The ex-Top Gear host is in some really hot water.

The news surrounding Jeremy Clarkson never ends. The incident that occurredbetween Clarkson and Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon earlier this year is now in full force. As aresult of the incident, Tymon had bleeding to his lip and swelling, whileClarkson was sacked from the motoring show. At the time, Tymon didn’t presscharges, which was understandable as he was facing some severe outrage from TopGear fans. However, Tymon has now filed a discrimination suit against Clarksonand the BBC.

According to a report by The Guardian, Tymon is seekingroughly $152,000 for racial discrimination and personal injury. After theincident, an official report was released that stated Clarkson used abusive andderogatory statements toward Tymon. Tymon’s lawyers and the BBC attended theCentral London Employment Tribunal last Friday for a preliminary hearing inregard to the legal action. A spokesman for the BBC stated: "We will beresponding to this claim but will not be commenting further at this time." Tymonreturned to work for the BBC in May and is still an employee of thecorporation, but has not worked since the incident.
