Jennifer Love Hewitt is being sued by her former management company for breaching her contract.
Jennifer Love Hewitt gets sued by her management company, Handprint Management, for breaching her contract.
In the court documents, filed Friday April 27th in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, agency Handprint Management accused the movie star of violating the seven-year deal for her hit TV show "The Ghost Whisperer."
Per TMZ, it is claimed that "Handprint Management alleges that J-Love breached her contract, and claims her career had been stalled prior to landing a role on the hit series. They say their work brought her 'back to national prominence as a television star.'"
Hewitt severed ties with Handprint Management in March 2005, but the lawsuit reportedly claims that her deal for "The Ghost Whisperer" was organized during their contractual agreement. She did pay Handprint Management in full for the first season of the show, but refused to pay for the second season. Handprint Management, thus, is seeking $350,000 in damages.
"Ghost Whisperer" is an American television drama-fantasy-thriller about a young woman, played by Hewitt, who can communicate with the spirits of the dead.
