Face it, the world would be boring without a little Hollywood legal drama! The latest FBI drama stars to have a brush with the legal system include 24 star Keifer Sutherland and Without A Trace star Roselyn Sanchez. Sure Sutherland’s arrest has been widely reported, but where is the end of this story, and has the media (or paparazzi) stepped over the the line again?
Roselyn Sanchez was recently sued by her ex-managers, Collective Management Group, and they claim she owes money in commission payments for her work on Without A Trace. Both she and the company have responded back and forth on the matter.
She says they were paid and are not entitled to the fees they claim. They say she owes commissions and fees for her role in the film, Yellow. Is Sanchez being treated unfairly, or is she trying to ignore her obligations?
Keifer Sutherland’s head-butting incident (he “head-butted” a fashion designer inside a Manhattan night club recently) has already been mulled over much in the news. He was basically arrested for what amounts to a speeding ticket. The latest is a plea from actress Brook Shields, who some say is the reason for the incident. She says the media has put an unfair spotlight on her because of this incident.
I suspect Sutherland and Shields are both reasonable people, and I have a general distrust and dislike for paparazzi because they do bad things. However, in the scheme of things, do you think Shields is secretly glad to have this attention? After all, the last big media story about her seems to be her tiff over comments made by Tom Cruise, and some blurbs about her alleged Cougar status.
