Discala, Lachey Sued Over "H-Wood Fame" B-Ball Team

4/3/2007 7:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A host of celebrities, including Nick Lachey, A. J. Discala and MLB star Brady Anderson, are being sued by a woman claiming she was stiffed out of a lucrative basketball franchise.

Laura Brau claims last summer she entered into a contract with a company controlled by A. J. Discala, estranged husband of Jamie-Lynn Sigler. Under the deal, Brau would become acting president of "Hollywood Fame," a newly formed American Basketball Association team and, among other things, receive 10% of the stock in the franchise.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Brau claims Discala squeezed her out by giving 100% of the stock to other people, including Lachey. Brau claims Discala knew what he was doing, calling his alleged conduct "despicable, intentional, deceitful...with a willful and conscious disregard for Plaintiff's rights."

There are reports that Stacy Keibler, John Salley, and Wilmer Valderrama are also part-owners of the team; however, they were not named in the lawsuit.

Brau seeks a minimum of $1.25 million in compensatory damages. She also wants punitive damages.

If you look at the documents, Nick's name is 12th out of 13! AJ is listed first, but Nick's name is what is in the news. It seems like it is AJ's doing, not Nick.

Lachey's attorney Mitchell Schuster says his client is only named in the complaint because he is alleged to own a small percentage of the team, but Schuster says "that is not accurate and will be clarified in the coming weeks."
