Firm end to Bloom suit

Tenpercentery resolves issues with thesp, manager

The Firm has resolved all its litigation with Orlando Bloom, his manager Aleen Keshishian and her current employer, Brillstein-Grey.

The Firm filed twin lawsuits in November against Bloom and Keshishian, who defected to Brillstein-Grey last July (Daily Variety, Nov. 15)

Suit against Bloom alleged that the Firm and Bloom had an oral agreement under which the thesp would pay a 10% commission on all gross compensation derived from projects he entered into while being managed by the Firm. Suit further alleged that Brillstein-Grey had collected $200,000 of the $600,000 total commissions from the film work Bloom got while still at the Firm. The Firm’s suit against Keshishian and Brillstein-Grey alleged that they actively solicited Bloom to defect while Keshishian was still employed by the Firm.

A statement issued jointly by the parties said that the Firm withdrew its suit against Bloom after learning that he had paid his commissions in full to an escrow account specified by Keshishian pending the resolution of the dispute. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
