Siegfried & Roy Insider Claims Siegfried is a "Tyrant"

As we type this in we are in the fetal position, doubled over in fits of explosive laughter begging for the blessed respite of sweet oxygen. There. (The Corsair inhales) We're better now; we're copacetic. We couldn't make this shit up if we tried. From Lisa Sweetingham of Court TV:

"The bodyguard who once protected tiger tamer Roy Horn of the Siegfried & Roy magic duo claims that Siegfried Fischbacher is a 'tyrant' who overmedicates and humiliates the ailing Horn, who is still recovering from a tiger-mauling incident."

To recap: In that one juicy sentence we heard mention of a "tiger mauling incident," a "magic duo," and, finally, tyranny. Continue:

"''Siegfried was a tyrant and had loud, explosive outbursts at the plaintiff and at Roy,' says the civil suit filed by Louis Mydlach, a former Siegfried & Roy insider.

"'[Fischbacher] forced Roy to take medication, even when Roy begged to not be medicated,' the suit claims."

Is all this done in their native German tongue? Would the glottal clashing of consonants add more flavor to this funk? Becuase the thought of a Frankenstein-monster-like stiched together patchwork that is Roy, screaming, "Nein! Nein" at the light-loafered approach of Siegfried just cracks us up even more. No subtitles needed, get this trial on network tv. Shnell!
