LATEST: Actor Kelsey Grammer has hit back after a team of workmen accused him of failing to pay them - insisting their lawsuit against him "has no merit."
The former Frasier star was hit with legal action from Californian kitchen company The Last Detail earlier this month (Jul08), amid accusations he commissioned work on his home but failed to settle the $150,000 (GBP75,000) bill.
But Grammer is outraged by the lawsuit, insisting he paid the company nearly a million dollars in fees but eventually fired the team after they failed to honour their contract.
And now he is considering legal action of his own.
He tells TMZ.com, "(The lawsuit) has no merit. Their claim was filed over a year after they were fired for non-performance and after having received fees over $900,000. I pay my bills in a timely fashion - always have."
And the actor's lawyer, Paul Sorrell adds, "We have just learned that this company, The Last Detail, owned by Greg Cline, has had at least three citations issued against them with the State of California's Consumer Board, including one instance of fraud."
