Sex And The City Writer Being Sued

SEX AND THE CITY author CANDACE BUSHNELL is disputing a claim by her former manager for commissions worth more than $500,000 (GBP277,777).

CLIFFORD STREIT is suing the New York writer for a cut of the syndication revenue she has received from the makers of the seminal TV series - claiming it was he who delivered the book to TV network HBO.

Bushnell says, "It's just too silly for me to comment on."

A separate issue between the two involves alleged similarities between Bushnell's 2002 book 4 BLONDES and an earlier screenplay by Streit.

He comments, "Candace, I hope, is a friend, and I hope we can deal with it."
