LOS ANGELES  (AFP) - A homeless man who has made a plea for Justin Timberlake to help him after being mocked in a video is not suing the singer-actor for financial damages, his lawyer said on Tuesday.

"There's no lawsuit here against Justin Timberlake. We're not seeking a financial deal, it's a criminal case," Ms Gloria Allred told AFP.

The high-profile lawyer is publicizing the demands of the man, who goes by "Eddie" and who has lived for six or seven years off and on Skid Row, a Los Angeles neighbourhood with a big homeless population.

In an open letter, Eddie asked for Timberlake to arrange a meeting with him "very soon" through Allred "so you can understand my situation, and so that we can talk about this situation involving so many others who are homeless".
