Supermarket Claims Burton Can't Read His Bills

8/9/2009 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Levar BurtonA fancy grocery store in Los Angeles took a look at their books ... and realized LeVar Burton owed them a bunch of money.

According to a lawsuit filed last month, the "Reading Rainbow" host owes Gelson's a little over $2,000 -- plus attorney's fees.

Burton's had an account with them since 1990, but Gelson's claims he hasn't paid his bill since December 2008.

An credit account for a supermarket? If you don't have money to buy your groceries there you need to shop somewhere else.

Lamar is a nice guy. It's probably some sort of honest misunderstanding.

Maybe the interface of his VISOR is broken. What a deadbeat. Imagine if all us poor folk could get a supermarket tab.

Michael Jackson didn't pay his bills either, according to reports. He was allegedly known for stiffing people. Now, he's the stiff.

Nothing nice about Levar. He is a Hollywood phony just like the rest of them. If you think his nice guy image isn't cultivated you are an idiot.

It's interesting...don't rich folks have accountants and business managers that pay their bills for them? If not perhaps more should go that way....
