Bruno Mars has been accused of stiffing a concert promoter in a new lawsuit.
According to legal documentation, seen by unCrazed, Major Entertainment, a concert promotion and booking company, is suing Peter Hernandez — Bruno — and his publicist, Michelle Reece.
A deal was allegedly entered in July 2017 with Michelle supposedly portraying herself as Bruno’s representative.
The Treasure singer was allegedly supposed to perform in Springfield, Missouri on October 23, 2017; “This concert was a special engagement because the date was an open date during the Bruno Mars “24k Magic” World Tour (with dates Little Rock, Arkansas set for October 22, 2017 and Houston, Texas on October 24, 2017.)”
In preparation, the promotion company allegedly paid for ticket sales, rehearsals, advertising, security and the venue. Bruno’s hotel, security, food, transportation and dressing rooms were also paid for by Major Entertainment.
In the lawsuit, it claims that Michelle told them the 33-year-old “would not perform on October 23.” with the claim furthering, “As a result of the cancellation of the concert, Plaintiff suffered losses of approximately $77, 800 advanced to secure the concert, lost business opportunities associated with the commitment to the Bruno Mars concert, and lost the expected revenue and earning from the Bruno Mars concert.”
They’re suing both Reece and Mars in excess of $1 million in damages.
