Orlando Bloom's former management company has sued the actor for allegedly failing to pay $660,000 in commissions
Latest news reported actor Orlando Bloom has been sued by his former management company, The Firm, claiming he's failed to pay $660,000 in commissions for his successful film "Pirates of the Caribbean." As mentioned in the claim filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, in June 2002 Bloom had an oral agreement with The Firm to pay the management company 10 percent commission for work negotiated on the actor's behalf.
As time goes by, Bloom then ended his relationship with The Firm in July 2005 but did not pay money he owed, the court documents continued. Moreover, the complaint also sued Aleen Keshishian, talent manager and a former employee of The Firm who had managed Bloom, and BGE, for the two have wrongfully collected at least $200,000 in commissions for the upcoming second and third "Pirates of the Caribbean" films.
In this case, The Firm claimed it is entitled to those commissions because the films were negotiated on Bloom's behalf while Keshishian was at The Firm. Calls to either one of the people related to the case were not immediately returned.
