Photographer David LaChapelle has sued his former manager, alleging he is owed $2.8 million for sales of his photographs and $755,000 for personal loans, the New York Post has reported.
LaChapelle filed the claim against Fred Torres, whom he hired in 2005 “under a handshake agreement” to arrange exhibitions, provide career advice, and manage LaChapelle’s relationships with clients, galleries, and museums.
