Gwyneth Paltrow’s son says he heard his mother curse and yell at the man who sued her over a 2016 skiing accident.
Moses Martin, who was nine when the crash occurred, said he “saw” his mother on the ground and “a person behind her who had crashed.”
His statement, read in the Utah court by Ms. Paltrow’s legal team, said: “When I skied by I heard my mom yelling at the boy. She was saying something like ‘what the heck did you just meet me.'” .
Terry Sanderson, a 76-year-old retired optometrist, is sued the Oscar-winning actress for $300,000 (£244,000) for allegedly crashing into him on a Utah ski slope in 2016.
Ms. Paltrow denies the charge and is suing for the nominal amount of one dollar, saying Mr. Sanderson hit her.
A deposition from Mrs Paltrow’s eldest daughter, Apple Martin, was also read to the court.
Apple said her mother told her what happened after the crash: “I noticed it [my mother] he looked a little shocked, and I asked what happened and she said ‘this asshole ran at me, went right in my back'”.
Apple added: “He was in a state of shock and then decided he wasn’t going to ski for the rest of the day which he never does, he always stays on track, but he was in shock and a little sore.”
He continued: ‘I’ve never seen her shaken like that and she was very clearly visibly upset and in some sort of pain…she was in some pain and I remember that’s why she went to the spa to get a massage.
“I remember her being very frantic. She was in a state of shock, she was very upset.”
The case continues.
