Eva Longoria Sued -- Alleged Beso Restaurant Scam

1/10/2011 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eva Longoria is being sued for more than $4,000,000 -- after a guy who invested in Eva's restaurant, Beso, claims the actress ran an illegal scheme to use the eatery to fatten her wallet. 

Eva Longoria Scam

The suit is kind of technical, but the long story short ... Eva's accused of lending $1 mil to the company behind Beso ... with the agreement that she'd get paid back at an astronomical amount of interest ... racking up $4.6 million over 2 years. 

The person who filed the lawsuit today in L.A. County Superior Court, an investor named Mali Nachum, claims Eva's deal not only violates California law -- but it cuts into his percent of the company.

Mali wants more than $4 mil in damages.

UPDATE: A rep for Longoria tells TMZ, "This is a desperate reaction in a lawsuit without merit by prior partners who, through their unauthorized and fraudulent actions, required Eva Longoria to seek reorganization protection through bankruptcy court in Nevada."

I want to sue make-up companies for false advertising Eva -- she looks horribly average without her face and eyes caked with makeup.

Mali and Ronan are scam artists. I worked for the restaurant and nightclub and watched them run it into the ground. they wanted to do everything their way and they were clueless to how to do it properly

Beso is a beautiful, elegant restaurant. Music video "Made in Hollywood", there. It was a great experience for cast and crew. Lilly Vivona was the MakeUp Artist on this project
