Cerio claims actor owes $1 million in commission
Matt LeBlanc’s former manager is suing the actor for allegedly failing to pay commissions due her for the past seven years.In a lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Camille Cerio says she was LeBlanc’s manager from April 1994 until the end of 1995, and during that time signed a contract with him that entitled her to commissions on income he earned from “Friends” and any derivatives of the show, such as “Joey.” According to the lawsuit, LeBlanc paid her those commissions until 2000, but has not paid her anything since then. Cerio said LeBlanc, as recently as last year, orally promised to give her an accounting of all money owed since the last payment in 2000, and to pay all the money owed. However, she said, no further money has been forthcoming. Cerio said she does not know exactly how much money is owed her, but estimates it is more than $1 million. Her suit asks for a full accounting of all money earned by LeBlanc from “Friends” and “Joey” since 2000, and a court order for payment of all unpaid commissions, plus court costs and expenses.
