Claire Forlani Sued By Art Dealer
Actress Claire Forlani may have played the girlfriend of an artist in one of my favorite movies, "Basquiat," but she's no fan of one art dealer. Forlani is being sued by art dealer Paul Rusconi after she sent out a mass email to friends saying that he sold her some fake pieces. Forlani's email said that he overcharged her on some Warhol pieces and also misrepresented other pieces as works by William Claxton and Keith Haring. Rusconi said he did nothing wrong and is seeking nearly $25 million in damages. Forlani's lawyer, Marty Singer, told TMZ that the lawsuit is "is absurd and totally without merit."
