Sylvester Stallone sues contractor for swindling him of over 1m dollars

April 10, 2012 - Washington

Sylvester Stallone has filed a lawsuit against a contractor, who he alleges cheated him out of over 1 million dollars in a home repair deal.

The 65-year-old actor claims he was victimised by Mohamed Hadid after reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump recommended his name to him.

The legendary actor has labelled Hadid an "unscrupulous, unlicensed predator" in legal papers.

Stallone's lawyer Marty Singer claims his client hired Hadid to work on his Los Angeles mansion in 2009, but he was left with "inexpensive, damaged deteriorating and uneven cabinetry and malfunctioning appliances" among other things, TMZ reported.

Stallone alleges the contractor also installed an inoperable and unsafe fire pit and an incomplete and unsafe air conditioning unit, stating, "Far from the top quality job promised, Hadid's work was riddled with defects, abysmal quality and poor workmanship."

The movie star is suing for his money back, plus damages.
