Stephen Baldwin is suing fellow actor Kevin Costner over their investments in a machine that BP used to separate oil from water.
Baldwin reportedly owned 10 percent of the Costner-backed company that made oil-separating centrifuges. A federal lawsuit filed in New Orleans, Louisiana Wednesday alleges that Costner and his business partners “schemed” to get Baldwin to sell back his shares of an $18 million deal for BP to purchase the devices in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Costner’s representatives declined to comment, AP reported.
The suit seeks unspecified damages.
