Actor Jason Mitchell is being accused of defaulting on a massive loan weeks after losing his job on “The Chi.”
According to court documents obtained by The Blast. Comerica Bank is suing Mitchell and his company Blackunicorn, Inc. The suit accuses the actor of breach of contact over an unpaid loan.
In December 2016, Comerica Bank says they provided Mitchell with a $60,000 loan. The bank claims Mitchell was making all required payments until June 2019.
The bank accuses Mitchell of defaulting on the loan the month after he was accused of sexually harrassing his “The Chi” costar Tiffany Boone. The actress complained to producers about Mitchell allegedly sexually harassing her on set. She claimed to feel unsafe while shooting scenes with him.
Comerica Bank says despite numerous demands for payment Mitchell has refused to pay up. The current balance of the loan is $59,268.50 (principal) + $3,149.46 (interest) and $145 (late charges). They say “no part of such balance has been paid.”
Mitchell is being sued for $70,674.16 plus attorney fees.
