Nicola Peltz’s family have hired a ‘wild pit bull’ of a lawyer at the wedding planners who are accusing them of botching their £3million ceremony with Brooklyn Beckham.
Brief Marty Singer, nicknamed “Mad Dog,” represents the mega-rich clan suing a company that was fired just weeks before the Florida bash last April.
He charges £800 an hour and is famous for helping big names – including Sylvester Stallone, Charlie Sheen, Bill Cosby and Prince Andrew – salvage their reputations.
A source said: “Singer is famous for his pit bull tactics and that’s what Nicola is looking for. This ongoing legal case has the potential to really damage her reputation, and she doesn’t take it lightly, so she called in the big guns.

“He’s a lawsuit savage and his reputation precedes him. Hiring him will cost millions, but she and her family think it’s worth it.”
The lawsuit is said to burden 28-year-old Transformers actress Nicola, 28, and cause sleepless nights for 24-year-old Brooklyn’s mother, Victoria.
Nicola’s billionaire father Nelson Peltz, 80, is suing Nicola Braghin and Arianna Grijalba, who helped plan the three-day wedding at his massive Palm Beach, Florida estate last April.
Mr. Peltz, who founded burger chain Wendy’s, hired it six weeks before the end when the previous planner dropped out by “amicable agreement.”
But he released her just nine days later, accusing her of not being able to cope with the size of the occasion and wanting his £132,000 bail back.
Arianna and Nicola have countersued for breach of contract – branding him a ‘billionaire bully’.

They are also seeking damages of at least £41,000 plus expenses from bride Nicola, her mother Claudia and wedding designer Rishi Patel.
They claim things were so disorganized — with multiple guest lists and a bride who was reportedly too busy to talk on the phone — that things quickly went downhill. The chaos is revealed in court filings containing hundreds of messages.
Nicola has reportedly spent £85,000 on her hair and makeup – and her mum is said to have asked the planners not to tell Nelson.
The source added: “The feeling is that this could get out of hand and hit Nicola and the rest of the family very badly.
“The hope is that Singer can prevent that.”
Nicola and Victoria are said to have had a fight over the bride’s choice of dress.
The Peltzes have been contacted for comment.
