LeBlanc sued by former business manager
EmptyMatt LeBlanc's former business manager has filed a lawsuit alleging the actor owes her at least $1 million.
Camille Cerio claims she served as LeBlanc's manager in 1994, according to a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The suit cites a 1994 letter in which LeBlanc approved the payment of 15% of his earnings for "pilot and series derived from 'Friends Like Us' and subsequent jobs derived henceforth" to Cerio. "Friends Like Us" was the original title of NBC's hit series "Friends."
Cerio contends she was entitled to receive commission for as long as LeBlanc received income from "Friends" and its spin-off series "Joey," but the payments stopped in 2000 and she is owed at least $1 million. "Friends" ended in 2004.
Her lawsuit claims breach of contract and unfair business practice. It seeks a court order requiring LeBlanc to show how much he has earned from "Friends" and "Joey."
An after-hours call to LeBlanc's attorney was not returned Tuesday.
