[Gossip] Man Depicted In The Wolf Of Wall Street Suing For $25 Million
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.19.2014



TMZ reports that Andrew Greene, a former executive at Stratton Oakmont and former business partner of Jordan Belfort, is suing Martin Scorsese and Paramount for $25 million over the way he was portrayed in The Wolf of Wall Street.

He said the film defamed him by showing him as a criminal and a drug user, as well as mocking his hair loss. Greene said that his co-workers, including Belfort, gave him the nickname "Wigman" due to the toupee he wore. In the film, he's portrayed as Nicky "Rugrat" Koskoff (P.J. Bryne) and the co-woerks mock his hair piece frequently. It also shows him doing illegal and unethical things, including having sex with prostitutes in front of his co-workers.

He said the way he was portrayed in the film has damaged his professional reputation as an investment banker. He also said that he never gave his permission for the film to use his name, likeness or identity. He wants $25 million in damages from Paramount and Scorsese's production company. He also wants them to hand over all copies of the film and get it pulled from theaters.
