This is no laughing matter: Comedy stars and brothers Shawn and Keenen Ivory Wayans are being sued.
According to law firm S&E Azriliant, the Wayans brothers owe them more than $60,000. The brothers hired the firm in 2005 for managing taxes and creation of corporations, according to documents. The firm says the brothers began “dodging” payments in 2008, reports The New York Daily News.
S & E Azriliant claims “Keenen owes $21,825 … and Shawn owes $22K. Additionally, they owe another $20,200 together,” reports TMZ.
S&E Azriliant filed the suit in Manhattan Supreme Court. The firm wants the money it’s due plus interest.
Now we know the Wayans brothers have the cash, so we wonder if there is something else going on. After all between just these two of the mega successful siblings, they have such hit films as White Chicks, Don’t Be A Menace To South Central, Scary Movie, I’m Gonna Git You Sucka and the groundbreaking In Living Color TV series between them. You can catch Keenen on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Shawn is still doing stand up.
