Poppy Montgomery

Agents Claim She Royally Screwed Them

0623-poppy-montgomery-UTA-tmz-01
Poppy Montgomery can thank her powerful agents for a TV deal that pays her nearly $100K PER EPISODE ... and she can show some gratitude by paying them ... according to a new lawsuit.

United Talent Agency filed the lawsuit ... claiming Montgomery stiffed them to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars ... by not paying commissions for  "Unforgettable."

UTA says Montgomery owes 10% commission for season 2 -- when she raked in $93K an episode -- and for season 3, where her salary was hiked to $97,340 an episode.

The agency figures Poppy owes them at least $248,222 ... but here's the rub.  UTA says the promise to pay was oral.  Hmmmm.

A rep for the actress says that UTA -- her FORMER agency --  did nothing for Poppy for several years.

Isn't it understood under this topic? Same story over and over. Understand it's under the sheets or it's not. And proceed accordingly. Anything else is absurd.

Lol. UTA must have some slubs working if they did not put that into writing. Most agencies have written contracts and the commission is taken off the top of the paychecks.

They should have had her sign a standard contact. If they are professionals. They should have had one for her to sign.

Rumour is she ditched her husband after she got her American citizenship, so this could be a habit of use them until they are no longer useful

Oral contracts are for suckers. Get it in writing, or it didn't happen.
