Derek Connolly, a Hollywood screenwriter who worked on the new Star Wars and Jurassic World, is suing a Tinder date after claiming she attempted to blackmail him.
Connolly, who has worked on the new Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and King Kong movies, has filed a lawsuit against Ada Hui, a woman who he alleges stalked him and invaded his privacy.
According to the TMZ report, Connolly claims the pair met on dating app Tinder in May 2016 before going enduring a bad breakup.
Derek Connolly, whose credits include the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX as well as Jurassic World and Kong: Skull Island, met a woman named Ada Hui last May on the dating app. They dated until late last month, and the breakup was super bad.
He says she exploded in a fit of rage, posting their text messages on Instagram and threatening to damage his career. Connolly says Hui even insinuated he was in harm’s way. Then it got really ugly. Connolly says she told him to drop off her stuff by a certain time, or else it would be Entourage S7 E7, a reference to Season 7 Episode 7 titled “Tequila and Coke,” in which Ari Gold was blackmailed.
Furthermore, Connolly alleged that Hui He threatened to “gut his identity and self-worth” and that she said, “You won’t see it coming” before it would hit him “like a ton of bricks.”
Usually, I would say everything and anything to put down this psycho broad and take the side of the screenwriter, but the fact that she’s using f*cking Entourage references to threaten people commands my respect.
