Alex Witt, one of MSNBC’s weekend anchors, is being sued by a friend who claims Witt has failed to repay a $65,000 loan, reports the New York Post.
Stephanie Jones, now Witt’s former best friend, claimed in court documents filed last week in Manhattan Supreme Court that she lent Witt the money in December 2009. Witt had agreed to repay the loan at a rate of $500 a month, but has only given Jones $1,375 of the money owed, according to the documents.
In emails to Jones, Witt reportedly explained that she had been unable to keep up her payments to Jones because Witt’s husband, TV producer Bill Sorensen, was out of work and Alex had maxed out her credit cards.
However, Jones has pointed out that Witt has enough money to drive a Porsche 911 and recently took a trip to Barcelona with her daughter, along with signing a $200,000 contract last fall with MSNBC.
