Whoopi Goldberg - Whoopi Goldberg sued by unemployed man

Whoopi Goldberg is being sued by an unemployed man.

The 58-year-old actress is the subject of a lawsuit filed by Wajid Al-Qadaffi, who claims she has schemed with New York charity Services for the UnderServed (SUS) to sabotage his chances of getting a job.

According to TMZ, Wajid turned to SUS for help with depression and suicidal thoughts and was told they could help with his problems and also find him a job.

However, despite an impressive background, he didn't get a single interview from the 16-20 positions he applied for and claims the organisation intentionally spoiled his chances.

He has filed the suit against Whoopi because her name appears in the charity's brochure as one of their benefactors.

It was recently announced that the 'Talk' star is to make a reality show about her family.

Whoopi will produce the series through her One Ho Productions along with 44 Blue Productions, and will focus the programme on her daughter Alex Martin, 40, who has three children in their teens and 20s, and her best friend Leisa.

The show will follow Alex as she tries to reinvent herself both personally and professionally with the help of her husband Bernard and Leisa, whose father is actor Lee Weaver.
