Forgive us for not being impartial but we are 100% behind Valerie Harper on this one!

The 74-year-old actress has already been to hell and back with her recent health struggles, so the last thing she needs right now is a lawsuit saying she LIED about her cancer!

As we previously reported, Broadway playwright Matthew Lombardo wants $2 MILLION from Harper since he says she withheld the truth about her cancer’s resurgence in 2012.

That’s when Miz Harper had to drop out of Lombardo’s play, Looped, due to her slurred speech and memory loss all thanks to a tumor that was discovered in her brain!

The production refused to pay Valerie the rest of what was owed on her contract, so she sued! But then Lombardo sued her right back, claiming she knew she was sick the whole time!

OMG! Go F yourself, buddy!

Valerie broke her silence this week, saying that she was more shocked than anyone to see the cancer come back not only in her lung but to have it spread to her brain as well!

She says Lombardo found out about her diagnosis the same time she did and that his lawsuit is COMPLETELY baseless!

And she’s hoping a court agrees and throws his suit out!

We hope so too!

You need to focus on getting healthy, Val! Not about stupid lawsuits that are not only frivolous, they’re offensive!

Get well soon, gurl!

    yeah I'm with Valery on this one. What a dick move on the producer's part.

    I don't know, though. Her suing the playwright who doesn't pay her because she wasn't able to perform, however good the reason, doesn't make much sense either, does it? Did I miss something? If he'd known, perhaps he could have gotten an insurance policy to cover the chance she'd have to drop out? Sad this is happening.

    there is something off about harper…not sure what it is but something is funny…
    i don't trust her and the fact that so few people came out in support when she was supposedly so near death told me that she doesn't have many friends in the industry…

    I can understand that he was probably majorly inconvenienced, but these are seriously extraordinary circumstances and the optics are horrendous, not to mention the lack of humanity. Wouldn't she have an understudy? Agree on the insurance thing. She's always been a total pro, but it's c-a-n-c-e-r. If you thought you had limited time left with your loved ones, would you want to spend it all on a stage every night? No, you'd want to cocoon with your family. Cancer is unpredictable, and so is remission.
