Geraldo

SUED

Over Fox News Deal

Geraldo
is being sued for allegedly stiffing his longtime talent agent who claims to have negotiated a sweet deal with Fox News Network.

According to the lawsuit ... obtained by TMZ ... the William Morris Endeavor Agency repped Geraldo for nearly a quarter of a century, guiding him "as he rose from news correspondent to a household name."

The suit claims William Morris renegotiated Geraldo's Fox deal a few years back -- a deal that ran through 2011, but Geraldo allegedly just stopped paying the 10% commission 2 years before the deal ended.

So here's the upshot.  Geraldo doesn't like his agent, which puts him in one of the most non-exclusive clubs in America.

Geraldo fired back at the lawsuit on his radio show.

At Geraldo's age, the only way he could stiff his agent is if he took a handful of Viagra.

There's a problem here    

Geraldo: At one time he was a respectable news correspondent. He then became a forerunner of Jerry Springer. He then decided to do a live special on the opening of Al Capone's vault ... and we all know what a bust that was. He then somehow ended up on Fox news, and recently decided to do a naked chest selfie to show how virile he is in his 70s. Time to think about giving up the ghost, Geraldo. Just sayin'

Everytime I see Geraldo's face I want to laugh. Even hearing his name. He acts like he has no real self awareness at all. & he's so worried about his image he will verbally guess what viewers are thinking & try to change that idea. Like his life depends on us seeing him the way he wants to be seen. As some tough, stubborn guy that digs & digs to get to the TRUTH!! He really wants your respect. Lol. Something sooooo funny about the clueless types. He try hard!! He try real hard!! Bwahahahahahah!!

There was nothing in Al Capone's vault. But it wasn't Geraldo's fault - Homer J. Simpson, songwriter extraordinaire.
