Gwyneth Paltrow is indeed again at the heart of a controversy.
And this time, it is not users or health professionals who are attacking him, but a 76-year-old man, Terry Sanderson.
This retired optician accuses the Goop founder of hitting and seriously injuring him while the two were skiing on a mountain in Utah in February 2016.

Injury and hit-and-run
The collision would have occurred more precisely in Deer Valley, a posh resort in the Rockies, located above Park City, a city famous for its film festival, that of Sundance.
According to the plaintiff's statements, Gwyneth Paltrow was skiing in a "dangerous" manner and ran into him.
The septuagenarian would have fallen violently, to the point of ending up with “four broken ribs and permanent brain damage”, he assures.
But his accusations do not stop there since Terry Sanderson accuses the actress of hit and run.
He claims that Gwyneth Paltrow and her ski instructor got away quickly, without helping him.

The Goop founder rejects these “false allegations”.
The one who was also Oscar winner in 1999 for her role in
Shakespeare in Love
, defended herself by filing a complaint in her turn.
She claims, on the contrary, that it was Terry Sanderson who hit him first in the back.
Her lawyer Steven Owens assured the court that Gwyneth Paltrow was 'not going fast' and she got scared when Mr Sanderson appeared behind her.
The actress had confirmed at the time that she had been shocked by the accident, to the point that she had not been able to ski for the rest of the day.
The family called to testify
As her lawyer slurred a complaint based on “bullshit,” Gwyneth Paltrow sat in a white turtleneck sweater.
She is expected to take the stand later.
Her husband Brad Falchuk and children Apple and Moses are also due to speak.
The outcome of this trial seems uncertain for the time being.
As a reminder, Terry Sanderson is claiming $300,000 from Gwyneth Paltrow in damages.
Judgment will be rendered in the coming days.
