HAIRSPRAY star Nikki Blonsky is facing legal action from the lawyer she hired after her alleged fight with model BIANCA GOLDEN, according to reports.
The 20-year-old, along with her mother Karen and father Carl, is being sued by attorney Michael J. Griffith for legal fees in connection with the incident last year (08).
The actress was detained in the Turks and Caicos Islands in July (08) along with her father and America's Next Top Model star Golden after trouble erupted in the airport's departure lounge.
The altercation between Blonsky and Golden at the Providenciales International Airport saw Blonsky charged with assault and actual bodily harm.
Golden was also accused of causing actual bodily harm, but all of the charges against both girls were subsequently dropped.
Blonsky's father was released on bail and is still facing prosecution - he has pleaded not guilty to charges of grievous bodily harm.
But Griffith alleges that after he negotiated for Carl Blonsky to be let out of jail on a $3,000 (£2,143) bond, the actress fired him without paying his fees.
A representative for Blonsky was unavailable as WENN went to press.
