Brad Pitt’s charity is being sued in a class action lawsuit claiming that his charity built faulty homes. The actor has responded saying that he is not to blame and it wasn’t his job to provide habitable homes.
According to Fox News:
Brad Pitt only promised people new houses — it wasn’t his job to make sure they were good houses, or so he says in a new court filing.
The Blast reports that Pitt’s attorneys have filed paperwork “demanding” that a class-action lawsuit filed against Pitt and his charity, Make It Right, be tossed out.
The organization built homes following Hurricane Katrina in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans for people who had been left homeless by the hurricane.
The new filings claim it was not Pitt’s responsibility to ensure the homes were properly built.
Reports also indicate that Pitt has spent millions of dollars to correct the issue, and are asking that the suit be tossed out while they continue to make it right.
