LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- David Schwimmer has filed a $2 million defamation lawsuit in Los Angeles against a man the "Friends" actor calls a "scheming pathological liar."

Schwimmer is suing Aaron Tonken for allegedly telling the National Enquirer he threatened not to attend a charity fundraiser unless he was given two pricey Rolex watches, Celebrity Justice reported Wednesday.

The lawsuit calls Tonken, who last month was sentenced to more than five years in prison for fraud, a "scheming pathological liar" who attempted to describe Schwimmer as a "cold hearted opportunist."

At one time, Tonken was the king of celebrity fundraisers, even getting Bill and Hillary Clinton to attend one of his events.

Authorities said Tonken defrauded his celebrity donors.
