Valerie Harper sued for $2M by playwright for not informing him she had cancer Published: April 28, 2014

Actress Valerie Harper has been hit with a $2 million lawsuit by Broadway bigshot Matthew Lombardo, who charges she didn’t tell him she had cancer until after she signed on to star in his play, reports the New York Daily News.

Lombardo charges Harper and her husband, Tony Cacciotti, hid her bout with lung cancer until it spread to her brain, forcing her to bail out of last year’s national tour of “Looped.”

At the time she left the play he wrote, doctors had given the 74-year-old “Rhoda” star just months to live.
