Sure Vanessa Hudgens probably makes millions off her High School Musical royalties. But that doesn’t mean you can get away with stiffing her for $38,000! According to TMZ, the Sucker Punch star is on the hunt for a producer who ripped her off back in 2005.
Way before she had her big Disney Channel success, Vanessa was an up-and-coming child actress who believed her career was in need of “guidance.” Enter accused producer, Johnny Vieira.
Apparently, Vieira offered to help Hudgens land movie deals and never came through with his promise. And to make matters worse, he had allegedly been using her image to promote his business and rake in cash for himself.
But Vanessa’s now got the courts on her side, with a $38,800 verdict in her favor. The only problem is, she still needs find him and collect! But with TMZ backing her up, we imagine producer Johnny will quickly run out of places to hide.
