Actress Emeraude Toubia is facing legal action from her former talent managers who are seeking a cut of her earnings.
Bosses at Palomera Productions allege they entered into an exclusive management deal with the Latin star in 2014, entitling them to 20 per cent of all of her acting earnings. She moved from Florida to Los Angeles earlier this year (15), telling them she wanted to pursue her education, but instead reportedly signed with another talent firm and landed a new gig on upcoming TV series Shadowhunters. According to TMZ.com, when Palomera executives confronted Toubia about her existing contract, she claimed her signature had been forged.
They are now suing for a cut of all earnings since her move to Hollywood, including her wages from Shadowhunters, which is due to premiere on ABC Family network in January (16). She is starring as Isabelle Lightwood in the fantasy drama, based on The Mortal Instruments book series by author Cassandra Clare.
