The actress Valerie Harper faces about $2 million in litigation brought against her by the Broadway producer of her show. She has been accused of hiding the fact that she had brain cancer while on a TV show thereby harming its future prospects.

Valerie Harper was diagnosed with brain cancer and it was declared to be a terminal illness. However, she was later on told that the cancer was in remission. She managed to pull through although the Sword of Damocles still hung over her head by a single hair strand. 

However, things have become rather complicated in her life of late. The producer of her show, Looped has sued the actress for a whopping $2 million. 

According to TMZ (via DailyMail), "Matthew Lombardo has filed a lawsuit for $2m claiming the 74-year-old performer intentionally failed to notify them that the cancer had returned forcing them to have to find a last minute replacement."

This occurred after Valerie herself sued Lombardo for not paying her fully for her services on his TV show. Lombardo claims that Valerie hid the fact that she had cancer. 

According to him, she slurred many lines during the show and yet never revealed her terminal illness. At the last moment when the disease became public knowledge, it was too late and a replacement was next to impossible. 

Valerie showed some of the symptoms on stage when she began to have difficulty remembering her lines. She also started having slurred speech which was clearly an impediment. 

When the facts about the deadly malady came out in the open, Lombardo had to face the headache of finding a substitute. He claims it cost him close to half a million dollars to search for a suitable actress that would act in lieu of Valerie. 

Valerie had played the part of legendary actress Tallulah Bankhead in the drama series Looped. A year ago, the doctors gave her only three months to live since she had terminal cancer. But it turns out she is still alive and well although she is not exactly out of the red zone just yet. 

 

It appears that this lawsuit filed by Lombardo is one of the most humanly indecent and materialistically vulgar ever to hit the media’s attention in the United States. Whoever thought that getting cancer is a crime that when hidden ought to be sued to the amount of $2 million.
