    Tia Mowry
    Sues Over Tweet Deal Gone Wrong

    Thanks to "Sister Sister" star Tia Mowry we now know why some celebs can't stop Tweeting -- because they can make a bloody fortune doing it ... but Mowry claims she got bamboozled out of her earnings by a double-dealing agent.

    Tia filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- which shows she made deals to send sponsored Tweets for certain companies ... deals that were supposed to have paid her more than $108,000!!

    But according to the suit ... the agent she hired to handle her Twitter deals soaked her for far more than the 10% commission to which he was entitled -- and instead took more than HALF of the Tweet deal cash.

    Mowry says she's been cheated out of nearly $60K. She's suing for that, plus another $120K in punitive damages.

    Tia Mowry Sues ‘Tweet Manager’ For Taking 50 Percent Of Earnings

    In a lawsuit exclusively obtained by RumorFix, Tia Mowry is suing her “Tweet Manager” for taking 50 percent of her earnings, when he was only due 10 percent.

    The star of Nickelodeon’s Instant Mom is accusing former Innovative Artists Agency employee Brian Hanley for taking more than his share of revenues from her sponsored tweets.

    Between 2009-2013, Tia’s attorneys say she made $108,598.11 by promoting products to her 1.7 million Twitter followers — but she only got 37,741.75. She claims Brian lied to her and not only took their agreed upon fee of 10 percent then added a five percent administrative fee and 35 percent tax withholding fee — without her approval.

    The lawsuit claims Brian “concealed and suppressed the fact that he has withholding sponsored tweet deal monies that he was not entitled to or authorized to withhold.”

    The famous twin from TV’s Tia And Tamera is suing for the remaining 59,997.55 she feels she is owed, plus interest, legal fees and compensatory damages.

    I wasn't aware that "Tweet Manager" was a legitimate job title/postion.
    And that C+ actresses make that much on tweets.

    This is the world we live in today.
    Jesus.
