Dwayne Johnson, known as The Rock, is named in a lawsuit filed against his ex-wife and financial advisor Dany Garcia, that alleges she obtained $1.8 million from Mirta Mendez, and did not repay said loan. Mendez claims Dany Garcia used Johnson’s celebrity status to lure investors.
Dwayne Johnson is named in the lawsuit as a “co-conspirator” who benefited from his ex-wife’s accounts. Reports allege the investor’s money came from the Cuban government.
The lawsuit also names Dany Garcia’s Miami-based financial advisory company, JDM Partners and accountant Emery Sheer. JDM Partners reportedly filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.
