Extra host Mario Lopez is being sued by a Philadelphia promoter after he allegedly failed to show at a paid appearance, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained the lawsuit.
According to Robert “Bobby” Capone, he hired Lopez to host an event on October 27, 2012 at The Roxy and/or Penn’s Landing Caterers for an agreed fee of $15,000.
“Pursuant to the agreement, the Plaintiff paid to the defendant an advance of Eight Thousand ($8,000.00) dollar on or about July 16, 2012,” the lawsuit states.
“On or about October 10, 2012 the Plaintiff was advised by, the Defendant and/or his representative that the Defendant would not be honoring the aforesaid agreement with the plaintiff because of ‘new commitments’ that have ‘just arose’.”
The lawsuit, filed on March 28, 2013, claims that Lopez breached the agreement for no reason “other than to reap temporary financial gain and notoriety at the expense of the Plaintiff.”
Capone is seeking damages in excess of $50,000.
Dancing With The Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy was booked in Lopez’s absence.
