A former Moonlite BunnyRanch prostitute who accused Vince Neil of assaulting her is suing the former Motley Crue frontman, the brothel and its owner.
The lawsuit, filed last week, seeks unspecified damages of at least $20,000 for lost wages and other costs stemming from the July 10, 2003, incident.
Neil, who has a home in Las Vegas, pleaded no contest earlier this month to misdemeanor battery in the incident. He was fined $1,000 and ordered to complete anger management classes.
Andrea “TrixXxie Blue” Terry claims in her lawsuit that Neil grabbed her by the neck, pushed her against a window, and pulled her to the floor after she and another prostitute refused to have sex with him until he paid $4,000 for each woman.
The lawsuit claims brothel owner Dennis Hof was negligent because he didn’t call police and because the panic button in her room wasn’t working.
Hof told the Las Vegas Sun he believes Terry made up the story. Neil was at the brothel in the tiny community of Mound House at Hof’s request. He was signing autographs a day after he performed with Poison during a concert in Reno.
Hof said Terry should have known Neil would not have to pay for her services.
“We don’t charge celebrities, we pay the girls ourselves,” Hof said.
