Ellen Barkin is suing her former husband, Revlon honcho Ron Perelman, for nonpayment of $3 million he promised to pay her film company. Of note is that back in '06, the billionaire did pony up the first of what were to be eight installments in the amount of $468,160. If Judge Judy has taught me nothing else, it's that once you start signing checks, it indicates that an agreement was, in fact, made. OK, so my legalese is lacking. Basically, Perelman's screwed.
