against McMahon’s RV after the dealership failed to have the vehicle delivered by the agreed date of June 21.

Taylor, 18, has claimed breach of contract and fraud and is demanding unspecified damages from the company.

The hunky star recently admitted despite his role as werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight Saga propelling him to stardom, he is still down-to-earth enough to help out with domestic chores around the home.

He said: "I help out with the lawn, garbage, dishes. When I come back, I have extra mowing to do. It's very important to me. I describe it as I live two different lives. I have this life and do what I love to do, but I also have the same exact life as before and nothing has changed."
