Hanks' Wife Battles The Beatles Seller

TOM HANKS' wife RITA WILSON is in the middle of a legal battle over the non-payment of a THE BEATLES poster.
The actress agreed to pay $75,000 (GBP50,000) for a vintage picture of the Fab Four for her husband - provided the seller, Melissa Pearl could provide proof of authenticity, according to papers filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court.
When Pearl was unable to do so, Wilson backed out of the deal, reports celebrity website TMZ.com.
Pearl is now demanding payment for the print - as well as an additional $300,000 (GBP200,000) "for what Peal absurdly characterised as her time and trouble to obtain the evidence requested by Wilson that the poster was authentic."
Wilson is looking for a judge to legally declare she can walk away from the agreement.
