According to documents obtained by TMZ, Lena Zawaideh—the former drummer in Shaun White's band Bad Things—has sued the Olympic and X-Games snowboarder, claiming years of sexual harassment. The suit claims that White ran the band "like a tyrant," demanding that she cut her hair against her wishes and forcing her to wear more revealing clothing than she was comfortable with. There are also some pretty bizarre and disturbing allegations involving dick pics, sex on a bear, and a porn named "Church of Fudge," which I'm just going to go ahead and quote here, so we can move on.

Among the allegations, Zawaideh claims White sent her sexually explicit and graphic images of "engorged and erect penises" and forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos "including videos sexualizing human fecal matter."

One of the videos Zawaideh claims she was forced to watch was a couple killing a bear and then having sex on top of it.

She also claims White forced her to watch "Church of Fudge" -- a hardcore porn "involving a priest, a nun and fecal matter."

At one point, Zawaideh claims White stuck his hands down his pants, approached Zawaideh, and then "stuck his hands in her face trying to make her smell them."

OK.

Now.

Included in the TMZ story are screen captures of purported conversations Zawaideh had with White that include an extremely passive aggressive discussion about getting her hair cut, as well as the engorged penis.

Zawaideh, who was fired at the end of a 2014 tour, is suing for payment she says is owed for her work in the band, as well as damages related to the sexual harassment.
