Matt's Former Manager

Wants Friendly Money!

8/27/2007 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed today by Camille Cerio, who says she's owed big bucks by Matt LeBlanc!


In the suit, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Cerio says she acted as LeBlanc's manager from 1994 to 1995. In a letter filed with the lawsuit, dated April 4, 1994, LeBlanc directs that "a check in the amount of 15% of the gross compensation for pilot and series derived from 'Friends Like Us'" be made payable to Cerio. "Friends Like Us" was the original title of NBC's hit series, "Friends."

Cerio says Matt told her that her services would no longer be needed in 1995, but she claims he continued to call her for career advice well into 1998. Cerio says Matt, as proved by the signed letter, owes her in excess of $1 million bucks.

Cerio is demanding LeBlanc open up his books and show her the money ... proving just how much he made from "Friends" and its ill-fated spinoff, "Joey."

A rep for LeBlanc told us, "In a land of meritless lawsuits, this is the king of all cases without merit."

Ooh, snap!

Pay your bills Joey. You don't work for free and neither does anyone else. Pay up and shut up.

who really cares about Matt anymore? he is an adulterer and a piece of crap actor who only made it big because he was part of ensemble cast, but proved his "non-talent" when his show bombed. Hey, Matt, "How you doin'?"

wasted days and wasted nights    

It seems to me that he should abide by the dictates of his 1994 letter--and a note of thanks for her role in his success would be a nice 'friends are friends forever' gesture.

I always thought that Matthew looked like he has Down Syndrome...cuz he is one funny lookin' dude.

Although Friends did have it's funny moments, it mostly sucked big time.

Is it true that he is gay? Noooh!!! Not my little Joey! He is always going to be the innocent little Joey for me. It may sound like I don't know the difference between reality and TV shows, but Matt LaBlanc was so good as Joey! He wil always be Joey to most of his fans.

Don The Dog #28. If you want news go to CNN.COM or ABC or NBC this is a celebrity
gossip site. What in the world is wrong with all of you people? Besides if you paid for
this site than you can complain otherwise, just shut the hell up!

This is news to us that a money hungry slut is trying to accuse a very good looking guy of
sexually harrasing her! She must have seduced him ! He has a choice of really good
looking woman who would just love to sleep with him. He is no Andrew Lustre who
lustfully raped so many woman.

It's woman like her who give us ladies a bad name. Because of her, people won't believe
other women who really get sexually harrased, that can't get people to believe them. It takes a very shameless person to accuse someone falsely.
