Britney Spears Lawsuit: Sued for $141k

15 Dec

Can you believe it costs $303,900 to provide Britney Spears with a full-time 365-day security detail???

TMZ is reporting that her former protectors who claim the pop star’s people screwed them out of half-a-year’s pay, have sued the starlet.

The people who run Britney’s estate are being sued  by Advanced Security Concepts Corporation — claiming Team Spears never paid them more than $140k in fees … after they kicked the bodyguard company to the curb back in 2010.

ASCC claims Team Spears has been unfairly holding a grudge against it ever since one of their former bodyguards, Fernando Floresfiled a lawsuit against Britney last year … accusing her of multiple instances of genital-exposing sexual harassment. Britney has denied the allegations.

But in the lawsuit, ASCC claims Team Spears demanded the company cover Britney’s legal expenses in the case — even though they weren’t obligated to put up the cash.

ASCC claims Britney’s people not only fired them after the stand-off — but they refused to fork over a check for $141,625.00 … the remainder of a 1-year contract which Brit’s camp had previously agreed to pay out whether or not they actually used the security service.

24 Oct

One of the stars of R&B group B2K is being sued by the State of California for more than a million dollars for allegedly operating an illegal marijuana dispensary in L.A. … TMZ  reported over the weekend.

Police believe 25-year-old Dreux Pierre Frederic — aka Lil’ Fizz — is one of the owners of the Little Amsterdam weed shop in West Hollywood, CA., which has been open for business since 2008.

In the court docs, prosecutors want Lil’ Fizz to shut down his operation ASAP … PLUS, they want him to pay a $2,500 fine for every day the shop has been open since July 1, 2010 … which currently totals 477 days … so, $1,192,500.

Superstar boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr is being sued by Quincy Williams and Damien Bland for close to $200,000. The allegations are over a shooting that occurred in 2009 outside of a Las Vegas skating rink.
