CESAR Millan's pit bull allegedly "mauled" one of Queen Latifah's pooches in a dog fight, and he reportedly asked his staff to "lie about the incident."
The famous dog trainer has also faced a lawsuit from a star gymnast who claimed that the same dog ambushed her leaving "severe injuries."
Cesar's pitbull Junior allegedly "attacked and killed" the actress' dog, TMZ revealed.
The reality star's pooch has a history of violence, after having "bitten several people and mauled several dogs," ex-gymnast Lidia Matiss also claimed.
In a lawsuit filed by the former athlete, she alleged that Queen Latifah brought two of her dogs to Cesar's Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, CA.
Lidia then claimed that Junior "mauled" one of the rapper's "dogs to death," and added that "Cesar covered it up by telling his staff to tell Queen Latifah the dog was hit and killed by a car."
The Sun has reached out to both Cesar and Queen Latifah for comment but has not heard back at this time.
'WOUNDED & DISFIGURED'
The star gymnast has also come forward with her own horror story, as she alleged that in 2017 she "went to her mom's office building in Van Nuys, CA," as she was working for Cesar at that time.
Lidia said she "encountered Cesar's pit bull, Junior, who was roaming the halls unsupervised and unleashed."
She then claimed that the dog "attacked her, repeatedly biting her on the legs, including her left calf."
Lidia alleged that she had to go to the "ER" as her "injuries were severe."
The former child athlete said she was performing at "Level 10," which is "the highest level in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics Program."
Lidia claimed she was being "actively recruited by the University of Pennsylvania, but everything changed with the dog bite."
The gymnast added that she "could no longer compete" due to the "extreme pain she was enduring."
She said that the bite left her "impaired, wounded, disfigured and she continues to suffer physical and emotional pain."
Lidia has filed a lawsuit for "unspecified damages," the outlet revealed, and alleged that "Cesar knew Junior had a history of violence yet regularly allowed the dog to roam free."
Cesar has filed an answer to the suit, claiming that Lidia "assumed the risk of being bitten because she knew of the danger."
He also slammed Lidia as "negligent," though he didn't elaborate on the topic.
CLAIM TO FAME
The Dog Whisperer star was born in Mexico though he became an American citizen in 2009 after crossing the border illegally.
Cesar began his career as a dog groomer, and he later founded his own training academy.
The TV star has worked with celebrity clients for years, including Jada Pinkett Smith who he credits for helping him learn English.
The dog trainer's show aired from 2004 to 2012, where he used his "calm-assertive energy" to train canines.
Junior, the pitbull facing accusation of violence, was frequently used by Cesar to train other dogs.
On July 21, 2021, the famed trainer announced that Junior had died in a video posted on YouTube.
