Former Disney Channel and movie star Ashley Tisdale has been accused of causing a car crash and has even been hit with a lawsuit for the same.

Often, we at Disney Fanatic report on some of the happiest Disney news there is—from Indiana Jones finding massive success despite the box office fiasco to wholesome interactions at a Disney theme park (be that Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida or Disneyland Resort in Southern California), or even former Disney star Miley Cyrus making peace with her past—however, sometimes we have less than savory news to report as well. For example, Camp Rock star and Jonas Brothers singer, Joe Jonas has filed for divorce from his wife, Sophie Turner, after four years of divorce.

Now, there’s some other difficult news.

Per documents obtained by TMZ, a lawyer representing Gonzales asserts that his client had been waiting at a light to turn left when Tisdale allegedly changed lanes and hit her car.

Were this not enough, Gonzales’ lawyer, Michael R. Parker, told TMZ  that Tisdale “called [his client] names” and “made a big fuss about the situation.”

Of course, Tisdale’s representatives have challenged the claim and argued that “There was no aggressiveness or words exchanged from Ashley following the crash.”
