Nic Cage Not Being Sued for Fraud

Posted on

Nic Cage isn’t being sued for fraud and lawyers for a real estate company are going after him for much less than a previously reported $36.7 million, PEOPLE clarifies.

Cage, who says he’s facing financial ruin after allegedly being duped by his former accountant, is being sued by Red Curb Investments for failure to pay back approximately $3 million in loans.

Red Curb, a small private lender, is also seeking more than $3 million each from his former accountant and a mortgage broker, accusing them of defrauding the real estate company by not disclosing Cage’s true financial picture, including his enormous tax debt.

Marty Singer, Cage’s lawyer, tells PEOPLE: “Any claims that Nic Cage engaged in fraud or wrongful conduct is absurd and ridiculous.”
