Revlon cosmetics mogul Ronald Perelman has sued his most recent former wife, actress Ellen Barkin, and her brother, claiming they drained money from a movie production company they formed together and he financed.

Perelman, 63, alleges that Barkin and her brother, George Barkin, formed Applehead II to compete with Applehead I, the firm the siblings had started with Perelman. He contends they siphoned money from Applehead I to pay for Applehead II.

A spokeswoman for Barkin did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
