Garth Brooks: Sued By Former Business Partner

Posted Monday April 15, 2013 2:00 PM GMT

At one point, he was the biggest name in country music, but now it seems Garth Brooks has some serious legal woes.

Former business partner Lisa Sanderson has filed a lawsuit against the “Friends in Low Places” singer, claiming that he lured her away from her successful career in order to manage his acting pursuits, most of which he torpedoed himself.

Sanderson calls Brooks a "paranoid, angry, deceitful and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime."

She also noted that Garth ditched a part in “Saving Private Ryan” because "he wanted to be the star and was unwilling to share the limelight with ... Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, and Edward Burns."

As a result of Brooks’ nuttiness, Sanderson wants $425,000 in unpaid funds and legal fees.
