Skip to comments.Jesse Ventura wants court to substitute Chris Kyle’s widow in defamation lawsuit
Posted on 06/18/2013 7:19:04 AM PDT by Texican72
An ongoing legal battle between wrestler-turned-governor Jesse Ventura and American Sniper Chris Kyle over an incident in Kyles best-selling autobiography did not end with the Navy SEALs death in February. Now, the man formerly known as The Body wants to take on Kyles widow Taya, according to documents filed in federal court in Minnesota in recent weeks.
Their attorneys were in federal court just yesterday, pleading their respective cases to a judge who will have to decide if Taya is now responsible for a tale told in American Sniper about a bar fight Chris had gotten into with a man identified only as Scruff Face, who Kyle later acknowledged was Ventura. The story only takes up a couple of pages, but Ventura insists it never happened: He says he never bad-mouthed President George W. Bush and the war in Iraq, never said the SEALs deserve to lose a few, and never got laid
out by Chris Kyle.

Ventura is an arrogant and obnoxious pig.
MEGA DITTOS TO THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want to see him run for President. I dare him. I double dare him.
If this is true, Ventura is a dick.
true or not...he’s still a d*ck!
Yeah, but this is a new level of dickness.
If what is true? That he’s sued Chris Kyle? That he’s now trying to sue his widow?
Those are facts.
The only real question is whether Jesse said the things Chris alleged and whether Chris decked jesse.
I’d believe Chris Kyle before Jesse any day of the week.
Well, he’s 61, not skinny, and most likely abused steroids and other drugs so maybe he’ll just...
Big man picking on a girl.
JV....proving again how pathetic an Attention Demanding Disorder victim can be. Shame on you, Jessie. Hopefully, you have hit bottom.
Whether or not it is true, Ventura is a dick.
Every once in a while, he comes onto the Mike Trivisanno show here in Cleveland. They electronically alter his voice, and he calls himself “Mr. Blue,” but there’s no doubt it’s him.
And now that a second Kyle book is coming out I guess Jesse smells more money in the water. I posted on his facebook page a week or so ago that going after Kyle’s wife was a real good 2016 presidential campaign kickoff move. Everyone should give Jesse a post
Should't it be dickedness?
“Ventura is an arrogant and obnoxious pig.”
“douchebag” was the term that first sprang to mind for me.
However, all such pejoratives (and many more) would be accurate in his case.
Also, reminds me of the Westboro Baptist “Church” deciding to “target” the little 5-yr old girl who set up a lemonade stand across the street from their “church”.
Hey Ventura, STFU and GO AWAY....... No ones cares about you any more. You already had more then your 15 minutes...
I’m not taking any side or saying I support ventures action but I have always had doubts about the bar fight story. It just never made logical sense to me. Ventura is a celebrity and public figure the story seems highly unlikely.
I want ventura to meet up with some of Kyle’s buddies and I want them to work their magic on him until he is no more.
At least a Douchebag has a useful purpose, I don’t think that “the Douchebag” does.
There was no fight. Kyle knocked Ventura's sorry ass to the floor.
Ventura makes a pompous ass out of himself in public on a regular basis, so someone decking him finally seemed completely logical to me.
I’ve been trying to figure out what ventura’s case would consist of. Witnesses? The bar was full of Navy SEALs and family members. Ventura has continually claimed, falsely, that he was on a SEAL, rather than a UDT, team. And, believe me, SEALs know the difference, so they would likely have a built-in grudge against ventura. It seems likely that, if the case were to go to court, he’d get his ass kicked a second time.
Maybe he’s just hoping for a settlement. Any clues?
Just attempting to recycle his fading 15 minutes of fame in a lowlife fashion. He’s putting on a WWF style show at the expense of Chris Kyle’s widow. Ventura is scum.
a walking one, with ears.
This is a typical lawsuit move: When the target dies you target the estate. He isn’t targeting the widow. However, he should be a bigger man and let this go for the sake of the widow. He could have won all kinds of points by simply stating that he will drop the suit to benefit the widow. He could even reiterate that he stands by his statements that he never met Chris and still gotten some points in.
Jesse Ventura is a douchebag.
That is all....
