Sad new detail in Woody Allen's lawsuit against American Apparel: T-shirt mogul Dov Charney has started arguing that it's perfectly acceptable for him to bring up Allen's wife, Soon-Yi Previn, because she's said bad things about his company. To wit: "Soon-Yi Previn told her filmmaker hubby that the hipster clothing company was 'sleazy,' according to legal papers filed yesterday." Guys, Woody Allen is 73 years old. He doesn't know how to Google. We're guessing that whatever Soon-Yi said about the company, it was in response to her husband asking "What is this American Apparel and why are they using my face?"
