A healthcare CEO Kelli Christina in Texas is attempting to sue anti-Trump actor Brad Pitt after he allegedly seduced her then ripped her off for tens of thousands of dollars.
Pitt’s representatives however have countered the claims by saying that the person Christina had a ‘relationship’ with was not Pitt at all but rather a online scammer who was impersonating him.
As The New York Post reports:
Kelli Christina, a health care CEO from Plano, Texas, claims in court papers that she paid $40,000 for the actor to make five appearances at events that she arranged for his charity Make It Right Foundation, which constructs new homes for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
She even claimed that the pair developed such a close relationship that they had “discussions of marriage,” court docs seen by The Post said.
Pitt’s lawyer claim, however, that Christina was cruelly tricked by a cyber scammer who pretended to be the “Ocean’s Eleven” star, according to court papers.
Pitt’s legal team filed a motion to have the case dismissed:
“Rather, as [Christina] herself has acknowledged, it appears [Christina’s] communications about any agreement were apparently with one or more individuals unlawfully posing as — but not in any way affiliated with — defendants online,” the motion to dismiss states.
