Belly Dancing Scuttles Woman's Disability Claim
MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:
Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. Shakira sings a song called "Hips Don't Lie," and apparently she's right. Just ask the Staten Island woman who recently lost her divorce settlement money. She had claimed a car accident left her too injured to work, then she blogged about belly-dancing performances. When her ex-husband found out about her hip shaking hobby, he took her back to court. The woman says the dance was medical treatment. Her doctor did not corroborate the story.
