The legal paper was filed by investor Mali Nachum who accused Eva Longoria of agreeing to an illegal scam to boost the money she invested in Beso.


Eva Longoria has been hit with a multi-million dollar lawsuit from a former business partner who alleges she agreed to an illegal scam to boost the money she invested in a failed Las Vegas restaurant venture. Investor Mali Nachum has accused the Desperate Housewives star of pouring $1 million into her Beso eatery as part of an illicit scheme which promised her a return of $4.6 million in interest over two years.

Nachum claims the actress' alleged deal violates California law and diminishes his own shares of the venture, according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.com and filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, January 10. He is suing Longoria, who owns a third of Beso, for $4 million in damages.

Longoria has suffered a string of problems with her Beso brand - last week, bosses at the Las Vegas branch filed for bankruptcy after racking up debts of almost $5.7 million. And, in June 2010, Nachum took legal action against the star, claiming she forced him out of his ownership stake and managerial job at the Sin City venue.
