When Maitland Ward transitioned from being a mainstream actress to the adult entertainment industry, she stunned more than just a few people who knew her as Rachel McGuire from 'Boy Meets World', or as Jessica Forrester from 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. But even with her giant shift to porn being a year old, it looks like she is yet to get int the groove of things, as recent court documents obtained by TMZ reveal that she is now being sued by her former coworkers for a whopping $270,000. Should that be a problem for the porn freshman? Not quite.

According to reports, an actress and videographer has now claimed that after beginning to work with Ward in July 2017, the two hit it off so well, that they went on to hook up frequently. However, soon their partnership fell apart, and Ward allegedly gathered all the cash from a deal they had struck back when things were blissful, while her partner was left with “bad checks and broken promises,” the outlet reports.

The lawsuit seeks the other actress's share of the deal, and compensation for damages suffered. And even with a solid net worth of $2,000,000, Ward has not only blown off the suit, calling it 'slander and immoral', but also labeled the entire story a blatant lie. "The fact that these long time friends have gotten together after so many months to sue me is complete slander and immoral. There are zero contracts and agreements that have any info pertaining to this completely made-up story," her statement to the outlet claimed, adding that the lawsuit is "a joke and warning to all porn stars to be careful who you shoot with on the outside."

Ward, who debuted with the ABC sitcom back in the early '90s, shot to fame right away with her character, Rachel. She then went on to star as Eleanor in the 1998 movie 'Interlocked: Thrilled to Death', and as Brittany Wilson in timeless comedy 'White Chicks' in 2004. Her career has seen her appearing in countless shows like 'USA High', 'Home Improvement', 'Boston Public', 'Out of Practice' and also 'Rules of Engagement'.

But even with a Young Artist Award in 1995 for Best Performance by a Youth Actress in a Daytime Series for 'The Bold and the Beautiful', Ward found incredible success when she began dressing up in raunchy outfits to cosplay at conventions and other social media related events. Soon she soared to the number one adult content creator on the social platform Patreon in 2018, and right after came the big indulgence into adult films in 2019.

This wasn't much of a shock as Ward had been posting racy nudes and topless shots of herself all over her social media since way back in 2013. With an Instagram follower count that has boomed to over a million, Ward has already been nominated for two Adult Video News Awards in just her debut year as a performer. And even though in an interview with Critic, Ward recently claimed, "I am not a porn star or a mainstream person. I am an actress," just four months ago in December 2019 she had shared with The Daily Beast that sometimes her monthly income is $60,000 just via the direct pay platform OnlyFans. Her fans haven't quite reacted to the news of the lawsuit, but what's five months' salary compared to her blooming net worth, right?
