Garth Brooks - Garth Brooks Hit With Lawsuit

Country star Garth Brooks has been hit with a new lawsuit from his former business partner.

Tv producer Lisa Sanderson, who was hired over two decades ago to jump-start the singer's acting career, claims he failed to pay her for her work in allegedly landing Brooks movie roles in Saving Private Ryan and Twister, both of which he turned down.

In legal papers obtained by Tmz.com, she insists Brooks is not the "humble and highly principled 'everyman'" he appears to be, but a " "paranoid, angry, deceitful and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime."

Sanderson claims Brooks refused to appear as a sniper in Saving Private Ryan because "he wanted to be the star and was unwilling to share the limelight with... Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, and Edward Burns."

The producer has filed legal documents seeking a minimum of $425,000 (Gbp265,625) in back payments, in addition to punitive damages.
