According to the Matiss lawsuit, which was obtained by TMZ, Queen Latifah brought two of her dogs for treatment at Millan’s Canine Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, California. Junior allegedly mauled his dog to death, but Millan allegedly told the rapper-actress that her pet was hit by a car.

Matiss claimed that in 2017 she went to her mother’s office in a building owned by Millan, who she worked for. There, Matiss says, she met Junior, who she said wandered her halls unsupervised and off-leash.

She says the dog attacked her, biting her legs, including her left calf, and she had to be treated at a local hospital for serious injuries.

Before his injury, Matiss had been a promising gymnast in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics. She said that before her injury, she had been scouted by the University of Pennsylvania for a potential scholarship, but the attack at the office reported by the dog ended her career.

Matiss claims his mother’s boss knew Junior had a history of abuse, but the famous dog trainer allowed him to roam free.

Millan responded in the lawsuit that Matiss assumed the risk of being bitten, claiming that she was somehow also negligent.

According to a tweet, Queen Latifah shared that she had her first training session with Millan in January 2018.

Millan is best known for his Emmy-nominated television series, Dog Whispereraired for nine seasons on National Geographic.

He is best known for his use of behavior modification techniques and the philosophy that exercise, discipline, and affection are needed “in that order” for dogs to be raised healthy and balanced.
