Christel Khalil's Agent on Y&R Audition Claim: "There's No Way in Hell That She Went Out on an Audition"By Jamey Giddens on August 19, 2013
Christel Khalil's real-life battle with Mavrick Artists Agency is better than any storyline The Young and the Restless has going right now. The talent agency has filed a counter suit against the actress, who recently filed a breach of contract suit against them, reports The Wrap.
Earlier this month, The Wrap reported Khalil filed suit against Mavrick, alleging,
In her suit, she accused the agency of stealing funds and not sending her out on a satisfactory number of auditions. She says they even humilated her by sending the actress (left) out for a spot on her own soap opera, where she has worked for the past decade, even winning a Daytime Emmy for the role of Lily Winters Ashby.

I am hearing legendary casting director Judy Blye Wilson is fit to be tied over allegations Christel Khalil's agency tried to send her out on an audition for The Young and the Restless. On Aug. 7, The Wrap published an article detailing Khalil's reported beef with Mavrick Artists Agency. According to the website, Khalil has filed suit againt the firm, which allegedly :
failed to uphold their end of the representation contract. She charges that during a very busy pilot season this year, she was only sent out on two auditions for series regular roles. She was not sent on any commercial auditions.
Khalil accuses the defendants of intentionally not paying her for a guest spot on "2 Broke Girls." The complaint also alleges the agency essentially stole money from the actress above its 10 percent commission.
Perhaps most egregiously however, Mavrick Artists Agency allegedly sent Khalil out to audition for a role on her own show, "Young and the Restless," which "collectively embarrassed, if not mortified" the actress. She has four times been nominated for an Emmy in that role, once winning for the role of Lily Winters Ashby. READ MORE
