Salman Rushdie has threatened to sue his ex bodyguard, Ron Evans, because he wrote a book that contained derogatory terms in reference to himself.
Ron Evans, the ex security officer for Rushdie, claimed that the author was “mean, nasty, tight-fisted and extremely arrogant.”
Ron Evans recounted one anecdote about Rushdie being locked in a cupboard for a few hours because the guards were so frustrated by his treatment of them. The guards went to a pub to drink and cool off before returning and releasing Rushdie from his temporary confinement.
Ron Evans’ book, “On Her Majesty’s Service”, revealed that Rushdie was so untidy in appearance that the guards nicknamed him “Scruffy.”
Salman Rushdie is not amused by all this and he is thinking to sue Ron Evans.
