THE wife of fallen surfwear millionaire Matthew Perrin has alleged her signature was forged to secure a high-interest $US3 million ($3.19 million) loan from former world motorcycling champion Mick Doohan.

Mr Doohan, who runs a high-interest-loan operation where rates can exceed 40 per cent, says he lent $US3 million to a company run by Mr Perrin and his former wife Nicole Bricknell in December 2008 – a loan approved after both Mr Perrin and Ms Bricknell signed documentation.

The loan is now the centre of a Supreme Court battle, and documents lodged recently show Ms Bricknell has denied signing the documents.

COURT BATTLE: Doohan's business interests in spotlight

"Yep, it's a forgery. I was going to say 'I can't believe it' … but yeah I can," she allegedly wrote in an email, filed in court.

Mr Perrin claims Ms Bricknell did sign the contract, while Mr Doohan has rejected allegations he was suspicious the loan was not signed off by all company directors.

Mr Doohan's lawyers claim the loan deed was signed by both company directors, or presented as having being signed by them.

However, his lawyers have admitted Mr Doohan got an email – allegedly at the end of January 2009 after the $US3 million loan – from Mr Perrin, which mentioned an "overall master loan document" and included the line "Thanks for respecting Nicole knows nothing about all this".

Mr Doohan is in court to try and overturn a decision which saw him rejected as a creditor to the Perrin family company, which went bust in March 2009.

Its liquidator, Julie Williams of Insolvency and Turnaround Solutions, rejected Mr Doohan's claims to be a creditor.

In a defence, Ms Williams argued the loan was to Mr Perrin directly, and cast doubt on whether the Perrin family company's other director Nicole had agreed to the loan.

Ms Williams' lawyers have filed a "summary of expected evidence" from Ms Bricknell if the matter goes to trial.

It includes that the liquidators had last year emailed Ms Bricknell a copy of the purported loan agreement.

Ms Bricknell, according to the court filing, would be expected to say she had not known about the loan and also replied to the liquidators in an email last year, saying her signature was a "forgery".

Mr Doohan's loan operation claimed the loan was made to the Perrin company and not to Mr Perrin personally, saying the loan deed was signed by both company directors, or presented as having been signed by them.
