CelebnMusic247.com reports that Darryl Wilkins is suing Duff and Williams after the Disney star’s rant about Wilkins on Instagram got picked up on Wendy’s show.
According to court documents, obtained by The Blast, the actress had a run-in with the man in a public park and filmed it for Instagram.
In the suit, Wilkins claims in February 2020, he was in a public park and was testing out his new camera. Hilary, who posted the altercation on her Instagram, claims the man was taking pictures of her children and she was not happy about it.
Wilkins claims Hilary Duff and Wendy Williams allegedly posted disparaging comments on social media and circulated comments on various television appearances, re-posting the video confrontation. Wilkins claims slander against the actress for allegedly accusing him of “reprehensible and despicable conduct including by innuendo that he was a child predator.” He’s targeting Wendy Williams for allegedly repeating the defamatory statements on her TV show.
Wilkins goes on in his complaint claiming the alleged words uttered were “false statements because Wilkins is not a pedophile or child predator”
[The statements are] false statements because Wilkins is not a pedophile or child predator and was attempting to take photographs as a photographer and not as a paparazzi or stalker or with mal intent or evil wrongdoing.
