Wilson Tangled In Website Legal Fight
THE OFFICE star RAINN WILSON has become embroiled in a legal battle over his spiritual website.
The funnyman hired Portland, Oregon-based internet company Think Brilliant to set up Soulpancake.com, a discussion forum about life's big question's including religion and spirituality.
The website launched in March 2009 but Wilson's relationship with bosses at the development firm later turned sour and they recently filed a $11.3 million (£7.5 million) lawsuit against him, accusing the star of failing to pay the firm for its work.
The legal papers also allege Wilson hacked into the Think Brilliant database and accessed confidential material.
Wilson has now filed a countersuit against the company, accusing the firm of fraud and breach of trust and demanding at least $400,000 (£266,667) in damages, according to the Associated Press.
