Kevin Hart is being sued by his former business partner for unpaid commissions. Hart is being accused of failing to pay commission on a big marketing deal and now iGo Marketing & Entertainment, who put the contract together is suing the comedian for nearly $2 million. In the lawsuit, iGo claims they secured numerous deals for Hart over the years with the likes of Miller-Coors, Coke-Zero, Vitamin Water, Electronic Arts, two deals with Caesars Entertainment, the Cosmopolitan Hotel and a deal with Verizon Wireless. They claim Hart always made good on the deal … that is, until it came to a deal with Rally Healthcare in 2015. iGo claims they negotiated a three-year deal between Kevin Hart and Rally that called for the comedian to get paid partly in cash and part in stock options.
In 2015, Hart then terminated the deal with iGo but they claim that didn’t allow him to stop paying the commission on deals they locked down. They claim Hart did not pay them their 15% on the third year option of the deal or for the value of the stock option. They are suing for breach of contract and are seeking no less than $1.8 million from the comedian.
