Hairspray Star's Managers Sue for Salary Slice
Margaret Karaszek and Michael Ostrowski, partners in Morgit Management, formally lodged their complaint in New York's State Supreme Court, claiming that Blonsky, 20, and her mother, Karen Blonsky, breached their contract by not cutting them in for their standard 20 percent of the young star's overnight success, reports Newsday.
Among Morgit's claims: Blonsky was "unknown" when she landed the role of Tracy Turnblad; Ostrowski and Karaszek sent a tape of Blonsky to the film's casting team; and they even drove Blonsky into Manhattan for an audition during a snowstorm.
Blonsky reportedly was selected for the role six months after her contract with the firm expired. Morgit's attorneys maintain Karen Blonsky verbally agreed to renew the contract for at least two more years.
Blonsky's attorney declined comment.
