Vanessa Hudgens Sued For $5 Million

Vanessa Hudgens Sued For $5 Million

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is being sued by producer Johnny Vieira for more than $5 million and punitive damages.

In May 2005, Vieira claims he and Vanessa entered into an agreement to launch Vanessa‘s career and “share equally” in the profits. But after High School Musical became a hit, he says she dropped him and owes him $2 million.

Vanessa even sent a photo of herself to Viera with this inscription: “Johnny, thank you for everything, without you, I would be no where [sic], we will make it BIG- Vanessa Hudgens. Sweet.” You can see the note at TMZ.

    haha my friends and I are laughing SO hard right now! we only kinda like her so it’d be funny if she did loose a couple of million! just cuz, i dunno, she always seems soooo freakin self absorbed and this might show her that good looks can only get her so far!

    It is so not fair

  • Celina

    vanessa is awesome.I met her when i went backstage on the August 8th show [my birthday] she is really nice.there was nobody but me and her.

    she gave me a lot of things to remember her by.she is not self obsorbed and,she is richer than 100 million dollars for sure.
    she’s #8 on the top 10 rich teens.

  • http://www.x-mizzvanessa-x.piczo.comFansyte VH #1 amazed fan

    I cant believe this s!!!!!!! she’s more rich than I thought!

  • zaccara

    JARED!!! please print ALL of a story or none of it. She and Hollywood records say that a settlement was reached with this person and he is claiming they are not paying or have paid him the settlement.

    Look like he wants more than he got. Also is she was a minor he can’t actually sue her but her representation (layers, parents, record co).

    Be very careful dear–go ask your mom or grandmom – what goes around comes around and when it comes it’s uglier than the original thought, or deed. Maybe you should think before wishing ill on someone else – it comes back in ways you don’t expect sometimes it retaliates against your partents or child or another loved one and you ask yourself why this is happening to you and goes back to some vicious wish or thought you had about someone else.

    You haters don’t seem to get that and when it comes back and it ALWAYS DOES you wonder why

  • anon

    its ok vanessa!!! this will only make you stronger!<3

  • ali

    why does this sound so ridiculous?
    oh yeah! because it is!
    if they’ve already reached a settlement,
    then why is this fattie mcpattie asking for more?

  • audrey

    haha #4s, you got a point there :p

  • alex

    she is definatly NOT self sbsorbed, i see her givin money out to that homeless guy alll the time. she is sooo nice. you guys really need to back off cuz her nude pics were a mistake and normal humans make mistakes. god look at miley im pretty sure she will NEVER learn. but i know vanessa did.


    fuck haters

  • fan

    This is nothing. Most celebrities go thru this. Everytime whenever you fired agents, representatives, managers, etc, they will sue the celebrities for their fees. Look at the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, & other professional players that make over $1,000,000 per year, which those players hire and fire agents representatives left and right, and those fired agents come bace and sue them for millions for unpaid fee. The professional players’ attorney just settle out of court and negiotiate a fee that both side agree on.

    Vanessa probably have her attorney working on it already. She is probably expecting because of the first lawyer, that sued her first, failed to do his job at that time. Now Vanessa can probably sue that first lawyer for malpractice and client missrepresentation.
