Liza Minnelli pays bodyguard $238K a year

Come on, I've been in Hollywood for over 60 years. No one pays a bodyguard $238,000 a year unless he's expected to do more than bodyguard. What the hell did the guy expect, and with the fake hips, how hard could it have been for him?

Boy, when it rains, it pours for our very own Sally Bowles.

I love how they give out her street address as well. If I was in Manhattan right now, I'd totally do a walk-by. Liza and I aren't on the same level at Academy functions, so we're not friends or anything.

Liza was dumb, too. Norma never gave Joe any cash money. In fact, she even let his car get repossessed. And let's face it, once he moved into the main house from over the gayrage, I'm sure she let the rent go on that apartment of his, too. No wonder Liza's having money problems! Liza needs to get back in touch with the classics.

Though I have to admit, tuberoses aside, Norma was much more physically appealing than Liza and she wasn't like an alcoholic or drug fiend or anything. And she turned her violence inward, too. So Joe had a much more pleasant situation, though I bet Max liked to watch.

It's super sad, and probably mean to say, but I think Liza did her best work when she was high.

Bodyguard Says Minnelli Made Him Have Sex

1 hour, 33 minutes ago Entertainment - AP


By SAMUEL MAULL, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - Liza Minnelli (news)'s bodyguard claims the Oscar-winning actress made him have sex with her in order to keep his job, according to recently unsealed court documents.

The allegations are detailed in M'Hammed Soumayah's $100 million lawsuit against the entertainer. Minnelli's lawyers did not return calls for comment Wednesday. But in a court document, one of her lawyers said Soumayah had "commenced this action in a quick sand of untruths and misstatements" and accused him of a "shakedown" of her client.


In the lawsuit, Soumayah, 56, accused Minnelli of assault and battery, breach of contract, withholding payment for services rendered and sexual harassment.


Although the suit was filed Sept. 30 in Manhattan's state Supreme Court and sealed by Justice Barbara Kapnick, she unsealed it late Tuesday over the objections of Minnelli's lawyers.


Also Tuesday, Minnelli, 58, sued Soumayah for $250,000, alleging breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. The two-page filing contained no details.


In the newly unsealed court papers, Soumayah, married and the father of two, says he began working for Minnelli in 1994 and was paid $238,000 a year.


While working for her, Soumayah was coerced by Minnelli to have sex, his court papers say. "After many repeated attempts by Minnelli to compel (Soumayah) to have sex with her, (he) eventually succumbed," the papers say.


He also alleges she beat him "repeatedly."


"Fearing loss of his lucrative job, plaintiff tolerated Minnelli's violent outbursts and did not complain about them to her or anyone else," the suit says.


Soumayah's court papers say he signed a confidentiality agreement in 2003 because he was threatened with firing if he refused. He said it was to be in effect only while he worked for the star.


In an affidavit explaining that agreement, Minnelli says: "I am not ungrateful for my celebrity status. But I think I deserve, as does everyone, some right to privacy."


The affidavit, filed in an effort to persuade the judge to keep the bodyguard's suit sealed, asks the judge to enforce the agreement and "protect me from scandal, which is clearly being used to completely embarrass me."


Minnelli's estranged husband, David Gest, has also accused Minnelli of assault in a $10 million lawsuit against her. Minnelli is suing Gest for allegedly stealing $2 million from her, and both are suing each other for divorce.








So now Liza's rapist? What kind of man would claim to be raped by Liza? I know somep eople are desperate for money but sheesh

Blowing out someone else's candle does not make yours shine brighter.

Hey Hel, I know it's a little bit off topic, but I watched "Strange Cargo" (1940) last night for the first time- Gable's first pic after Gone With The Wind, and the last film he made with Joan Crawford. IT WAS TERRIFIC! Chock full of campy lines, like this one from Crawford to the Peter Lorre character (who is basically a pimp following her across the south Pacific):

"why is it all the men die, and the pigs live forever?"

Why would she even need a bodyguard, unless it's for the sex? I mean she's a mean lil bitch anyway, I hear if she's got 2 pints of anything in her she could take on Mike Tyson, George Foreman and Muhammad Ali all at the same time.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

If I was some beefy dope who had to work as a bodyguard, I'm screw her all over Tuesday every day if I was making $238,000 a year and hang on to that ride until the bitter end. Sorry, but that's A LOT of money and it's not like he's guarding Salman Rushdie or President Bush, you know, are there really loads of people out to harm or kill her?

It's really fantastic- I had no idea how good it was- she sarcastically calls the Peter Lorre character "pig" throughout the whole movie, and at times it had me in stitches! Plus, the Gable/Crawford team was one of the all-time best in my opinion- I also watched the original "Possessed" (1931, another Gable/Crawford pic) just before Strange Cargo- my brother watched it with me, and he had no idea Joan was so beautiful when she was younger- simply breathtaking in the early 30s with those fedoras and thin penciled eyebrows.
