Like he needs that!
Sitcom star Charlie Sheen is being dragged into a lawsuit brought in Los Angeles by an ex-Palm Beach socialite who claims that Sheen’s realtor reneged on paying her a commission on Sheen’s newest house!
Moira Fiore, 59, the mother of Sheen’s troubled ex-wife Brooke Mueller, claims in court papers that LaLa Land realtor Marty Trugman promised her 25 percent from his commission for finding a home suitable for the star of Anger Management.
Fiore claims she never got paid after Sheen settled down in 2011, and she wants Trugman to make good on his promise.
The lawsuit has been going through the Los Angeles County court system for nearly a year, according to records — and now, Sheen’s been subpoenaed to testify!
Fiore is said to be a multi-millionaire after she inherited a bundle from her elderly then-husband and construction tycoon Kenny Wolofsky. He died in 2003 shortly after a mysterious fall at his Palm Beach mansion.
By my calculation, Trugman’s commission on the $7 million-mansion that Fiore allegedly found would be $210,000.
And Fiore’s $52,500 share is a drop in the bucket when it comes to Palm Beach money, and probably much less than what her legal bills could end up totaling.
Fiore, who eventually married New York City lounge singer John Fiore, moved to Los Angeles two years ago when things between her daughter Brooke and Sheen were headed south.
The two were married in 2008 when Sheen still starred in Two and a Half Men. But both Sheen and Mueller, who had twins, have battled substance abuse problems. Sheen was arrested for holding a knife to Mueller’s throat on Christmas Day 2010. They were divorced six months later.
Neither Trugman nor Fiore returned calls for comment.
