“The Bachelor” has filed a second lawsuit in two years against Stephen Carbone who is the supplier of the information on the site RealitySteve.com. The documents were filed on Dec. 21 according to E! News on Jan. 3.
The documents that were files claim that Carbone breached a previous settlement agreement by unlawfully obtaining information about the new season 17 which is set to air on Monday.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit are NZK Productions and Horizon Alternative Television. They claim that Carbone used confidential information to make a for-profit website and obtained some of his information by getting it from cast and crew members that were under contract to not give that information out.
Carbone denies getting this information from anyone who was under contract and even made a statement on his website in response to the lawsuit:
"I continue to spoil their show every season, they're pissed about it, so this is how they respond. What's funny in all this is, by suing me, they're admitting that my spoilers are correct. Do you honestly think if I gave away the wrong ending, and wrong eliminations, and wrong details about the dates they would sue me? Of course not."
“The Bachelor” producers are asking for $75,000 in damages from Stephen Carbone for alleged intentional interference with contractual relations. They are also asking for $10,000 for a violation of the settlement they had with Carbone. What do you think? Do you think they are just mad because he was able to find spoilers or did Carbone go against the rules by getting them?
