Harvey Keitel is facing a lawsuit over claims he failed to pay an architect for redesigning his home in New York.
Robert Kahn alleges the Reservoir Dogs actor owes him $43,850 (£27,500) for hiring consultants and drawing up plans for an overhaul of the property in Manhattan.
In papers filed at a New York court this week (begs25Jan10), Kahn is demanding Keitel and his wife Daphna Kastner settle the bill for the renovation plans, which included combining three separate apartments into one home.
