Veteran actor Bruce Willis has settled an extortion lawsuit brought by a childhood “friend” who allegedly asked Willis to pay him $100,000 plus a car or he would reveal childhood secrets to the media.
The Die Hard actor filed the suit last year against one Bruce DiMattia, citing that DiMattia was “was overcome by greed and jealous of his former friend’s success” & threatened ti disclose personal information about the famous actor unless Willis came through with the cask & the car. I wonder what kind of car he wanted. Was DiMattia a Porsche man or more of a Mini man? Looks like we’ll never know.
Willis reached a settlement with the other Bruce & the dispute has come to an end. Willis stated that the extortion was “amicably resolved.” Which means maybe DiMattia wanted a Lexus, but Willis gave him an Accord instead?
Paul Bloch, Willis’ publicist, revealed, “The filing of the lawsuit by Bruce Willis against Bruce DiMattia was based on a regrettable misunderstanding and was based on misinformation.
“Bruce Willis wishes Bruce DiMattia the best of luck in the future and Bruce DiMattia wishes him the same.”
Yep, he definitely got the Accord. Man, you gotta watch out for those childhood “friends”, they’ll bite you right in the kisser when you’re not looking. What a pal.
