Vanessa Hudgens Sparks Legal Battle with Ex-Producer
Actress Vanessa Hudgens has reignited her legal battle, with
an ex-producer she sued in 2009, after he allegedly failed to pay her the
$38,000 (Dhs139,000) she was awarded in the case.
The High School Musical star wants the judgment she won
last year (2010), against Johnny Vieira to be enforced, according to legal documents
obtained by TMZ.com.
Vanessa entered into a production agreement with Vieira
in 2005 to launch her career and “share equally” in her potential success.
She sued Vieira in 2009 over allegations he was using her
image in promotional material despite their professional relationship coming to
an end in 2006.
Hudgens was awarded $29,500 (Dhs108,000) in damages, as well
as $9,314 (Dhs34,000) in attorney’s fees, but claims she has yet to receive the
money, according to legal documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on
Wednesday (9 November).
