Montel Williams is being sued for the return of $300,000 by Guardian GamingGuardian Gaming, a Malta-based online gaming operator, is suing U.S. talk show star Montel Williams for the return of $300,000 it alleges it paid him to host an international poker league which he subsequently pulled out of.

In July 2008 Guardian Gaming took a 25 percent stake in International Poker League, which the court documents say is an “alter ego” of Williams and paid him $300,000 the following month.

The document goes on to say that International Poker League terminated the agreement in September 2008 and under the terms of the agreement the $300,000 was due to be refunded to Guardian Gaming.

Guardian Gaming says Williams acknowledged its entitlement to a refund but the money has not been forthcoming and it is challenging Williams in the Nevada courts to have the sum returned.
