Sacha Baron Cohen keeps his cool as he’s slapped with $95m lawsuit
SACHA BARON COHEN didn’t show it on the GQ awards red carpet last night but he is being sued for $95million (£74million).
The 46-year-old attended the bash with actress wife Isla Fisher, 42, after controversial Alabama judge Roy Moore announced he was suing the comedian for going undercover and tricking him on TV show Who Is America?
In a segment of the Channel 4 parody programme, Baron Cohen pretended to be an Israeli anti-terrorism expert. During the interview, he waved a ‘paedophile detector’ device over Moore, which repeatedly went off.
Moore, who narrowly lost a US Senate election race last year following underage sexual assault claims, said he was suing Baron Cohen for defamation, fraud and inflicting ‘emotional distress’.
The 71-year-old has denied all sexual assault allegations.
Lawyers for Baron Cohen did not respond to reports about the lawsuit last night.
