Court Orders Spanish Actor Antonio Banderas To Pay Former Moto2 Associate $76,000

Spanish actor Antonio Banderas' "passion for motorcycling could prove expensive" after a Spanish court's ruling that Banderas owes former Real Madrid basketball player Jose Miguel Antunez €55,000 ($76,000), according to SPORT. Banderas teamed up with Daniel Devahive in '09 to launch Jack&Jones Team, a Moto2 team, which later employed Antunez, who is now demanding €55,000 in payment he never received. The team competed in '10, but a year later, "it fell off the map for economic reasons overnight." Antunez was "seemingly in charge of mediating between Banderas and Devahive." Banderas' lawyer, Francisco Fortes, explained that his client's defense "will be based on the fact he never actively participated in the project and only signed an agreement that never went into effect." Banderas "previously had to sue a Jack&Jones Team sponsor for continuing to use his image after the club dissolved." Banderas won that suit and received €65,000 (SPORT, 4/8).
