The Cosby Show - Pulliam Sued By Former Agents
Former The Cosby Show star Keshia Knight Pulliam has been dragged into a legal battle by her former agents who allege she dumped them after they helped win her a lucrative TV deal.
Lawyers for bosses at Greene & Associates Talent Agency claim their clients landed former child star Pulliam a leading role in Tyler Perry's House of Payne.
According to documents obtained by Tmz.com, the agents negotiated a deal that earned their star up to $20,000 (£12,500)-per-episode before she fired them last summer (11).
Greene & Associates agents claim the actress owes them a commission fee from the deal and other shows they worked on for her.
They are suing for more than $100,000 (£62,500) in back payments and more than $250,000 (£156,250) for commissions they claim their former client stands to earn in the future from deals they helped put together, according to the website.
