Accused of Being a Big Stiff

8/11/2008 9:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vanessa Hudgens sent a photo of herself to a guy and inscribed it with this: "Johnny, thank you for everything, without you, I would be no where, we will make it BIG- Vanessa Hudgens. Sweet." Now Johnny is suing her.

According to the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Johnny Vieira claims in May 2005, he and Hudgens entered into a production agreement to launch Vanessa's career. Vieira claims they had a deal to "share equally" in the fruits of their labor. He says the agreement was approved by the court because she was a minor.

Vieira says after "High School Musical" became a hit, she dumped him and they entered into a settlement agreement. He says she's been violating that deal and owes him more than $2 million.

Johnny on the spot is suing for more than $5 mil.

I'm not an attorney (surprise, surprise) but I know minors can back out of contracts and nothing can be done about it. That's why adult co-signers are often required. I don't know anything about how the law works in entertainment agreements or whatever it's called. What would court approved mean? If a minor can break a contract then that makes no difference I would think. Anyone know, can someone call a friend or relative? Harvey Levin should answer this for all of us fine readers.

If you'll all notice the bottom left of THIS PHOTO - It HAS THE LOGO of that Vieira guy's company on it (JOTS Productions) which indicates that SHE WAS IN FACT WORKING WITH HIM at the time she signed the photo and HANDED IT TO HIM (in his recording studio, where they recorded and Vieira negotiated her deals with the likes of Disney.) That Vieira "guy" is the real deal.

He is a lying sack of crap. He is just trying to extort money from a sweet helpless girl. #9 is most likely "That Vieira Guy" writing something positive about his worthless self. If you are such a business man go handle your biz and forget about the girl. Stalker. Whats two or five million to a baller like you? Liar. Spend the rest of your life telling your "story" (the lie) to everyone that will listen. Trying to make them feel sorry for your pathetic self hoping they will buy you a drink. Johnny you will forever be the gay guy with the Vanessa Hudgens flyer telling everying this is a contract while you cry in your beer. Join the rest of the star struck losers in LA telling everyone how you were ripped off when the fact is you are a rip off. Pathetic.

I dont' know about all this CRAP all I know is that she's NOT PERFECT and for a CHILD star where are her parents? Why we're they NOT involved? Taking nude pictures for your boyfriend when your 16 or something like that? Real nice. yea... she's a sweet innocent girl. Sure! Not saying that she's going to win this one, but she's no sweet little girl.

So in 2005 this guy was dealing with her when she was 15-16? Where were/are her parents in all of this? I'll bet she's keeping all the TV executives happy with "favors" just to keep her career going. She's a little hoochie mama, no?
