By now plenty of online readers have heard about the case of Jennifer Connell, as reported by the Inquisitr, not to be confused with popular actress Jennifer Connelly, whose name Google keeps offering up as a corrected spelling. No, this 54-year-old Connell has been dubbed as the world’s worst aunt after the trial that Jennifer launched against her own nephew went viral.
Connell sued her own nephew — Sean Tarala — a boy who was a mere 8-year-old when he jumped into his Aunt Jennifer’s arms because he was so excited to see Connell arrive at his eighth birthday party. According to CT Post, that lawsuit for $127,000 that Jennifer filed strictly against Sean, and not his father Michael, was unsuccessful. The jury quickly ruled against the “worst aunt of the Internet,” and weren’t too keen to be interviewed about their verdict — as Connell begged for protection as she was escorted to her car. Throughout most of the two-day trial, Jennifer kept a sly smile on her face.
