Stephen Baldwin says Kevin Costner robbed him. Baldwin is suing Costner for money lost due to a bad investment. The actor said Costner tricked him into a partnership involving the BP oil spill. However, the partnership went south after money was lost in the investment.
Could Kevin Costner be sued for Stephen BaldwinÂ’s poor choices? Baldwin stated that Costner persuaded him to become a partner in a company which builds machines to separate oil from water. After the oil spill, Costner advised Baldwin to sell his shares. However, Costner didnÂ’t sell his share. He later made millions when the company sold its invention.
Baldwin believes that Kevin Costner knew about the companyÂ’s potential and schemed him out of the equation. That way, Costner could profit from his lost and make even more money. The company sold its invention to BP and Costner reportedly pocketed $52 million.
This is not a small lawsuit! If Stephen BaldwinÂ’s accusations are true, Kevin Costner is one crooked guy! He probably used his acting skills to get Baldwin engaged and interested. What a terrible thing to do if it is true. ItÂ’s not difficult imagine the rage Baldwin must feel. Kevin Costner has yet to defend these allegations. ItÂ’s a safe bet that more information will unravel in the following days.
