Before ex-girlfriend Pamela Seals could file a palimony lawsuit Nov. 9 in L.A., Burt Reynolds sued the Tampa barmaid claiming she had attempted blackmail. Reynolds, 68, says Seals, 48, threatened to falsely accuse him of mental and physical abuse (including stomping on her toes) in their 10-year relationship if he didn't share his estate, while Seals says he reneged on a promise to buy her a $500,000 condo after they broke up earlier this year.
