According to a message posted on the esoapstars.com web site, St. John's business partners took issue with "an 8 page 'message'" that appeared on the company's web site. "The statements that St. John made in his 'message' were false," the statement states. "His decision to post this was unfortunate."
The statement goes on the state that the matter is currently in litigation.
St. John was re-married in November and recently earned an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Drama Series.
A spokesperson for St. John did not return calls regarding the lawsuit.
