Eva Longoria is being sued for at least four million dollars over her financially troubled Las Vegas nightclub.

A former partner in the Beso club, Mali Nachum, claims the Desperate Housewives star violated California usury laws.

The suit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Longoria lent Nachum one million dollars for the venture in 2009 and was promised repayment at 8% annual interest and a large stake in the club.

But according to the suit, Nachum discovered in December that the terms violated California usury laws.

He estimates damages of at least four million dollars and is seeking three times that figure.

A statement from Eva's publicist called the suit "meritless" and blames her former partners for forcing the nightclub into bankruptcy protection last week.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
