WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — Vinny Paz and the directors behind the film “Bleed for This” are heading to court Monday morning after Paz filed a lawsuit claiming they owe him money.

Paz is alleging that the movie’s director Ben Younger and producer Chad Verdi owe him over $175,000 for the rights to his life story.

Younger and Verdi answered back with a counter suit claiming Paz renegotiated his deal.

However, Paz says the signature on the documents was forged because he does not sign anything under his name “Pazienza.”
