The Crash star is facing a $43 million (GBP29.4 million) lawsuit from investors in her company Jennifer's Way. The investors, including her husband Louis Dowler, launched the lawsuit in March (16), claiming the 43-year-old "hijacked" the company's website and redirected it to her personal blog, where she informed customers she was no longer supporting Jennifer's Way and instructed them to not use the products.

Esposito started the gluten-free bakery after she was diagnosed with autoimmune disorder celiac disease in 2012. The actress alleged she was axed from TV show Blue Bloods because of her medical condition.

“(They) PUT me on unpaid leave and blocked me from working anywhere else after my doc (doctor) said u needed a reduced schedule due to celiac," she wrote on Twitter. com. "CBS (TV network bosses) didn’t listen to my doc and I collapsed on set. Which everyone saw!

"After a week off my doc said I could return to work but CBS implied that I was NOT truly ill and this was a scheme to get a raise!”

Meanwhile, she maintains she was "pushed out" of the baking company and "was misled by her investors", adding she has done nothing to warrant a lawsuit, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

It is unclear when the actress is due back in court, but she has left the U.S. to "process all of her legal woes", according to sources.

"She is taking off to Denmark for an undetermined amount of time," one tells the publication.

Esposito has also reportedly filed for divorce from Dowler, who she wed in 2014.

The actress was previously married to actor Bradley Cooper from 2006 to 2007.
