'Unforgettable' Star Hit With Lawsuit Deadline
The star of the CBS crime drama "Unforgettable" has been hit with a lawsuit. Deadline.com reports that Poppy Montgomery is being sued by UTA over what the agency claims is more than $248,222 in unpaid commissions for her work on the series.
UTA is also asking for general damages, interest and legal fees from the actress, who now works with ICM Partners.
“Montgomery paid commissions due to UTA through and including season one of [‘Unforgettable’], and then, for no reason whatsoever, suddenly stopped making payments,” the complaint alleges.
Montgomery’s representative said that the actress “categorically disputes UTA’s claim, which is nothing more than an over-reaching claim by a talent agency which has done nothing for Poppy over the past several years.”
The breach of contract suit was reportedly filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
