The Bold and the Beautiful’s Hunter Tylor Reportedly Loses Lawsuit; Slammed with $885,000 Judgement!

The Bold and The Beautiful star Hunter Tylo was reportedly ordered by a Las Vegas judge to pay $885,000 to a psychotherapist who Tylo filed suit against, according to On Point

According to the report, licensed clinical social worker Shanna Downing was hired to treat Tylo’s children while she was in the process of divorcing former All My Children and The Young and the Restless alum Michael Tylo. Downing claims Tylo slapped a suit against her after she refused to testify for the actress in her divorce proceedings.

According to the ruling by Clark County District Court Judge Timothy C. Williams:

[Tylo] can produce no evidence that Downing was negligent in any respect in her care and treatment of any member of the Tylo family.
Williams also claims Tylo allegedly "attempted to suborn perjury from Downing" during her divorce case. Downing was reportedly awarded $700,000 in damages, $158,104 in legal fees, and $26,879 in special damages.
In 2006, Tylo sued Downing claiming the therapist violated her professional ethics when she treated the Tylo family. Two years later, the actress filed a wrongful death suit against Downing who treated her son Michael before he died in 2007.

    My sympathies to Ms. Tylo. I hope that she is able to make her way through these difficulties. Hopefully, she has liability insurance that will help with the burden of this judgment.

    Given the pain of a divorce and horror she suffered with the death of her teen-aged son, Tylo has endured more than many of us. I hope that she is able to recover and move on.

    Tylo is a talented actress, who has brought much entertainment to fans for over 20 years.

    Finally, I trust that Ms. Downing, the therapist who sued Tylo, will find her win satisfactory and will find her reputation fully repaired, allowing her to move on with her life and career.

    I wonder if all her personal problems have taken a toll on her acting, which has been really off for some time now. The last time I enjoyed her was when Taylor started drinking again after the egg mix-up, but nowadays Taylor comes across as a lifeless, frozen-faced zombie.

    Hunter Tylo has always been a very uneven performer. She has had her moments, but the last few years she’s been just bad. I don’t know if she’s phoning it in or if she’s completely lost the ability to emote due to her facial procedures, but it’s become painful and very distracting to watch.

    Poor HT. Don’t care about law suit and all the crap, but between her son dying and her daughter having cancer as infant and losing an eye, that would be enough to push any normal person over the edge. Hang in there, Hunter.
