Robin Williams Sues His "Twin"



Robin Wlliams has sued Michael Clayton and his agent Michael Pool, for they have made use his name to held a fake charity

The Oscar-winning funnyman Robin Williams has filed a legal lawsuit against Michael Clayton and his agent Michael Pool for using his name, voice and likeness to allegedly con charities out of money. The lawsuit, filed in a Minnesota federal court, accuses Clayton and Pool of illicitly profiting by claiming the impersonator "is the real Robin Williams and going to great lengths to deceive innocent members of the media, general public and charitable organizations into falling for their ruse."

In his further allegation, Williams claimed the two men have asked the charity for $2,500 to cover expenses. As mentioned in the court papers, Clayton impersonated Williams over the phone to the woman to convince her that he was the real deal. The unnamed woman then got suspicious after reading an article about the alleged conmen and the fire department fundraiser was cancelled, costing the charity in excess of $40,000. In short, Williams is seeking a ruling against Clayton and Pool, stopping them from using his "identity, name, likeness and voice without expressly informing his actual and potential audiences that Clayton is not the real Robin Williams".
