Tim Lambesis' wife seeks $2 million in civil suit

Now that we've been dubbed Lambesisgoat by some of our comrades, we figured we'd better maintain our admittedly over-the-top coverage of Tim Lambesis and his legal woes. As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis will turn 33 on Thursday, November 21st. Of course we can't imagine that he will be doing much celebrating. For starters, it seems unlikely that Tim Lambesis will escape prison time for (allegedly) attempting to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife, Meggan. But that is certainly not the only issue Lambesis will have to deal with in the coming months - his aforementioned wife will likely provide Lambesis little mercy when it comes to their divorce case and the civil suit she filed in August. Lambgoat has done quite a bit of research regarding Meggan and her court filings, and here is what we've found:


Meggan Murphy Lambesis
When she asked a judge for a protection order, Meggan Lambesis (at left) stated that "we fear for all our lives" and requested protection for two Boston terrier dogs, as well as herself and three children. Meggan, 32, subsequently obtained a "stay away" order protecting herself and two daughters, age 11 and 9, and a son, 5. All three children were adopted from Ethiopia. Meggan filed for dissolution of marriage in September 2012, one month after the two were separated (the couple was married in June 2004). She claims that the month before, Tim had sent her an email informing her that he no longer loved her and didn't want to be with her anymore. He was away on tour at the time. Meggan stated in court papers that after their separation, "He continued to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle and bought a new residence in his parents' name before he was arrested in May 2013 for allegedly hiring a hitman to have me killed." At the time of Tim Lambesis' arrest, he was living with girlfriend, Amanda. Those two, in addition to a roommate, were living Carlsbad. Meggan lived in a neighboring community, along the San Diego County coastline, in Encinitas. As of August 2013, Tim is listed in court paperwork as residing in Del Mar.

One of Meggan's divorce attorneys asked for release of funds from a court-controlled account. That request was for $52,500 in "fees" and $40,000 in "costs." Meggan's divorce team is listed as four attorneys, a paralegal, a secretary, and a "clerical person;" the combined hourly rate for these seven persons comes to $1,740 per hour. Meanwhile, Tim Lambesis' divorce attorney listed his fee as $525 per hour. Tim stated that he has paid his own attorney $35,000 as of July 2013. After that date, a judge released $20,000 more to each attorney for both sides out of a trust account. In her most recent filings, dated August 7, 2013, Meggan estimated that Tim's income was $14,088 per month; she came to that figure from information she had for the time period November 2012 through February 2013. Tim filed a declaration of income and expense as part of the divorce proceedings. In that paperwork, Tim stated that his parents live with him. In his list of expenses, Tim claimed $2,000 per month for a "psychiatrist." In court papers, Tim stated that he has been unemployed since May 10, 2013; he last filed taxes for year 2010. Tim reported: "All tours were cancelled and the record label does not want to release any albums; the band still has an outstanding debt that will need to be repaid from any future income. The band was advanced 200k two years ago for a contract. That contract ended 6 mos ago and paying back $150k." The next hearing to renew the restraining order against Tim is set for Jan 15, 2014 in San Diego's North County Superior Courthouse. On the same day, in the same courthouse, the criminal case will be heard before another judge in another courtroom. The next date for the Lambesis' divorce proceedings is set for April 16, 2014 in San Diego's Downtown Courthouse.


On August 2, 2013, Meggan Lambesis filed a civil suit, seeking significant monetary damages from her not-yet-ex-husband. This suit was filed nearly one year after she filed for divorce, in the same courthouse where her husband is facing his much-discussed criminal case. Meggan claims "personal injury" and "assault, domestic violence" and "intentional infliction of emotional distress;" these injuries from when her husband allegedly hired a hitman. "The solicitation of another individual to commit murder upon a spouse is abuse….The actions of the Defendant …constitute an actionable assault….Timothy Lambesis' actions were intentional, reckless and outrageous….the actions of Defendant are not tolerated in a civilized society…" are some statements found in the latest action. In this case, Meggan Lambesis is asking $1 million for emotional distress and $25,000 in medical expenses to date, in addition to $75,000 for future medical expenses and $1 million in punitive damages. The suit also seeks attorneys' fees. The next court date for the civil matter is set for April 2014, in San Diego's North County Superior Courthouse.

anonymous 11/19/2013 1:09:56 PM

hahahaha just goes to show, you shouldn't get roided out and try to kill your wife all willy-nilly. Has he never seen the movies? Law and Order? True crime dramas? In what imagination land did see this playing out differently? Of course she is going for the money. Of course she is going to fck Tim over as much as possible. He tried to kill her, remember? No one here would do the same? Just because you play in an Arnold Parody band doesn't mean you'll get away with killing your wife hahaha

anonymous 11/19/2013 1:18:20 PM

Well he's just completely fcked.

Well no wonder he wanted to kill this gold digging c*nt.

anonymous 11/19/2013 5:58:33 PM

I'm behind Tim until he's proven guilty. Looking at what's been made public, this bitch was all about the money over the past few years. I don't trust this white or her crooked cop brother.

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:01:09 PM

I would love to suck on those breasts

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:37:18 PM

Bitch wife, three black kids, raging personality change, = Me, Myself, and Irene.

