The woman who once filed a paternity suit against comedian Chris Rock that never held up in court has lodged another civil action. This charges the 44-year-old funnyman with first raping her, having her hounded by a private investigator, and then dissing her on Howard Stern's radio show.
Monika Zsibrita, with whom Rock admits having a couple dinner dates – and ultimately sex – calls Rock a “monster” and says that he ruined her life.
"My side has never been out," she said outside the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Rock and Zsibrita met at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills about a decade ago, during the time Rock says he was estranged from his wife. She soon announced that she was pregnant and that Rock was the father, and filed a paternity suit. Two DNA tests proved that Rock was not the father.
"Someone who was not pregnant with my child claimed to be pregnant with my child and requested large sums of money for this," he testified at the time, noting that he had hired private eye Anthony Pellicano because he thought Zsibrita was flimflamming him.
In the latest suit, filed in August and unsealed Thursday at the request of Zsibrita, the 36-year-old, married, stay-at-home mom says that she is merely trying to clear her good name. She said that she never asked for money from Rock, but that he gave her several checks totaling less than $18,000. She said she is not a gold-digger: "I am not a poor girl. I don't need to date people for money."
In addition to Rock, she names as defendants Beverly Hills and three police supervisors. The monetary damages she is seeking is unclear.
