New dad Brian Austin Green has missed out on the chance to recoup $200,000 he allegedly loaned to his ex - because he waited too long to ask the courts to help him get it back.
The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star and wife Megan Fox welcomed baby Noah on September 27, but a blast from his past has ruined his baby bliss - a judge has thrown out his lawsuit against Vanessa Marcil, the mother of his first child, because he waited too long to file.
Green took his actress ex to court last year, claiming he had asked for the cash back almost 11 years after he loaned her the money in 2000.
On Monday, a Los Angeles judge ruled Green had waited too long to pursue legal action against Marcil - and the statute of limitations had run out.
To add insult to injury, the judge also ruled that Marcil can seek monetary sanctions from Green for what her lawyers called a "frivolous" lawsuit, according to TMZ.com.
