Randy Quaid to Lawyer --

You Betrayed Me

4/23/2010 9:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_randy_quaid_EX_GettyRandy Quaid claims the man he trusted as his business manger and lawyer betrayed him by engaging in "gossip mongering."

Quaid and wife Evi filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- in which the couple claims they hired Lloyd Braun, who runs an entertainment website that has run stories on the Quaids.

According to the suit, Braun, an attorney, sealed numerous business deals for Randy and became a close friend of the family. 

The suit claims Braun -- in his position at the website -- inappropriately capitalized on his relationship with the Quaids for his own financial benefit by posting photos and information about the couple.

The Quaids are in the middle of a criminal mess after allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 bill at a resort near Santa Barbara.

The Quaids allege Braun also refuses to fully account for the profits from various films and other business deals Braun negotiated on their behalf.

We left messages for Braun. So far, no word.

UPDATE:  Braun's attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, "The alleged facts are palpably untrue.  Lloyd
Braun hasn't represented these people for more than a decade and the files were turned over to other entertainment lawyers when Lloyd left the practice of law."

Lloyd Braun is a hero in Queens. Well, for those parents who don't know he is a lunatic. I heard he once made up all of the sales of computers from the Constanza's garage. But, in his defense, so did George.

Maybe Randy Quaid hasn't realized more than a decade has passed since pretty much anything of relevance has happened in his life, ergo his confusion about legal representation.

Lloyd Braun is not a lawyer nor a business manager - he runs a production company called BermanBraun which he started with Gail Berman. He used to run Brillstein Grey with Brad Grey before Grey left to run Paramount. Possible he represented Randy there, but he was NEVER a business manager. Harvey, you run a celebrity gossip blog. Leave the real entertainment news blogging to Nikki Finke

[did jesus have a business 'manger'?]...i think the real quaid zone is somewhere between the robotdroid in 'pluto nash', the drunk cropduster in 'indy day', the horse thief in 'missouri breaks', and the dork cousin in the 'vacation' movies w/chevy-bevy...

I think that Randy Quaid is just basically broke and trying to get money out of anybody that he can. It's sad! To make matters worse, he really stinks as an actor!
