Unlike her A Different World character Whitley Gilbert, it appears that money isn't coming easy for Jasmine Guy these days. Turns out the actress is currently being sued by American Express for more than $86,000 in unpaid credit card bills, which include delinquent costs, interests and lawyer fees.
