‘High School Musical’ Star Wins Lawsuit Against Parents

High School Musical star Chris Warren Jr. reportedly won a lawsuit against his parents.

The actor made headlines earlier this year when he sued Christopher Warren Sr. and former Passions star Brooke Kerr after they allegedly spent his earnings from the hit Disney franchise. The money was supposedly set aside in a trust for Warren back in 2001.

According to Contact Music, the High School Musical star was recently awarded a cool $330,000 by a US judge. Warren’s parents reportedly failed to respond to the lawsuit in a timely fashion.

Digital Spy explains that neither Chris Warren Jr. or his parents have responded publicly to the lawsuit. Although Brooke Kerr and Christopher Warren Sr. never officially addressed their son’s lawsuit, this won’t prevent them from having to fork over the $337,186 awarded to the actor.

Chris Warren Jr. is probably best known for his turn as Zeke Baylor in Disney’s High School Musical movies. However, his career doesn’t begin and end with this franchise.

The young actor’s small screen work includes the MTV series The Hard Times of RJ Berger and the American version of The InBetweeners. Warren also portrayed Xander in director Betty Thomas’ Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.

Of course, Warren isn’t the only High School Musical star to find success outside of the franchise. Zac Efron, Ashley Tisdale, and Spring Breakers star Vanessa Hudgens have also made the jump from Disney darlings to hot Hollywood commodities over the past few years.

While Efron recently wrapped up work on both Parkland and Townies, Hudgens can be seen next in writer-director Scott Walker’s upcoming serial killer flick The Frozen Ground. The actress portrays a stripper who helps a determined Alaskan detective track down a notorious killer.
