Someone's Pissed

At Salma Hayek

8/20/2008 8:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Turns out Salma Hayek is her brother's keeper -- and now that a bitter employee filed a lawsuit against his investment venture gone wrong, Salma might have to end up paying through the nose.

A guy who used to co-manage a company owned by Salma (who has less than a 1% stake) and Sami Hayek has filed a nasty lawsuit against the siblings after after their investment hit the skids -- but this one gets really personal.

In the suit, filed moments ago in L.A. County Superior Court, Alejandro Artigas claims Sami, "has been guilty of ... fraud, mismanagement, and/or abuse of authority."

Alejandro is asking a judge to dissolve it and appoint a receiver to run the company.

No one is talking. Bottom line: Someone's really pissed at Salma Hayek.

Sami's attorney, Bob Weiss, released this statement: "It was an investment deal that was no good for anyone, and we'll fight the lawsuit vigorously."

Have you ever noticed how Selma's accent gets thicker and thicker as time goes on? It sounds so fake, maybe partly real, but mostly FAKE. We ALL lose some of our accents over time, but not her and Penelope! I can't stand either of them, don't know why, just hate 'em!

Please    

Whomever it is, they're not pissed at Salma. They're pissed at her brother but are very happy that Salma's purse strings are attached.

Pretty big accusations, but celebrities ( whatever their race) and their siblings too often get away with being unprofessional and abusive because they have too many people willing to kiss their ass. I have heard of more than just afew other disgruntled and abused employees of an A- list celebrity
