Pamela Anderson denies responsibility for real estate deal failure
Washington: Pamela Anderson`s representative has lashed out at a countersuit filed by a real estate entrepreneur who claims that the actress failed to promote the sale of his condominiums in the Panorama Towers in Las Vegas.
The former ‘Baywatch’ star filed legal papers in February 2011, claiming she made the deal in 2006 with Laurence Hallier to promote his Las Vegas Panorama Towers development in return for one of the properties for free.
She also claimed Hallier agreed to hand her 1 million dollars in cash if the apartment wasn``t built in time.
Earlier this week Hallier countersued over Anderson``s alleged lack of promotion for the properties, insisting her failure to do so cost him 22.5 million dollars in unsold units.
Now the actress`` lawyer has slammed his allegations in the suit, and Hallier``s claims Anderson was his lover at the time of the deal.
"Pamela Anderson is not any more responsible for the failure of this real estate project than she is responsible for the 2008 real estate downturn or the collapse of Lehman Brothers,” Contactmusic quoted the attorney as telling Tmz.com.
"The counterclaim is an attempt at publicity, filed by a defendant who revelled in utterly false rumours that he was romantically involved with Ms. Anderson while she was promoting his failed real estate project in London, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas,” he added.
