Art collector, socialite and former Andy Warhol muse Jane Holzer is accused of bamboozling veteran broker Joanna Cutler out of a more than $700,000 commission check, the New York Post reported.

The broker of the eponymous firm filed suit Monday in New York State Supreme Court, the Post said, alleging that Cutler showed Holzer the $16 million Upper East Side townhouse she eventually bought, but that Holzer and her now-deceased partner “schemed” to avoid paying the commission they allegedly owed. Holzer — known as “Baby Jane” when she starred in Warhol films, and daughter of real estate baron Carl Bruckenfeld — has since become an art collector and film producer.

“Cutler was instrumental in procuring the transaction and in assisting Ms. Holzer and her attorneys in the negotiation of the terms of the contract,” the suit said, according to the Post. [NYP] –Guelda Voien
