Motley Crue's Mars Sued For Palimony

MOTLEY CRUE guitarist MICK MARS has been slapped with a $10 million (GBP5.2 million) palimony lawsuit from an ex-girlfriend who claims he reneged on a promise to take care of her for life.

According to the lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles court on Tuesday (08FEB05), the woman, ROBBIE MANTOOTH, claims she met Mars in 1990 and the two became lovers.

She alleges she gave up her career as a documentary film-maker and moved into the heavy metal guitarist's Malibu, California, home with him.

Mantooth says Mars promised her repeatedly that he would always provide for her financially and that the couple had agreed to divide all their property if they split up.

Their relationship ended in December (04) and Mantooth says Mars denied there was any oral agreement between them and had given her no financial support.

Mantooth is asking a judge to award her half of the rocker's property as well as monthly support and damages.
