Glee - Nene Leakes Sued By Wedding Planner

Glee star Nene Leakes has been hit with a lawsuit by a woman who claims she is owed payment for organising the actress' wedding.

Leakes remarried her ex-husband Gregg Leakes last month (Jun13) just two years after their initial divorce was finalised, and celebrity wedding planner Tiffany Cook claims she was hired to run the event but has not received full payment.

Cook filed legal papers in Georgia claiming Leakes promised to pay her 15 per cent of the entire wedding budget plus fees for the design and execution of the ceremony and travel expenses to the event.

In the court documents obtained by editors at Tmz.com, Cook claims Leakes' budget for the wedding was $1.8 million (£1.2 million) and she is therefore entitled to $270,000 (£180,000) in addition to her $889,900 (£593,266) design fees.

She is also asking for $1,750 (£666) in travel expenses.

Although Leakes made an initial down payment of $18,750 (£12,500), Cook alleges she has not received additional payment since and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 (£761,933) balance, plus damages. She is demanding $2.5 million (£1.6 million) in total.

A representative for the actress refuted Cook's claims and insisted the actual wedding planner was Tony Conway, adding, "This lawsuit has no merit and it appears to be a baseless attempt to grab 15 minutes of fame."

Leakes herself adds, "I don't owe her a f**king dime."
