Evan Rachel Wood Slapped with $30 Million Lawsuit
She recently split from husband Jamie Bell, and now Evan Rachel Wood has some serious legal drama on her hands.
The “Wrestler” actress is being sued for $30 million by the producers of “10 Things I Hate About Life” because they claim they paid her $300,000 in advance to play the lead and she suddenly backed out.
According to the paperwork, “Wood seemingly changed her mind about appearing in the film during principle photography, ultimately refusing without any legal justification to fulfill her contractual obligations and instead opting to walk out on the project."
Evan’s rep ripped the claim, stating, "The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers. The production shut down in February 2013, when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013, by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues. However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed.”
"Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract."
