She claimed that she had a three-year sexual relationship with her boss as she feared losing her job that she finally quit in 1993. She asked for $8 million to settle things out of the court but Barker challenged her to sue her instead in a press conference.
As it's really a serious matter, Barker opened up the matter with PEOPLE back in 1994. He said,
"I think any man would find it difficult to talk about his sex life with the press. but this is what I have to do."
He confessed that the two had a physical relationship from 1989 to 1991 but it was Dian who initiated the affair. He mentioned in the press conference that Parkinson is not telling the truth and it's truly an injustice for women who suffer the accident in real.
Parkinson dropped the case in April 1995 as she stated that it was hurting her health that included internal bleeding and anemia.
