Manny Pacquiao has sued his accountants … claiming the pencil pushers probably flunked math — they made so many mistakes on his company”s taxes.
Actually Manny”s legal action is a countersuit against VisionQwest Resource Group. VisionQwest sued Manny last year for failing to pay their fees.
Now Manny says in his countersuit — why would anyone pay fees to accountants who not only made “numerous errors” on tax returns but gave “substandard accounting and tax advice.” The lawsuit, filed by Dan Petrocelli — the guy who kicked OJ Simpson”s ass in the civil trial — claims VisionQwest was “unscrupulous” by targeting Manny for a quick profit.
Manny also claims they are illegally holding his tax records hostage.
FUN FACT: In the lawsuit, Manny calls himself “the world”s top “Pound for Pound” professional boxer.” He also says he”s the 6th highest paid athlete in the word, raking in $40 million from the second half of 2008 through the first half of 2009.
