Australian singer and actress Sophie Monk is reportedly suing the driver allegedly responsible for a 2010 car crash that left her temporarily in a wheelchair.

Monk, once a member of pop group Bardot, has filed papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming she was left with "severe injuries" when a Ford Explorer collided with the Prius she was riding in, according to TMZ.com.

The website says Monk is suing the driver of the Ford, Delvinder Sing Bains, alleging she was unable to work after the the crash and also faced hefty medical bills.

Days after the crash Monk was spotted being rolled around in a wheelchair with her foot wrapped in bandages.

It's believed Monk is suing for unspecified damages - totalling at least $US25,000 ($24,237).

    • SAW, I hope someone shows as much compassion for you some day as you are showing here. Has it occurred to you that she might have accident-related expenses to cover? Or that if she's lost income and amenity from being bashed into by some bloke, she has the same rights as you or I would have to seek recompense? Her celebrity, or lack thereof, what she does for a living and what you may think of her personally have nothing to do with her right to seek legal redress.

    • $24,000 for someone living the high life? If she was struggling for money you think she would be after a lot more than that.

      The surgery, why the surgery.

  • She should consider suing her makeup artist for the job done in this photo too - what is happening with her lips and cheeks?

    • @snappy dragon... makeup artist? You mean her plastic surgeon surely. The lips and filler are out of control! Any makeup on a face that swollen looks wrong!
