Actor Brad Pitt sued by Plano woman accusing him of breach of contract


Actor Brad Pitt has been sued by a Plano woman who says he failed to show for paid appearances at charity fundraisers.

According to court documents filed in Collin County, Pitt approached the woman to assist him in fundraising for his foundation set up to help victim's in 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

She claims Pitt was paid $40,000 to appear at more than one fundraiser but she says he never showed. However, NBC-5 reports there's a possibility the woman was scammed by someone pretending to be Pitt.

The actor has filed court papers to have her lawsuit dismissed.
