Rachelle vs Summit: bringing out the lawyers!


According to E! Online
"now the bloody mess is apparently being hashed out by lawyers.

What's on the table? Read on to find out…

In short, Lefevre wants her money. Summit is arguing she's due nothing because the studio insists she's in breach of contract for signing on for the indie flick Barney's Version.

"Rachelle's contract says she's allowed to do smaller projects like Barney's Version," one source said.

Meanwhile, her Twilight and New Moon costars are "devastated," said another source. "As nice and lovely as Bryce [Dallas Howard] is, they feel like a family member has been taken from them."

But don't expect them to go public with too much anti-Summit talk. As my gossiping cohorts over at The Awful Truth point out, Lefevre's dismissal sends a very strong message—or warning—not to mess with the studio.

Sources also tell me that shortly after Summit announced Lefevre's dismissal, the rest of the cast was told not to elaborate on the circumstances to the media, beyond repeating that it was due to a scheduling conflict.

"But that was before the Rachelle and Summit statements yesterday," a Twilight insider said. "Who knows what they'll ask them to say now."

  1. Funny thing is ... is that if Rob, Kristen, or Taylor said anything about how they feel to the media, then what is Summit going to do? If they recast any of their roles, the boycotts will be crazy. I know I wouldn't see it.

    Anyways, I hope Rachelle the best. I would much rather her recast, but I know that won't happen now. :(

  2. You know, Dummit I mean Summit, is being beyond stupid now. It should be them kissing the actor's ass not the other way around since the fans are attached to the actors. God this is getting ugAaly

  3. Ok so very hard to keep quiet about this... But here goes. There was an incident at Comic Con between Rachelle and a certain other actress in the movie. She got put in her place about her drug use and her attitude. The fight heated up and this other actress was basically humiliated by Rachelle with all the fellow cast members standing behind Rachelle. The little swelled headed dope addict decided to get even and made a coy threat to Summit. Basically if Rachelle wasn't gone for Eclipse there was going to be major "accidental" delays.
    Rachelle hun you did the right thing and im so incredibly proud of you. So is everyone else and you know who im talking about. Im not putting my name on this because I don't want things to get back to certain people. But know this, she is going to end up ruining this whole franchise for them and for Summit to bow down to a spoiled ignorant 19 year old drug addict who all her castmates are disgusted with, well they are going to see very quickly how nicely the sh-- hits the fan. Luv you Rachelle. Btw I will see you Monday. :)

    Wow! Now there is an example of real Kristen hate, hu? Wow...

    And the writer didn't sign their name. Surprised? NOT!

    I am now officially not reading any comments on blogs, by Anonymous. It's too easy to get a Net Profile Name, for anyone to remain Anonymous.

    Btw, why do you publish Anonymous comments? Would it pull down your stats, that much? To not? -sigh-

  6. Oh goodness. I wish Summit would just back down and give the fans what they want. It should be about us any way.

  7. i agree with "Alice's Aunt".

    Spreading rumours like that SUX. I am definitely NOT a KS fan, but I don`t believe HALF of the shit that`s said about her, i.e. I don`t believe a thing YOU (Anonymous)`re saying.

    The Summit/Rachelle thing is about Summit/Rachelle only. No other cast member has anything to do with it!

  10. Ok so KS might smoke a little weed (on her doorstep like a douche so the paps can catch it - or in a country where it's legal)but what's the big deal? Should be legal anyway (not that I care, I don't smoke it) but to say KS has a drug problem and Rachelle confronted her at Comic-Con of all PUBLIC places is ridiculous. If that confrontation had happened, it would have been ALL OVER THE NEWS let's be real.

    I truly feel Rachelle's management made some sort of mistake or demand of the studio and HELLO - it's Twilight Saga not Brad Pitt we're talking about here. Rachelle is a relative unknown with NO WEIGHT with a studio so why would the studio back down? If she or her management made the mistake or a stupid demand then Summitt has all the rights in the world to cut her loose. Only Rachelle and the studio really know what's up and for Summitt to go balls to the wall I think says allot.

  11. Well, I can certainly see how an argument could occur between the two, whether or not it actually did, who knows. Kristen did seem weirder than normal at CC. And I wouldn't attack someone on this site for not using their name. If you had inside info on something like this, you'd be crazy to use your name and risk being drawn into the legal circus. If she does have a drug problem that's affecting the saga, it will come out. It will be too hard to cover it up with as many cast and crew who work on the set, and all the media attention they get. jmo.

  13. @Alice's Aunt: i write as anonymous because i have no interest in identifying myself any further to equally anonymous net sources---i'm not into twitter, my space, etc. & don't plan to be in order to have an identity like 'ScrewMe' or 'ScrewYou'---how such an identity would benefit you more than 'anonymous' in weighing the comment is beyond me---

    imo Rachelle was shafted & why doesn't change the fact---if she sues Summit, i can only hope she collects---

  15. And i know it something personal between Rachelle and Summit.It WAS something personal , that got published everywhere in the Internet.I doubt Summit want to make cash out of this.

  16. *chuckle* E Online's Ted debunked the whole "fight" rumor. Thought it sounded pretty sketchtastic.

    I'd really like the suits to settle this. I need to get some work done and get back to obsessing about Rob's t-shirts and smiles. This Rachelle thing is stressin' me right the frell out! I'd just like her back and for Summit to go back to hiding behind the curtain.

  17. Ok, people know I have no love for the shag pot head, but i didn't post the comment lol. whatever 'supposedly' went down at Comic-con had an affect on what went down this week. Think about it.. Summit knew about her project before-hand (with time to make proper adjustments)and they now chose to recast...on short notice?? (and yeah this is short notice)

    Summit's rebuttal to Rachelle(both versions) came off as a woman on her monthly flow whose BF decided to leave her hanging.. Sorry, but that is completely unprofessional. I don't think it was about money in RL's case. Everyone knows the franchise is a huge cash cow and what better way to gain more mainstream appeal than get some big names involved..

    Like they say, everything is NOT what it seems..

  18. They shouldn't take Rachelle out of the movie. Bryce doesn't have the right look for Victoria, she doesn't look wild enough. All of this is just a big mess and I wish that they could hurry up and sort it out!

  19. Someday it will all get sorted out and we'll get the truth via "Twilight Saga: The Inside Story" in about 10-15 years.

  21. Rachelle if summit do not give you the role back, then I do hope your lawyers will take them to the cleaner for every single penny that they owe you! your commitment to the Twilight saga and to the fans is so clear, Summit can not cover that up!

  22. I think Rachelle and Ashley were the two people who fit their character descriptions perfectly. As I read the books, I pictured a woman who looked exactly like Rachelle. She clearly stole every scene she was in.

    I think this was a really bad decision. I don't want Rachelle just to get the money. I want her to keep her job. She is an awesome Victoria, and I want her back!
