Bruce Willis


Clearly Bruce Willis doesn't want Michael Jackson to be the only star embroiled in a legal rumble with royalty.

The Die Hard star is looking for legal vengence on Malaysian technology firm Petra Group and its chairman, Prince Imran Ibni Tuanku Ja'afar, over some eco-friendly rubber.

Willis—along with other boldface types like Al Gore and Mel Gibson—poured funds into the company's subsidiary, Green Rubber Global, which was developing nontoxic and recyclable rubber.

Willis kicked in $2 million. Per his lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, Willis given the option of a full refund as long as he gave the yippie-ki-OK within a certain amount of time.

Green Rubber returned $1.1 million to Willis in March, but has been holding out on the remaining $900,000.

However, the check might be in the mail. The rubber purveyors claim they will recoup the $900,000 "in the next couple of weeks," according to a Bloomberg report, meaning the case might not be bouncing into court anytime soon.
