Bruno Mars is demanding a concert promoter’s $1 million lawsuit against him be thrown out.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Bruno Mars (real name: Peter Hernandez) is asking a judge to dismiss all claims against him. He is denying all allegations of wrongdoing.
Earlier this year, a concert promoter and booking company, Major Entertainment, sued Bruno and a publicist named Michelle Reece. They accused the singer of blowing off a scheduled concert and demanded $1 million in damages.
In newly filed documents, Bruno says the lawsuit makes no allegations he ever had contact with Major Entertainment.
He points out the promoter claims to be the “victim of a scam at the hands of defendant Michelle D. Reece (“Reece”). Plaintiff alleges that Reece somehow duped Plaintiff into believing that she was “an agent” for the Grammy-Award winning songwriter, producer, dancer, choreographer, and instrumentalist Bruno Mars.”
Bruno adds, “Plaintiff also acknowledges that it turns out that Reece never had a contract with Mars.”
Further, “Plaintiff does not allege that it had any contact with Mars or Mars’ authorized representatives, much less a binding contract. Indeed, Plaintiff openly concedes that neither it nor Reece ever had any contact or a contract with Mars or his representatives.” Bruno is demanding all claims against him be dismissed. Reece has yet to respond to the lawsuit."
