Is litigious aunt Jennifer Connell a raging narcissist?

Written by Angela Atkinson

You know how sometimes you feel like you’re reading something so outrageous that you wonder if it’s a joke, or the plot for a crazy movie?

The narcissist who sued her nephew

I’m there right about now, and I just have to see if you’re on the same page.

Okay. Here goes – I hope you’re sitting down.

I can’t believe the story I just read, but it’s apparently true. This woman, a so-called “aunt” just wrapped up a court case in which she sued a 12-year-old boy – her own nephew. 

Why? Did he steal her car? Break her window? Kill her dog? No. 

She sued him because when he jumped into her arms four years ago, her wrist was supposedly broken. And that made it hard for her to walk the stairs to her apartment. 

Not to mention that she wasn’t able to serve her guests at a party recently. Ahem. 

SO yeah. Let’s discuss this. Could this lady be a narcissist? You tell me. I say maybe – but then again who am I to judge. I’ve just never met a normal person who could sue a kid for such a thing. It seems insane to me. What do you think?

Aunt Loses Lawsuit Against 12-Year-Old Nephew Who Allegedly Broke Her Wrist With a Hug“Jennifer Connell had sued young Sean Tarala for $127,000, claiming her wrist injury made it difficult to walk up the three flights of stairs to her Upper East Side apartment, and that—I am not making this up—she had trouble holding her hors d’oeuvres plate at a recent party. She said he was negligent in excitedly jumping into her arms, and a “reasonable eight-year old” would know better.”

What is a covert narcissist?

What is a covert narcissist?

Unlike the overt narcissist, the covert narcissist will not necessarily display narcissistic behavior that is immediately recognizable. You might even think they’re an empath because they seem so modest, so sensitive and so very unsure of themselves. A covert narcissist is someone who has narcissistic personality disorder (or might, if they’d ever go see a psychologist for a diagnosis), but who doesn’t seem to have the obvious grandiosity factor. They don’t always seem to act as self-important as the more overt narcissist. They don’t appear to feel like they’re better than everyone – at least not before you know them well. They appear to be vulnerable and oversensitive, which will often manifest in their behavior as hostility and defensiveness. They will be the one who is quietly looking down their nose at you, judging you and everyone else around them harshly and often unfairly.
