Julie Brown sues I’m a Celebrity producers over bites, scars from leeches.
Almost two years after I’m a Celebrity–Get Me Out of Here aired on ABC–and flopped, big time–one of its participants is suing producers. Former MTV VJ Downtown Julie Brown “claims she suffered numerous bites and scarring from leeches, despite being told by the show’s staff that the blood-sucking creatures posed no harm,” according to Celebrity Justice. “She’s suing for $500,000 dollars in damages.”
