Former '90210' actor sues ex for 'stealing' $200,000

By Erica Stapleton,

Looks like actor Brian Austin Green has some drama in his life aside from what was scripted in the original 90210.

The former 90210 star is suing former co-star, ex-girlfriend and mother to his 9-year-old son, Kassius, Vanessa Marcil-Giovinazzo, for failing to pay him back the large sum of money she reportedly owes him. While they were dating, Green lent Marcil-Giovinazzo various $50,000 increments totaling over $200,000. The loans began in 2000.

Green filed the lawsuit against Marcil-Giovinazzo on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming that "the monies were not gifts" and that she promised to pay him back. His complaint claims breach of contract and breach of oral agreement in addition to other damages.

Marcil-Giovinazzo, who also starred in General Hospital, failed to pay Green when he asked for reimbursement in November 2011, despite Green's assertion that his ex promised to promptly pay him back when he requested repayment.

Green and Marcil-Giovinazzo starred in the original Beverly Hills, 90210 together and began dating after meeting on set. After parting ways, Green married Transformers actress Megan Fox in June 2010 and Marcil-Giovinazzo wed CSI: NY actor Carmine Giovinazzo the next month.
