Things have gotten very serious, very quickly for South African TV personality and comedian Trevor Noah as he has recently sued a doctor who messed up a medical procedure.
Noah’s lawyer Justin Blitz filed a lawsuit on 29 November against the star’s orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Riley Williams III, as well as the hospital where the procedure took place, which states that the comedian suffered some “serious personal injury” which appears to be “permanent, severe and grievous”.
The lawsuit also claims that Williams III failed to inform the TV personality of the risks associated with the surgery, as well as prescribe the necessary medication that Trevor needed post-surgery.
The lawsuit reads as follows: “A reasonably prudent person in the position of the plaintiff would have refused the treatment rendered, had they been so informed of the risks, hazards, and alternatives to the treatment rendered.”
Trevor has allegedly been left sick, sore and disabled from the medical procedure, and his lawyers said they would not comment further on the matter.
The Daily Show host recently had a comedy show in Los Angeles as part of his Back to Abnormality Tour, where he successfully killed the show in front of a massive crowd.
“Los Angeles, thank you to everyone that came out to The Forum last night!! Until next time,” said the comedian.
Noah also announced at the beginning of the month that he will be the host for the next Grammy Awards, which will take place on 31 January 2020.
“Excited to be back hosting the Grammys this year! Tune in Monday, Jan 31st, on CBSTV,” announced the star.
