Don’t mess with an Osteen. That’s the lesson for one Continental Airlines flight attendant who was allegedly assaulted by Victoria Osteen on a flight in 2005.
In a civil lawsuit that is now set to go to before a jury, Sharon Brown claims that Victoria – wife of mega pastor Joel Osteen – became enraged over a stain on her first-class seat and subsequently “threw her against a bathroom door and elbowed her in the left breast.” Osteen was fined $3,000 by the Federal Aviation Administration for “interfering with a crew member.”
Brown is seeking an apology from Osteen and punitive damages amounting to 10% of Victoria Osteen’s net worth, which last time anyone checked was estimated at roughly seventy bajillion dollars.
Yeah, the lawsuit is frivolous. But something must have happened if the Feds went so far as to fine Osteen.
Hopefully Victoria will bring a book on her next flight.
