TMZ On The Wayne Newton Monkey Bite Lawsuite

Recently, Marc C. Naron, Esq., of D.R. Patti & Associates filed suit on behalf of 15-year old Genevieve Urena for personal injuries she sustained when she was bitten by Wayne Newton’s pet monkey named Boo. The bite occurred during a tour of Newton’s former home, Casa De Shanandoah. TMZ wrote about the story here.


Thanks To Your Monkey


Wayne Newton‘s monkey ain’t your average Curious George … cause the teenage girl who says the animal bit her says the injury required medical attention.
TMZ’s obtained a pic of the injury allegedly caused by Wayne’s Capuchin monkey, Boo. The girl’s mother is suing Newton claiming Boo bit her daughter’s right wrist 2 years ago while visiting Newton’s former estate, Casa de Shenandoah … a tourist attraction and museum in Las Vegas.
Their attorney, Marc Naron of D.R. Patti & Associates, says the bite broke the girl’s skin … causing it to swell — and she had to go to a hospital where she got a tetanus shot. The pic, btw, was taken the day after the alleged incident.

Dog bite
We’re told the alleged victim, who was 15 at the time, underwent follow-up treatments and was left with a gnarly scar that may be permanent. She claims she underwent counseling because of her fear of animals.
In the lawsuit, the family says Boo was not caged nor on a leash when they visited back in October 2017.
Wayne and his wife, Kathleen McCrone Newton, tell us they haven’t seen the lawsuit. They add … their company stopped operating Casa de Shenandoah in July 2017, “due to Wayne’s almost dying from a spider bite” — so they have “no idea what happened in October 2017.”
