Kevin Hart
Funnyman Kevin Hart is being sued by a nightclub after he ditched a scheduled performance.

Comedian Kevin Hart is being sued by a Miami nightclub after allegedly pulling out of an event so he could perform as host at a different venue with basketball star Dwyane Wade.

Lawyers for the Cameo Nightclub in Miami, Florida have filed a law suit against the 33-year-old comedian and his manager, claiming the comic agreed to host a party the night of 22 June but backed out at the eleventh hour to host a Miami Heat Championship party at nearby Dream Nightclub.

According to court documents obtained by celebrity website, venue bosses allege Hart hosted the party, which was also attended by BET's Terrence J, despite signing up to oversee the Cameo gig.

Nightclub chiefs claim they spent $4,680 (£3,120) on promoting Hart's appearance and $4,680 on promotional materials, but lost out after he choose to attend the rival club's gig.

They are seeking at least $15,000 (£10,000) to cover the loss of profits and damage to their reputation.

Hart's representative insists they believed the issue had been resolved.

However it looks like the Think Like a man star is not letting his legal woes gets to him. He was recently named number 95 out of 100 on Forbes' list of top-earning entertainers and his movie Let Me Explain is also now the fourth top-grossing stand-up film of all time.
