    Director Tim Burton's Ex Sues Him for Fraud

    Director Tim Burton has been sued for fraud by his former lover, Lisa Marie, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

    In a suit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Marie, who describes herself as an actress, model, artist, writer and photographer, claims that Burton owes her palimony from their 10-year relationship, and that after their split she'd settled for a lesser amount under false pretenses. TMZ.com was first to report the suit.

    She says she and the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory director, 48, began dating beginning around December 1991, and that when they began living together they agreed to combine their earnings, with Marie serving as Burton's personal manager. She also says Burton promised to support her for the rest of her life.

    In August 2001, Burton abruptly ended their relationship, news that the court papers call "totally unexpected" and which made Marie "extremely depressed and emotionally unstable for months thereafter."

    Around the same time, Burton began dating actress Helena Bonham Carter, 40, whom he met while directing her in 2001's Planet of the Apes. They now have a son together, Billy-Ray Burton, 3.

    Marie claims that after Burton left her, his associates, claiming they were acting on her behalf, conspired with Burton to fraudulently convince her that she had little chance of winning a palimony claim. Burton even held secret talks with one of her close friends, a woman named Cherry Vanilla, in a plot to convince Marie to settle.

    As a result, she accepted a settlement of their Fifth Avenue apartment in New York City and a Jaguar. She now wants to rescind the settlement agreement and is seeking unspecified damages.

    My question is, how can you seriously talk to anybody named Cherry Vanilla?

    That's a flavour of Coca~Cola, not a person.

    Seems a bit silly to me. The only reason any of us even know Lisa Marie is because Burton put her in his movies. Without him she's no longer getting work so now she wants more money. He shouldn't have to support her any more than he already has. If she couldn't parlay the opportunities provided by him into a real career that's her problem.

    Well, really, the only time I've liked her roles are when she stayed quiet. Like in Mars Attacks and Sleepy Hollow. As soon as she opened her mouth, her acting abilities induced vomiting.

    So calling herself an actress is a bit of a stretch.
