Dominique Sharpton: Like Father, Like Daughter
Like Al Sharpton himself, his daughter Dominique has a plan to stick to the man -- and like Al himself, she's her own worst enemy in implementing it:
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s island-hopping, mountain-hiking daughter — who is suing the city for $5 million after purportedly injuring her ankle on a Soho sidewalk — posted more damning Instagram pics Monday of her frolicking in Indonesia as legal experts said her social-media activity could cost her big bucks.
“#Balidays on the Gilis!!!’’ Dominique Sharpton, 28, wrote with two snapshots of herself at what looked like a posh Gili Island retreat.
The new entries came the same day The Post revealed others in which the supposedly hobbled Dominique boasted of climbing a mountain there.
Since allegedly spraining her ankle in October, she has also been pictured in high heels at a hippie party and climbing the dicey terrain of Red Rock Canyon in Nevada.
The photos kill even the slightest chance Dominique had of collecting big bucks from the city, legal experts said, even as the de Blasio administration has been shelling out more money than ever to settle lawsuits.
The New York Post quotes a legal expert who predicts that as a result of her photos undermining her case, Sharpton's daughter would collect only $5,000 to $7,500. "That would leave her with a net gain of about zero after paying off expert witnesses and her lawyer, he said."
No word yet on when NBC will be forcing her father to pay his tax bills; "Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses," the Gray Lady reported last year in a rare moment of journalism from the former newspaper.
