If you watched “Road Trip,” which was released in 2000, then you were likely a fan of “Rhonda,” who was played by Mia Amber Davis (pictured). Unfortunately, Davis died last year in the midst of a promising plus-size modeling and acting career. Now her widow, Mike Yard (pictured below), is suing Davis’ former OBGYN and family practitioner for the death of his wife, according to TMZ.
According to Yard, a stand-up comedian, an OBGYN prescribed his wife birth control pills, such as Balziva and Zenchent, months before she passed of pulmonary embolism or a blood clots on May 9. In the suit, Yard says, “[Birth control pills] greatly increased her risk for a pulmonary embolism and ultimately caused her death.”
Watch Mia’s life here:
Apparently, one of the major risk factors that can contribute to blood clots is obesity, according to the suit. Yard is arguing that the OBGYN and family practitioner should have known not to prescribe that method of birth control to Davis due to her weight. In “Road Trip,” for example, Davis reportedly weighed 300 pounds.

Last April, when Davis reportedly complained to her doctor about knee pain, her practitioner suggested knee surgery, even though, once again, there were a number of risk factors present. TMZ reports:
The doc allegedly cleared Mia for knee surgery … despite a number of risk factors, including obesity, hyperlipidemia and the fact she was on Zenchent.
Even though Yard’s charges are unspecified, he is clear that he is suing for the loss of his beloved wife.
