Kristen Bell Sues Hollywood Bar Owners

The 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' actress claims the establishment, in which she is an investor, failed to pay her a proper share of the profits.

Actress Kristen Bell and others are taking action against the parent company of Hollywood tequila bar L'Scorpian, according to the New York Daily News.

Bell, who invested $20,000 in the establishment in 2005, and four other investors claim Meridian Restaurant Group failed to pay them the five percent profits for their share of the bar, which, the article went on to say, has earned about $30,000 a month since it opened.

An article by E! Online, though, said Bell wasn't aware she was part of the suit until she read a report about it.

"She was unaware that the investor group had decided to file this lawsuit to recoup losses ..." one of Bell's representatives told E!.

In addition to performing the title role in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," Bell is featured in television's "House of Lies" and in "Movie 43," which opened in theaters last week, according to IMDB.com.

L'Scorpian, located at 6679 Hollywood Blvd., serves a limited menu of Mexican food and more than 200 types of tequila.
