Brad Pitt has landed in another legal trouble. The actor is already tackling the custody battle of his children with ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The handsome hunk has now been sued for USD 100,000 by a Texas woman.
Kelli Christina says Brad got in contact with her two years ago about raising money for some charity events and their 'relationship got personal' too. She says they even discussed getting married. The entire episode appears to be a case of catfishing.
In his reply to the court, Brad has denied ever being in contact with Kelli. He says he never asked her for payments, nor did he authorize anyone to do so on his behalf.
The actor's legal team has responded to claims and said that Kelli has been tricked by a scammer online who pretended to be Pitt.
The team filed a motion at a Texas court where they said that Brad had never dealt with Kelli and filed for the case to be dismissed.
As per Kelli's lawsuit, she sent the actor $40,000 over a period of two years with the promise of him making appearances at fundraiser events. He did not show up at any. She decided to sue him but his team told her that she is mistaken about their 'correspondence'. She still went ahead with her lawsuit, reports TMZ.
