As we previously reported, Jonathan Schwartz admitted to stealing from the Ironic songstress, along with other clients for a total of over $6.5 million. He has since pleaded guilty and is expected to be sentenced May 3.

You know that lawyer John Galliano fired a few weeks ago? Well, now he's suing him!
In a lawsuit filed last month, the scandal-plagued designer accuses Stephane Zerbib of "embezzling nearly three million euros ($4.4 million) from his own account and one of his companies."
Did he not think he'd get caught!?
The complaint goes on to say that Zerbib, who was hired to manage the rights of Galliano's image, made multiple cash withdrawals from the bank account using the company card and on one occasion up to seven times a day.
But wait it gets better!
