Who needs Friends like these: Matt LeBlanc sued

Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc is being sued by his former business manager for at least a million dollars, which she claims the actor owes her.

Camille Cerio claims she served as the Friends star’s manager in 1994, according to a lawsuit filed on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The suit cites a 1994 letter in which the actor approved the payment of 15 per cent of his earnings for ‘pilot and series derived from Friends Like Us and subsequent jobs derived henceforth’ to Cerio.

Friends Like Us was the original title of the NBC’s hit comedy series which shot the actor to fame.

Cerio contends she was entitled to receive a commission for as long as Matt received income from Friends and its spin-off series Joey.

But the payments stopped in 2000, and she says she is owed at least a million dollars. Friends ended in 2004.

The lawsuit claims breach of contract and unfair business practices. It seeks a court order requiring the actor to show how much he has earned from Friends and Joey.

An after-hours call to the star’s attorney was not immediately returned.
