Orlando Bloom Sued By His Former Management Company

Orlando Bloom has been sued by his former management company for hundreds of thousands of dollars in commissions.
The Firm, which reps a number of big celebs, claims Bloom scored starring roles in 'Elizabethtown,' 'Haven,' 'Kingdom of Heaven,' and the sequels to 'Pirates of the Caribbean' while the company repped him. Bloom fired The Firm in July of this year and jumped to Brillstein-Grey Entertainment.
TMZ obtained the lawsuit filed on Monday (Nov. 14) in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Firm claims Bloom owes "no less than $660,000 in commissions" related to the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' sequels alone.
Bloom was managed by Aleen Keshishian, a former member of The Firm who left to become a partner at Brillstein-Grey. The suit claims Keshishian is personally behind the alleged wrongful withholding of some of the commissions. The Firm also filed a separate suit against Keshishian and Brillstein-Grey.
