Cyndy Garvey has sued UCLA over tuition costs she has had wrongfully leveled against her. The former “The Morning Show” co-host and ex-wife of baseball legend Steve Garvey claims she was duped into enrolling in the university’s master’s program after UCLA said it would split the costs with her.
According to TMZ, Garvey was “approached by two UCLA bigshots and asked if she would enroll in a master’s program at the UCLA School of Public Health.” She said she had no interest, but the two people — one of whom was allegedly the former director of the executive master’s program — said a rich alumnus would pay for half of Garvey’s education because of her “celebrity status.”
Garvey agreed and graduated in 2009, and all seemed well until she was recently hit was a $20,000 tax lien claiming she had unpaid debt to UCLA. Her attorney Keith Fink has filed a suit with the L.A. County Superior Court saying Garvey never signed anything saying she would pay for the schooling. Garvey is also asking for more than $25,000 from UCLA to “make things right.”
A UCLA representative tells TMZ that the university has “no comment at this time.”
