Snipes Ordered To Pay Up In Talent Agency Row

Hollywood star WESLEY SNIPES has been ordered to pay $1.7 million (GBP850,000) in fees to a talent agency who helped him land roles in four films, according to court documents released on Tuesday (18Sep07). The Blade star, 45, must hand over the outstanding amount to the United Talent Agency (UTA), which filed a lawsuit against the actor in Los Angeles Superior Court last year (06). It is the latest financial wrangle involving Snipes, who faces a court case in Florida later this year (07) on tax evasion charges. The court documents claim UTA helped Snipes secure film roles in Blade 3, Chaos, Middle Man and The Shooter. Under an agreement with the actor, UTA was to be paid 10 per cent of any money he received for the roles - but the lawsuit alleged the star failed to hand over the cash.
