The former talent manager for Melissa Joan Hart has sued the actress for allegedly refusing to pay commissions on her earnings from ABC Family’s "Melissa & Joey," according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Hollywood, Esq. blog.
The suit, from Kieran Maguire, starts with a punny line: "Melissa Joan Hart has no heart," the story says.
Maguire claims that Hart hired him in August 2006 when her career was "dwindling" and that she agreed orally to pay him the standard 10% commission. The suit alleges he represented her for five years until he was fired in March 2011, and that Hart is allegedly refusing to pay him commissions beyond the first year of the show, the story says.
