9 Celebrities Who Sued Their Managers
7. Elton John
Elton John brought a lawsuit against the accounting firm Pricewaterhousecoopers and his former manager, Andrew Haydon, in the early 2000s. According to court documents, he sued Haydon for negligence, claiming that he was negligent and allowed John’s accountants to unfairly charge the singer for overseas tour expenses that should have been covered by the firm. Unfortunately for John, he lost the lawsuit, with the judge claiming that the singer’s “case fails on the facts.”
6. Alyssa Milano
The former Mistresses star filed a $10 million lawsuit against her former manager in June 2017. In the lawsuit, Alyssa Milano accused accountant Kenneth Hellie and his firm, Hellie, Hoffer & Co., of forging her signature on financial documents, failing to pay overdue bills and taxes, and persuading her to make bad investments in businesses in which he was also an investor, without making her aware of the conflict, all of which left her millions of dollars in debt. In the only statement Hellie released, he claimed that the situation was a lot like Johnny Depp’s situation with his manager, but only time will tell.
