Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt is being sued for $350,000 (GBP175,000) in damages by her former management company.
Handprint Management alleges the 28-year-old owes the company money for brokering her starring role on his US TV show The Ghost Whisperer.
The lawsuit, filed on Friday (27Apr07) in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims Love Hewitt's career was revitalised by the hit programme, which brought her "back to national prominence as a television star".
Love Hewitt left Handprint Management in March 2005, reports TMZ.com.
The suits says the actress paid Handprint Management in full for the first season of The Ghost Whisperer, but refused to pay for the second season.