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:44:25 PM

Hey let's adopt 3 Ethiopian children and then get divorced. Sounds good for the wife though, she's gonna clean him dry. Any future jobs or money he gets will probably be garnished as well. He will never be able to escape her.

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:45:54 PM

I'm behind Tim until he's proven guilty. Looking at what's been made public, this bitch was all about the money over the past few years. I don't trust this white or her crooked cop brother. You are an idiot. The wife is "about the money" just like any other wife who is getting divorced would be.

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:47:31 PM

It sounds like Meggan was loyal to him until he sent an e-mail saying he hated her. Then he tried to have her killed. His life is over.

anonymous 11/19/2013 7:49:45 PM

Well at least Lambgoat has something to do again, they were really getting desperate for a bit.....oh wait.........

anonymous 11/19/2013 8:10:19 PM

Tim Lambesis and George Zimmerman walk into a bar...

anonymous 11/20/2013 3:46:35 AM

nobody ever gets emotional distress awards. that's all made up movie crap that people think they can just ask for. she'll get a settlement for much less. oh, and lol at yet another rock star who got suckered into a huge cash advance without understanding what a recoupment clause is.

anonymous 11/20/2013 4:25:23 AM

Impending Doom is stoked cuz they got the Christian market CORNERED, SON!

anonymous 11/20/2013 4:54:56 AM

Can't wait for Impending Doom's concept album about Tim's life

anonymous 11/20/2013 5:10:53 AM

She's asking for what she's asking knowing full well she won't get it. My prediction is Tim's wife will receive half the assets, child support, and alimony and she just won't get married so she can receive alimony. D

anonymous 11/20/2013 6:44:19 AM


anonymous 11/20/2013 6:48:57 AM

Regardless of what was going on in the marriage prior to Lambesis' Lifetime Roidhead Hitman failure movie of the week, I can't blame her for trying to get what she can for her kids and herself. She'll be the only source of the kid's upbringing and fiscal support for years. Also it's understandable that she's placing a claim on the hidden asset (the house Tim purchased). His kids should be getting what remains of his income, not some dime a dozen piece of ass or his parents.

anonymous 11/20/2013 7:34:46 AM

Also, the woman in the blocked out picture above is Amanda D-----. If you Google her, you'll find various images of her with Lambesis. Nothing like having your dirty laundry aired....

anonymous 11/20/2013 9:37:53 AM

This is OUTRAGEOUS. I love it.

anonymous 11/20/2013 10:34:36 AM

Tim is (was) worth about 14 mil to begin with; she deserves whatever she can get out of that cheating scumbag fckface lowlife.

Lambesis is about to turn 33 - same age as Jesus when he died - he is so Christ like.

xSHAT_CREWx 11/21/2013 12:03:34 PM

like someone else said, i'd try to have this bitch killed too there's a lot we don't know but from this recent shit, you can tell she's a c*nt that deserved to die yeah he broke it off first in an e-mail but it's probably because of c*nt shit all the time that was intolerable

anonymous 11/21/2013 12:30:31 PM

Jerry Sandusky is St0ked!?...too soon!?!?

anonymous 11/22/2013 4:48:26 AM

Tim's net worth is 22.8 million... 2 mil ain't shit to him; his ex wife is just a fcking c*nt that did nothing but sit around all day now she wants money. Suck it whore.

anonymous 11/22/2013 5:52:50 AM

14 grand a month and she wants 2 mil. Lollll. My non college educated ass brings home more money than this Grammy nominated turd burglar ^^^^ I am far more interested in this comment than this entire story. You are either full of shit, or just full of shit.

anonymous 11/22/2013 6:09:06 AM

so... not that anyone cares anymore because its 2013, but what the fck is the rest of the band doing about this? are they going to stay AILD? If Gaza was forced to call it quits because of vague and faulty accusations, then these fckers better have the common decency to end it as-well.

anonymous 12/13/2013 12:35:39 PM

They still talk to this day they have exchanged gifts some several times yep she knew he was married and she is to. Just saying flat out this is the truth

anonymous 12/14/2013 6:01:36 AM

How could anyone call his wife a B___? Her life was turned upside down--an affair(s), a breakup over email, then learning someone was hired to take her life? Wake up, she has every right to try to protect herself. She was humiliated AND has her life/childrens' lives to think about. These comments people utter are so ignorant and vile. The whole situation is just sad. I hope Tim learns from his mistakes; but there are consequences to actions.

anonymous 1/4/2014 5:19:04 AM

K I gotta add My two cents k why would lambsis only fork over 1000 bucks for a fcking mirder num 1 . Two his x's brother is a deputy in the police dept hmmmmm. And I'll bet they just had a big fight or some shitty petty drama like that I'm not saying he is innocent but I don't believe the attempted murder for a second this whole thing doesn't have the actings of distress and sadness or fear as she proclaims to be going through come on for fck sake. 2000000. ??? Get the fck out of here

anonymous 9/25/2014 9:47:13 PM

You call her a bitch and a gold digger: what would you do to someone who tried to have you killed?

anonymous 9/25/2014 9:48:46 PM

Better yet, some one who promised to love you forever (IE married you), convinced you to adopt three kids, roids out, cheats, bails, and THEN tries to have you killed. Yeah, she's clearly the problem here.
