Before reaching a settlement with UTA over a 2008 dispute regarding unpaid commissions, the actor explained the deal in place between himself and agency as he understood it. According to his simile, he was in fact a ho, while the major talent agency was a pimp.

Same Old Story! Wesley Snipes Will Stay In Jail After Court Denies His Appeal!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm FlickersLegal MattersSad SadWesley Snipes

wesley snipes appeal denied again

This is truly becoming a tale as old as time!

To recap, Wesley Snipes was convicted in 2008 on tax evasion charges, and he was sentenced to three years in federal minimum security prison, beginning in December 2010.

Then, he tried to file an appeal requesting a new trial with the U.S. Supreme Court back in December…but he was denied.

Now, the Blade/Major League actor has once again tried to appeal his prison sentence, but the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta rejected his request.

This kind of reminds us of the whole Phil Spector thing…but on a much less extreme scale!

Do U think Wesley Snipes has served enough time? Or should he stay in jail???
