Applehead Pictures Deal Affirmed
2 December, 2010
A New York appeals court says Revlon cosmetics magnate Ronald Perelman owes more than $3 million to a movie production company he started with ex-wife Ellen Barkin. The ruling Thursday upholds a lower court decision.
The actress and Perelman divorced in 2006. During the marriage, the couple and Barkin’s brother George launched Applehead Pictures. A decision by the state Appellate Division says the billionaire Revlon head has to fork over the $4.3 million he agreed to pay the “Sea of Love” star’s production company, despite his contentions that he didn’t have to because she’d violated their divorce deal.
In a unanimous decision, the appeals court said the agreements Perelman signed with Barkin and her production company are completely separate – and there’s no evidence she violated the divorce agreement anyway.
