RV dealer challenges Taylor Lautner to push ups

The owner of an RV dealership sued by Taylor Lautner over a customized vehicle challenged the " Twilight " star Monday to
use his muscles instead of his lawyers to resolve the case.

Brent McMahon, who owns McMahon's RV in Irvine, Calif., offered to compete in a push-up contest to settle the breach of contract lawsuit
that Lautner filed Aug. 23 claiming the dealership failed to deliver a
$300,000 RV on time for use as a dressing room on the set of the
actor's latest film.

McMahon and his attorney denied wrongdoing and said they will vigorously defend the case in court if Lautner, 18, doesn't accept the

The dealership said Lautner's camp had sought a $40,000 settlement to resolve the case, leading to the unorthodox proposal by McMahon. The
47-year-old businessman said if he won the contest, he would donate the
settlement money to Children's Hospital of Orange County .

Lautner's attorney Robert Barta declined comment, citing the pending lawsuit.

Lautner's lawsuit claimed McMahon's failed to complete the customized RV on time, and it needed additional work after it was

It was unclear what upgrades Lautner sought. McMahon said the vehicle was given a custom paint job.

Lautner gained fame for his role as Jacob Black in the " Twilight " movie series. He is currently filming "Abduction" and will reprise his
role as Black in the two-part " Twilight " finale.

What a piece of sh*t this guy is. I hope Taylor sues the pants off him. Taylor doesn't need to do any publicity stunts for this turdblossom. This was a business transaction, a contract was signed and the guy couldn't deliver the RV on time and as promised.

I absolutely agree with Eden Courtney's comment. Worse is that now if Taylor doesn't agree to this publicity stunt which includes loser McMahon's RV donating $40K to the children's hospital, it makes Taylor appear to be uncharitable (but we see right through this, McMahon; shame on you!) Really low. Such manipulation, but obviously this is what McMahon is accustomed to resorting to instead of handling the lawsuit in a proper fashion -- in court! If he's so into publicity, why doesn't McMahon offer a public apology to Taylor and then remedy the problem by FIXING the questionable RV!!! Idiot.
