Perry Rogers, a longtime aide and friend of tennis superstar Andre Agassi, has sued Agassi's wife, Steffi Graf. Rogers recently split with Agassi, though the separation has been described by Agassi as amicable.
Said Agassi in a statement obtained by the Las Vegas Sun's Jon Ralston:
“Several weeks ago, my agent, manager and lawyer, Perry Rogers, and I decided to sever our business relationship. At that time, I had every hope that we could do so amicably and in the interest of maintaining our long-term friendship. As a result, I am both saddened and disappointed to learn that Perry has filed a lawsuit, and sadder still that he has sued my wife, Stefanie. I remain hopeful that we will be able to resolve our business issues with minimal damage to our families and mutual friends.”
