Kelsey Grammer Involved In $100 Million Scam!

Kelsey Grammer

Kelsey Grammer has just been named as a defendant in a $100 million dollar lawsuit!

Apparently everyone’s favorite sitcom shrink was involved with a Ponzy scheme that bilked investors out of millions. Several of these victims have taken legal action against Grammer and more than 100 other defendants.

One of those suing is Grammer’s former co-star Lydia Cornell. The two actors worked together on the Kelsey Grammer-Bill Zucker Comedy Hour, but this lawsuit is no joke!

The lawsuit alleges that one Alex Varonos, with the help of Grammer’s celebrity endorsement, convinced people to invest in a fake company called Staropoly.com while pocketing all the money.

According to the lawsuit, Grammer not only knew about the scheme, but was pretty darn close to the top of the pyramid.

Grammer says that far from being the Boss, he was actually just another victim, losing his own investment to the scam artist! Says attorney Marty Singer:

"Any claims filed against Kelsey Grammer concerning Starpoly (sic) are absurd and without merit. Kelsey has been substantially damaged in this venture, and in fact lost $1 million of his own money. Kelsey received nothing from the venture, monetarily or otherwise.”

There’s clearly a lot more to this story, but one thing’s for sure- this is one suit that even Frasier Crane wouldn’t look good in!

    As Ms. Cornell is in our current film production, doing her shows online & more, we were 1st hand in having proof she had no involvement in being aware this online staropoly was scamming folks. We know because we lost money too, with their deceiving lies, and then once she found out, she did protect us and made sure we got out. Now if we just can get justice to get our investment back.

    Alex Varonos is a shyster to the enth degree! He lures celebrities in with all kinds of promises of new technology that will help them communicate with their fans and of course the celebrities front the money and Alex keeps it. Alex is the criminal and should be in jail!

    LYDIA CORNELL IS ONE OF BEST HUMAN BEINGS I'VE EVER MET! She is a humanitarian in the best sense of the word, and does everything for others. This kind of publicity is the LAST thing she would want - and never thought it would come to this. She is one of the most honest, giving, generous, loving celebrities I've ever heard of. She has helped so many of us with her uplifting recovery show, her counseling for depressed kids, and she has a comedy show she does with spiritual uplifting help. She actually moved in a domestic abuse survivor to her home, when the woman had no place to go. You have no idea what you're talking about when you put her down. Good will win. The truth will come out. She is trying to help all of us get our money back that these criminals stole.

    Well Well how funny just saw the news the the entire case was thrown out of court with prejudice which means means Nelle Paegel, Brian Williams, Lydia Cornell and Richard cannot bring an action again further more an arrest warrant was issued for Richard Loland Lewis by the California Judge who presided over the case and now the police are investigating Nelle Paegel for Illegal wiretaps and the State Bar of California is now investigating for grounds of Disbarment. WOW I couldn't make this up if I tried. So let me get this straight, Kelsey Grammer is Dismissed, American Express is Dismissed, Wells Fargo is Dismissed, David Fleming, Alex, Varonos George Del Junco, Allan Miller and all the original named companies like ViewPartner, Staropoly, TCB, etc. and this is what the Huffington Post, AOL, Prez Hillton and the rest of the tabloids have written about as real news. God Bless America we really need it !!! What a waste of time and taxpayers money.
