HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL star VANESSA HUDGENS is being sued for $5 million (2.5 million) by the man who helped to launch her singing career.
Johnny Vieira filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Monday (11Aug08), alleging that he and Hudgens entered into a production agreement to launch the teenager’s career. He claims they had a deal to “share equally” in her potential success.
Vieira says the agreement was approved by the court because she was a minor. Vieira goes on to say that she dumped him when the Disney film became a success and they entered into a settlement agreement.
He claims Hudgens owes him more than $2 million (1 million) and is suing for a total of $5 million (2.5 million).
