Comedian Redd Foxx doesn't have to pay $50,000 to a woman who claims she landed him his role in the Eddie Murphy movie "Harlem Nights," a judge ruled.
Talent agent Jackie Baskow claimed she had a verbal agreement with Foxx to help him land the part. The veteran comedian disagreed."I can hustle my own jobs," he told District Judge Thomas Foley in Las Vegas. The judge ruled that Foxx didn't have to pay.
Baskow testified that she solicited Foxx for the movie and negotiated his salary up from $275,000 to $375,000 before he became disinterested in her services. She said she later found out Foxx received $500,000.
