Real Wigman From "Wolf of Wall Street" Is Suing Paramount

[TMZ] An ex-business partner of the real “Wolf of Wall Street” is suing Martin Scorsese and Paramount for $25 MILLION because he claims they made him look like a hooker banging, toupee-wearing party animal … which he partly denies.

TMZ has learned Andrew Greene — a former exec at Stratton Oakmont — filed a federal lawsuit which claims the Oscar nominated flick defamed the hell out of him by portraying him as a criminal and a drug user … but perhaps worst of all … it mocked his premature hair loss.

In the suit, Greene says his real life co-workers … including Leo DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort … gave him the nickname “Wigman” … due to the rug he wore.

In the movie, Greene is portrayed through the character Nicky “Rugrat” Koskoff — played by P.J. Byrne — and just as Greene claims in his suit … co-workers mock the guy’s hair piece pretty mercilessly.

According to the suit, Greene also takes umbrage with the movie’s portrayal of him doing illegal and unethical activities … such as screwing hookers in front of co-workers.

Greene claims the characterization has damaged his professional rep as an investment banker — and the filmmakers never got his permission to use his name, likeness or identity.

Not only does he want $25 mil in damages from Paramount and Scorsese’s production company — he also wants them to hand over all copies of the film … and yank it out of theaters.

Good luck with that.
