Jennifer Beals Sued for Breach of Contract



Beals' former business manager has filed a breach of contract suit against the actress in Los Angeles County Superior Court, in a row over commission

Former business manager of actress Jennifer Beals sued the star for breach of contract, claiming she has failed to pay commission on the second and upcoming third season of her Showtime series, "The L Word."

In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Seven Summits Pictures and Management claimed to have already helped the actress get her role on the series and thus deserved for 10 percent commission from subsequent seasons.

Yet, Beals only paid them commission for season one of the hit US TV series, which is now in its third season. That means she owes them more than $215,158 for seasons two and three. About this matter Seven Summits' lawyer Alexander Rufus-Isaacs said "Essentially, Miss Beals was way off the radar when they began to manage her, they helped put her back on the scene, and now that she's back in a big series, she goes and dumps them. But the way it works is, if somebody breaks their a*s and gets you a good gig, they're entitled to 10 per cent of the money. If The L Word goes into subsequent seasons the amount will go up."
