Elliott also deducted Durant's personal chef as a business expense, according to the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

The lawsuit stated that Durant will now have to amend his taxes, pay back taxes, interests and possibly penalties. The star player is suing Elliott for professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract. He's seeking $200,000 for each of the three counts.

Lawyers for Durant and Elliott didn't immediately return phone messages left Thursday seeking comment.
