Michael K. Williams Sued By Former Manager
Michael K. Williams, best known for his roles on “The Wire” and “Boardwalk Empire,” has been slapped with a $450,000 lawsuit by his former manager who claims the actor owes him bread for getting him countless roles in TV and film.
Via Page Six:
Michael Kimbrew began working with a broke Williams when the actor was crashing on Kimbrew’s Los Angeles couch between 2008 and 2010 and says Williams failed to pay him $450,000 in managerial fees, according to his Manhattan federal court suit.
The two men had formed Freedome Productions together, and their projects earned some $2.5 million, but Kimbrew — who claims he was to be paid a 20 percent cut of the revenues — says he has been paid just $3,000.
The actor’s lawyer, David Stein, called the lawsuit “baseless” and promised a vigorous response.
Hopefully, the Michaels will be able to settle up the money – if it’s owed.
