"Friends" actress Lisa Kudrow lost a lawsuit brought by a former manager and was ordered to pay him $1.6 million.

The verdict was the culmination of a legal battle between Kudrow and her former manager, Scott Howard, that lasted six years. Howard claimed he had an oral agreement with the actress and wanted $1.7 million from re-runs of the sitcom and other projects.

Kudrow testified that she felt it wasn't necessary to have a manager while she was on the show. She also said she paid Howard more than $11 million.

The two worked together for 16 years, and then parted ways in 2007.

But a jury ultimately sided with Howard, finding that Kudrow was liable for breach of contract.
