Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you. While I am not a lawyer, I would say that the answer to your question is no. Whether you actually said that she stinks or not, is not grounds enough to sue you. SEE BELOW:

----------------------

If you meet the requirements for a civil action, you can sue someone for defamation, whether libel or slander, if they have written or said something bad about you. However, you must be able to prove the necessary elements of a defamation suit if you wish to collect damages.

Reasons for a Defamation Lawsuit

You may be able to sue for defamation if:

  • False statements were made as if they were true.
  • The defamation caused damages.

Other than a bruised ego, I don't think the statement caused her any damages. If she is threatening to sue you, I wouldn't worry about it.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter. If I have answered your question, I ask that you be so kind as to scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you. Thank you in advance.
