Bart Simpson Actress Sued Over Fiance's Debt

9/21/2010 9:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy Cartwright -- the voice of Bart Simpson -- is a defendant in a lawsuit involving her fiance's suicide, a failed construction project, and the Church of Scientology ... this according to documents obtained by TMZ.

In the suit, the American Safety Casualty Insurance Company claims a construction company run by Stephen Brackett -- Nancy's fiance at the time -- was hired to fix up a restaurant in 2008.  ASCIC issued an insurance policy to Brackett to cover the work ... and Nancy agreed to cover ASCIC's costs if anything went wrong.

ASCIC claims Brackett only did a portion of the work and "diverted contract funds" to the Church of Scientology, in which both he and Nancy were members.  ASCIC says that when the project was halfway done, Brackett committed suicide and his company folded.

ASCIC claims it had to fork over roughly $260,000 to complete the project ... and that Nancy is refusing to cover the expenses, as promised.

ASCIC is suing her for the 260k plus a whole lot more.

Hope they got that in writing. Anyway, she makes more than that for a single episode of the Simpsons so she'll be able to cover it no problem unless Xenu attacks.

She should not be liable for this if he committed suicide. This is sad.

She signed on as a responsible party - she's gotta pay the piper.

But,the Scientolo-nuts will probably go all "fair game" on ASCIC.

Puzzled........    

Why did he need an insurance policy if she was covering it? This doesn't make sense to me. Does anyone have a possible reason?

Looks like the Cult of $cientology is still up to it's old tricks. Why is this cult allowed to continue?

Beware ASCIC for "fair game".
