Mario Lopez is being slammed for allegedly not showing up to host a party he supposedly got paid for, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The entertainment outlet says that “The X Factor” judge is being sued by a Philadelphia promoter who claims Lopez stood him up. Robert "Bobby" Capone is demanding more than $50,000 in damages.
Capone claims Lopez was scheduled to host an event on Oct. 27, 2012, at The Roxy and Penn’s Landing Caterers for a $15,000 fee.
“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, according to Radar.
“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 continues.
The legal documents claim Lopez breached that contract for an illegitimate reason “to reap temporary financial gain and notoriety at the expense of the Plaintiff.”
Lopez made headlines recently after “The X Factor” host confirmed he and his wife were expecting baby No. 2. In December, Lopez and Courtney Mazza, who have a 2-year-old daughter, tied the knot at a friend's vacation home in Punta Mita, Mexico.
