Matt LeBlanc sued by ex-manager
Other than our occasional snarky remarks about Joey . . . okay, my occasional snarky remarks about Joey . . . we haven't heard too much from Matt LeBlanc lately. Well, he's back in the news, but not for good reasons.
According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court LeBlanc's former business manager, Camille Cerio, is suing the former Friends star for back pay of one million dollars. Cerio, who claims she was LeBlanc's manager back in 1994, says the actor signed a letter approving payment of 15 percent of his earnings from "pilot and series derived from Friends Like Us (the name of the Friends' pilot) and subsequent jobs derived henceforth". In normal English this means she should've been paid for LeBlanc's roles on Friends as well as Joey.
Apparently she was paid, for a while at least. By 2000, though, the payments stopped. Hence, the reason she is suing for $1 million dollars. In her lawsuit she is asking the court to request that LeBlanc show the earnings he made on the hit NBC sitcom he spent ten years on, as well as spinoff.
At press time there was no response from LeBlanc's camp on the lawsuit.
