London,(ANI): Lawyers for Michael Douglas ex-wife have accused the actor of being greedy as the Gordon Gekko character he plays in the Wall Street movies. Lawyers for Diandra said the star, 65, who has throat cancer, was trying to escape his responsibilities.
They branded him a tax cheat and claimed he and wife Catherine Zeta Jones had a 90-million-pound fortune, reports the Sun. Diandra is suing in New York for half the cash he will get from Wall Street: 'Money Never Sleeps", which opens next month.
In their 2000 divorce deal, she was granted half the proceeds from his work while they were married. Now she wants 50 per cent from the new movie because it features crooked financier Gekko, from the 1987 original. However, the Judgment was adjourned.
