Garth Brooks Involved In Lawsuit
According to a lawsuit filed by Garth Brooks former business partner, Lisa Sanderson, Garth is not a nice man. Lisa worked with Garth for over twenty years and claims that Brooks passes himself off as “a humble and highly principled ‘everyman’” — he’s actually a “paranoid, angry, deceitful and vindictive man who will turn against those closest to him on a dime.” OUCH! Sanderson alleges she was a successful TV producer whom Brooks lured to jump start his TV and movie career. She also claims Brooks was his own worst enemy, killing deals with Disney, Fox and others. Sanderson says Brooks torpedoed a bunch of great opportunities because of his unbridled megalomania. For example, she says Brooks was offered an acting gig to appear as a sniper in “Saving Private Ryan,” but he refused because “he wanted to be the star and was unwilling to share the limelight with … Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, and Edward Burns.” As for Sanderson, she says Brooks owes her money in salary, bonus and profits. Sanderson wants close to half a million ($425,000) in unpaid bonus and salary, as well as punitive damages.
