Taylor Lautner donates RV lawsuit money to charity
SheKnows recently reported Taylor Lautner was entangled in a lawsuit over a cushy trailer on the set of his new movie, Abduction. Well, the 18-year-old actor is now $40,000 richer -- or at least his favorite charity is.
Lautner and McMahon's RV agreed on a settlement after the RV company reportedly did not deliver a trailer to the set of Taylor Lautner's movie, Abduction, by June 21.
Allegedly the agreed settlement gives Taylor Lautner and his legendary abs a payday of $40,000. The ironic part is that Lautner will not see a dime of the money.
"McMahon's RV has agreed to settle its dispute with Taylor Lautner. McMahon's RV will pay $40,000 to Lautner, which Lautner will donate to the Lollipop Theater Network, a children's charity with which he has a long-standing relationship," Taylor Lautner's attorney Robert Barta reportedly told UsMagazine.com.
A heartbreaker and a humanitarian? This kid is good.
Barta added, "The Lollipop Theater Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing movies currently in theaters to children confined to hospitals due to chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The Lollipop Theater Network works with hospitals nationwide, including the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas."
Allegedly, TMZ was claiming the poor boy was plagued with "emotional distress" over not having his plush trailer delivered promptly to the set of Abduction. A source is allegedly telling UsMagazine.com that couldn't be farther from the truth and the RV was definitely not glamorous.
"This was never a suit about money. It was to hold someone accountable," the source said. "Taylor never ordered a customized RV. It was a used RV, which needed simple safety-related repairs. There was never any diva behavior. Emotional distress is an automatic checked box on a fraudulent claim."
Taylor Lautner will soon begin production on the first installment of the two-part conclusion of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn.
Taylor Lautner's reps were reportedly not available for comment.
