Tobey Maguire Pays Out $197,000 To Settle Laundered Money Suit
SPIDER-MAN star TOBEY MAGUIRE has paid out $197,000 (GBP123,125) laundered by former financial advisor DANA GIACCHETTO to settle an ongoing lawsuit.
The hunky actor is one of a number of celebrities who was unknowingly given money by Giacchetto - who had acquired it by defrauding lesser-known clients.
Maguire is the latest big name to settle the matter financially after CAMERON DIAZ paid back $100,000 (GBP62,500), TIM ROTH wrote a cheque for $6,000 (GBP3,750) and ALANIS MORISSETTE returned $1,800 (GBP1,125).
Giacchetto is currently serving a four year jail sentence after being convicted of helping himself to funds from various clients, including TITANIC superstar LEONARDO DiCAPRIO.26/09/2003 02:09
