As if this developing story couldn't get any weirder, Verne Troyer is now suing Ranae Shrider for allegedly beating the hell out of him.

Verne's lawyer, Ed McPherson, tells celebrity news site TMZ, "When you pick up a 2'8" human being and throw him to the floor, it hurts."
Well, it's hard to argue with that.
Others are being sued here as well, including some lawyer who allegedly tried to broker a deal for the sale of the Verne Troyer sex tape.
In the lawsuit, Verne Troyer basically says Ranae Shrider terrorized him.
Once, she even picked the lock to his bedroom door, pushing away a 100 pound scooter that was used to block it, and threw him on the floor. Ouch.
