Toni Collette - Toni Collette Embroiled In Property Dispute
Australian actress Toni Collette is facing a multi-million dollar legal battle over a failed property deal.
The Sixth Sense star and her husband Dave Galafassi have been sued over claims they agreed to buy a house in Sydney, Australia last year (11) for $6.6 million (£4.1 million), but pulled out when their own home failed to sell.
Susan and Nick Kelly, the creators of Australian fashion brand Industrie, have filed suit against the couple, claiming they lost money when they eventually sold the five-bedroom property in Paddington due to a fall in house prices.
They are suing for $1.7 million (£1.06 million), which includes a petition to keep the deposit paid by Collette and her husband, as well as the loss they suffered in the sale, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
