Ray Liotta filed a federal lawsuit against Nerium International, selling a skin care called Nerium AD. Liotta says, Nerium has been using social media since October, touting Liotta's "before and after" pics and taking credit for the results. One of his sore spots is them saying the Goodfellas turned back the clock thanks to their skin care. Liotta is NOT HAPPY, saying he never used the product and certainly didn't give permission to use his name or likeness. Liotta is suing the company and one of the investors -- Michael Shouhed who stars in "Shahs of Sunset.”

"Goodfellas" star Ray Liotta claims in court that a pyramid scheme for skin cream doctored his image in before-and-after photos for an online ad campaign he wants, and had, nothing to do with.
In a federal lawsuit, Liotta and his loan-out company Punky Inc. claim Nerium International used the photos to market Nerium AD skin cream on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social network sites.
Liotta also sued Michael Shouhed, whom the Daily Mail newspaper identified as the star of the reality show "Shahs of Sunset."
Nerium claims in its ads that its "age-defying day cream" uses an oleander plant extract to improve the appearance of blemished skin.
Liotta, however, claims that Nerium is a "product-based pyramid scheme" that uses altered before-and-after photos to push a product that does not work as advertised.
