Anna Kournikova's parents sue her over Miami Beach house



MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Anna Kournikova is being sued by her parents, who say the 22-year-old tennis starlet has taken over the waterfront home the three jointly own.

Sergei and Alla Kournikova filed the lawsuit last week in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. They want the seven-bedroom home "partitioned," meaning they want money for their share of the home. It was purchased for $5 million in 2000.

Her agent, David Schwab, said Thursday he was unaware of the lawsuit and had no immediate comment.

Kournikova, who has never won a tournament and is known mostly for her supermodel looks, has not played competitive tennis in more than a year because of injuries.
