The woman whose face ended up on be-on-the-lookout posters on the campus of the University of Miami last year after a high-profile doctor at the school accused her of stalking him has sued the doctor for defamation, according to Miami-Dade County court records.
Lisa Morse, a former patient of Dr. Bruno Gallo, says in her court filing that Gallo’s “vicious, defamatory, baseless and untrue attacks” were designed to damage and destroy her.
Because of his complaints about her to Miami Police and campus cops, photos of Morse, her car and personal information, including her address, ended up on posters circulating among UM officials. That, according to the paperwork, “severely limited her ability to earn a living” as an occupational therapist.
According to records, Gallo is believed to have been dating Morse despite her patient status and the fact he is married. Morse showed up in Gallo’s office at the school after he broke up with her and refused to treat her back problems.

Gallo also filed a complaint with Miami PD that included claims that someone, purportedly Morse, scratched the words “no more I love yous” into his car. Morse was never charged with any wrongdoing pertaining to her relationship with Gallo.
Earlier this year, Gallo, a brain surgeon, left the university after nurses complained to the school that they could hear him “through paper-thin walls” having sex in his office. Gallo, who couldn’t be contacted, has yet to file a response to the suit.
Miami Beach rapper Lil Wayne was lit up in court by a Toronto special effects company that claims the diminutive singer has yet to pay for the pyrotechnics on his 2013 tour.
Pyrotek Special Effects claims the rapper owes $85,964.83, mostly in fireworks used on stage in places like Birmingham, Alabama, and Columbia, South Carolina.
The singer of Got Money has yet to be served the lawsuit, and his publicist didn’t respond to requests for comment. The lawsuit, filed in a Miami court, showed Weezy used enough firepower to light up the Fourth of July, including 200 tracer comets, 92 silver gerbs, 62 white flashes with a bang, 36 propane tanks, and 30 pounds of exploding powder.
It was just a joke!
That’s what The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville asserted Monday in her response to a lawsuit filed in Miami by The Real Housewives of Miami model Joanna Krupa.
The slander action was filed after Glanville, who once was married to former Third Watch heartthrob Eddie Cibrian, said on RHOBH that Krupa slept with the then-married Los Angeles playboy Mohamed Hadid. Glanville also said she was told Krupa has a personal hygiene problem.
Krupa wants a jury trial and damages, but Glanville said in her June 22 response that she didn’t mean it.
“It was an obvious attempt by Glanville to be nothing more than humorous ... and [Glanville] denies this was a statement about any actual fact about Joanna Krupa,” the 19-page response reads.

Miami Beach music producer Scott Storch, who once boasted a $10 million mansion and $3 million pinkie ring after creating hits like Justin Timberlake’s Cry me a River, has $100 cash to his name.
At least, that’s what the bankruptcy papers he filed in federal court say, adding that Storch, 41, has $3,500 in assets, including clothes and a watch.
