Lisa Kudrow

Verdict Is In

'Friends' Star Must Pay $1.6 Mil For Screwing Ex-Manager

Lisa Kudrow screwed her ex-manager out of a small fortune in commissions ... so says an L.A. jury ... and now she owes him $1.6 million.

Manager Scott Howard sued back in 2008 -- a year after he and Kudrow parted ways -- claiming the actress still owed him a ton of money from her days on "Friends." 

Howard claimed he and Kudrow had an oral agreement ... that would give him a cut of her income ... but Kudrow disputed they had such an agreement.

Jurors sided with Howard ... because it hasn't been Lisa's day, her week, her month, or even her year.

Lisa's lawyer says the actress plans to appeal the verdict.

What kind of business manager accepts a verbal agreement without following it up in writing. Gimme a break.

Friends was and is huge internationally. She's estimated to have earned over $45 mill #$MELLYCA$H

I'm a little confused. Why would a manager just have a VERBAL contract with his celebrity client that amounts to over a million? Something doesn't make sense.

After reading comments from the "peanut gallery" most hate her not on the law suit but because of her status. A jury probably had the same bias. Did Lisa really think she could get justice. If you want justice stay out of court.

As Goldwynn so eloquently stated, "A verbal contract is not worth the paper its written on."

Miss Cleo and I had an oral agreement too; she guaranteed me that I'd win 20 million dollars...

I just cant help think of the Friends episode where Monica and Phoebe did a catering job and the client would not pay up and Phoebe forced the issue...

This huge lawsuit was awarded based on an oral agreement? Since when is any oral contract binding and legal? Oral contracts are a farce and everyone knows this!
