The 'Die Hard' star has countered luxury goods suppliers Mansour, who claims he damaged a handmade wool and silk carpet, by demanding the case to be dismissed.
Bruce Willis has asked a judge to dismiss a $28,000 lawsuit against him over a stained rug. In May, the "Die Hard" action man was sued by luxury goods suppliers Mansour after staff claimed they discovered a red wine spill on a handmade wool and silk carpet the star had returned.
The item had been at his Los Angeles home for two months - but Willis insisted he had nothing to do with the damage. According to his lawyer, Willis offered to have the rug professionally cleaned, but the company refused and demanded he paid the full sale price.
Now, according to TMZ, the star has filed his own suit at Los Angeles Superior Court, demanding that the case be dismissed and that Mansour bosses pay his legal fees.
