    A non-Jewish burlesque artist who sued her landlord for making antisemitic comments has won her case.

    Gossip website TMZ said Dita Von Teese had won a £3,200 payout in Los Angeles. The amount was the security deposit she paid Lallubhai Patel in the first place, which he refused to return when she left the property.

    According to the court documents Mr Patel taunted her and "went on Mel Gibson-like antisemitic tangents, personally attacking [Ms Von Teese's] Jewish managers."

    The dancer, whose most famous routine involves her stripping in a giant cocktail glass, said the landlord also warned her to "beware of Jews".

    Despite counter-suing for damage to the property he continued to ignore court orders, handing Ms Von Teese a victory.
