Bones Stars Emily Deschanel & David Boreanaz Are Suing FOX For Allegedly Cheating Them Out Of $100 Million In Unpaid Profits!

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersBusiness Blitz

And they aren't the only ones suing the studio!

Wooooooow. That's a LOT of money!

And now, the stars and producers of Bones want the network to pay up! On Monday, Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz — who play the leads on the popular program — filed a complaint against FOX regarding unpaid profits!

The actors are suing 20th Century Fox with Kathy Reichs, who wrote the books from which the show is adapted.

The 67-year-old and the TV stars allege that the studio has used phony accounting to cheat them out of "tens of millions of dollars."

The legal docs claim the three "were being cheated out of more than $100 million in gross revenues and being overcharged many additional millions of dollars in alleged expenses."

Yikes. If that's true, it's definitely not fair!

Because of rights — and her role as executive producer — the author was supposedly due five percent of the show's profits. Emily and David were each allegedly owed 3 percent.

But that's not the only suit the studio is facing over the dramedy! Barry Josephson decided to sue last week, because he also feels like he hasn't been given the payment he deserves!

The executive producer claims that network execs Gary Newman and Dana Walden threatened to cancel the show unless he agreed to lower licensing fees for the fifth and sixth seasons.

That sounds shady to us! But what do U think, Perezcious readers? SOUND OFF in the comments!

This is so sad.

An 18-year-old man named Henry Bartle was arrested and charged on Sunday with criminally negligent homicide after the gun he was cleaning accidentally discharged, killing a seven-month-old boy.

The incident, which took place in Rome, New York, claimed the life of Nathaniel Hitt, the child of Bartle's girlfriend.

Allegedly, the man was cleaning his 12-gauge shotgun when, according to the Rome Police Department, he tried to stand with the loaded weapon inadvertently aimed in the infant's direction.

Bartle is currently being held on an unspecified bail, after having been charged in the death.

Our thoughts are with everybody involved in this awful, awful tragedy.
