21 Feb

Akon, akon with white background, akon shirtlessAkon is up to his neck in $51,000 of construction bills on his Georgia mansion … and he still hasn’t paid up — this according to a new lawsuit filed by a local contracting company.

According to celebrity gossip site, TMZ, Southern Electric filed the lawsuit against Akon in Georgia Superior Court, claiming it completed over $344,000 of work on Akon’s place — electric work, framing, molding — but he refused to pay $51,941 on their final invoice.

According to the legal documents filed, Southern Electric contacted Akon’s mommy last November … not just to tattle, but because his mother was acting as his agent in the deal … but still, S.E. has not received a dime.

They’re now suing for breach of contract for the amount allegedly owed, plus interest.

FYI — Akon’s Georgia palace is a two-story four-bedroom, eight-bath model that he reportedly paid 1.65 million dollars for.

New Boyz

The former managers of rap duo New Boyz say the rappers owe $100,000 for breaching a management contract.

According to EntLawDigest, Introspect Entertainment entered into a management contract with rappers New Boyz in February 2011, and under the terms of the contract, the company was required to manage the rappers until their second album was completed and promoted.

But, New Boyz allegedly tried to end the management agreement before the second album was finished, and refused to pay Introspect money it is owed.

Introspect claims it has lost $100,000 from the breach.

The company sued in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and a judgment declaring that New Boyz owes past and future commissions. Introspect is represented by Hayes Michel of Baker & Hostetler.

We’ve got a Situation Here: Serious Pimp Accuses ‘Jersey Shore’ Star of Walking With $25,000

24 Jan

Jersey Shore” star Michael Sorrentino, also known as “The Situation,” took $25,000 from clothing company Serious Pimp, but refused to wear the company’s clothes on the TV show under a “co-branding” agreement, Serious Pimp claims in Orange County Court.

Serious Pimp claims it gave the former fitness trainer and underwear model the right to approve a line of t-shirts, but he never gave it a thumbs-up, or down. Instead, Serious Pimp says, he walked away with $25,000 in profit advances.

Also named as defendants are Sorrentino’s agent, MPS Entertainment, and legal counsel, Bonfiglio & Asterita, both of whom were later added as beneficiaries in the contract.

“Certain misconduct by MPS and Bonfiglio during their time as beneficiaries to the agreement further caused, accelerated, encouraged and solicited The Situation to breach the agreement,” Serious Pimp (SP) claims. “This conduct included, among other things, MPS’s and Bonfiglio’s false representations to The Situation that SP was not involved in any actual development of the branded products and that SP did not have a comprehensive sales plan in place to market such branded products.”

Serious Pimp sued for breach of contract, fraud and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage. It seeks to rescind the contract and recoup its money, plus damages.

Nada Alnajafi, of Pivotal IP in Santa Monica, Calif., Vito Torchia Jr., Deron Colby and Sasan Behnood, of Brookstone Law in Newport Beach, Calif. are representing Serious Pimp.
