Actress Kristen Bell is being named in a lawsuit targeting Meridian Restaurant Group, the owners of Hollywood’s tequila and mezcal bar, L’Scorpion. The pregnant star is one of five plaintiffs alleging that their initial investments in the business were never reciprocated in a promised five-percent of returns. Bell invested $20,000 into the business in 2005, while the bar has reportedly turned a profit of $30,000 per month in its seven years of operation. [NYDN]
