Former CHARLIE'S ANGELS star Kate Jackson is suing haircare company BIOTECH CORPORATION for $5 million (GBP3.1 million), claiming they've taken advantage of her and tainted her image.

The actress signed up as a spokesperson for Biotech's NUHAIR product for a 60-day period, but claims the company didn't honour the agreement.

In court papers filed in Los Angeles, the angry star claims she spent nine months negotiating a contract extension worth $250,000 (GBP156,250), while the company kept running commercials she filmed for them.

Jackson also claims she's due royalties from sales of the haircare products.
