Nick Denton wants his porn money. The head of Gawker Media has filed papers with New York’s Supreme Court claiming that he still hasn’t been paid for the sale of Fleshbot, the porntastic site that used to be under the Gawker umbrella.
The New York Post reports that Denton alleges Noa Gottlieb signed a promissory note to pay $100,000 Fleshbot. The total would be paid in four installments that were supposed to begin May 1 of last year. But Denton and his legal team claim that never happened. “Fleshbot made none of the $25,000 payments and despite repeated requests for payment still owes Gawker $100,000 plus interest,” read a court filing.
Gottlieb’s position (Haha!) on the matter is that “actions” by Denton and Gawker Media voided the promissory note.
