Legal Matters
Entertainment manager Kevin Peck, 36, filed a $30 million breach of contract lawsuit against the R&B group Dru Hill on March 20 in Baltimore. Peck claims that a 1996 agreement entitled him to a percentage of the group's income from its three albums, as well as from the members' solo releases, including Sisqó's 2000 single "Thong Song." A rep for the band had no comment.

Recuperating
Actress Lynn Redgrave, 60, recently underwent surgery for breast cancer in New York City. The two-time Oscar nominee, who is continuing what her rep calls "encouraging treatments," still expects to be able to appear in the Off-Broadway show Talking Heads, which opens April 6.

Split
Former Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry, 57, and his wife of 20 years, Lucy, 42, were granted a divorce on March 21 in London on the grounds that Lucy had "admitted to adultery." The couple have four sons.

Sued

New York City-based G&I Construction recently sued Liza Minnelli, 56, and her husband, David Gest, 49, for allegedly refusing to pay a $138,000 bill. G&I lawyer Leonard Catanzaro said the couple didn't settle their account even though "G&I properly performed each and every obligation" in renovating the duo's Manhattan apartment. A rep for the couple had no comment about the suit....

On March 6 in L.A., Tears of the Sun director Antoine Fuqua, 37, and his wife, actress Lela Rochon (Any Given Sunday), 38, were sued for malicious prosecution and intentional infliction of emotional distress by Tanya Evans, 30, who claims she had a 10-month affair with Fuqua in 2001 and 2002. Evans, a personal trainer, alleges that after they broke up, Fuqua repeatedly threatened her and her 13-year-old daughter and that the couple instigated false harassment charges against her. (Evans was found not guilty in November 2002.) A lawyer for Fuqua and Rochon denies all the allegations and called the lawsuit part of "a vicious campaign" by Evans to harass the couple.

Trouble
Actor Anthony Michael Hall (Sixteen Candles), 33, was sued by Chubb Insurance of Canada on March 14 in Vancouver for allegedly failing to divulge that he suffers from bipolar affective disorder—a psychological condition that caused him to miss several days of shooting on USA's The Dead Zone in May 2001. According to the suit, filming of the TV series came to a halt after Hall became ill and was briefly hospitalized. A rep for Hall refused to comment on the lawsuit.
