Now here’s something Candace Bushnell won’t be typing lovingly about anytime soon: her gay pal and former manager Clifford Streit is suing her for reneging on a $150,000 settlement, reports the New York Post.
Clifford Streit is the real-life basis for Carrie Bradshaw’s GBF (gay best friend) Stanford Blatch on the wildly popular Sex and the City franchise.
Streit claims that Bushnell, played by Sarah Jessica Parker in the series, has not honored a 2006 agreement to give him 7.5 percent royalties on anything she earns from the SATC franchise.
Though the two movies and TV series have generated hundreds of millions of dollars, Streit has only seen $230,000—and was last paid before SATC 2 came out, which grossed $295 million at the box office. Now he just wants his fair share of that amount: $150,000.
Sounds like a budding plotline for Sex and the City 3: Bitch Fight in the Hamptons!
