Haven't done a Hollywood & Crime post in a little while. Here's the first of 2012 :)

Keshia Knight Pulliam (remember cute little Rudy from the Cosby Show; she's all grown up now) has been sued by her former talent agency (Green & Associates) for allegedly not paying them their agreed-upon 10% commission from all the work she did on Tyler Perry's House Of Payne.

You know, I didn't even realize she was on that show; then again, I don't watch it.

The suit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday, and THR got a copy of it. The agency claims they got the role for Pulliam during the time the represented her from 2007 to 2010 - a term that included her stint on House Of Payne.

She reportedly made between $7,500 and $20,000 per episode, and given that Perry's shows shoot more episodes per season than a standard network series (up to 50 episodes per season), she would have collected a nice chunk of change there, and they want their 10% cut - or, as the filing claims, more than $100,000 in unpaid commissions, and $250,000 in future commissions.

Pulliam fired Green & Associates via email in July 2011, to join rival agency APA - so says the court filing - and they've since beeng trying to get Pulliam to pay up what she owes them, leading up to this lawsuit.

No response from the actress yet.

Let's get ready to rumble...
