An event planning company has filed a lawsuit against comedian Kevin Hart claiming he canceled a party appearance and never gave them a return on their money.

AIM Hospitality Group LLC and president Maksim Vladimirskiy say the Philly native cost them tens of thousands of dollars after he canceled an appearance for an afterparty event they scheduled on July 28, 2018. According to Page Six, the party was located at the Highland Ballroom in Manhattan, which was set up as a celebratory after-party event for Hart’s New Jersey standup performance that happened earlier that night.

The group and Vladimirskiy claim the comedian also promised to make two Instagram posts as early promotion for the party. The Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit was filed on Wednesday. The parties say the deal included Hart getting an advance payment of $10,000 as a deposit and that he would receive $26,000 for his appearance.

Leading up to the party, the group and Vladimirskiy say Hart never promoted the event, and that’s when they realized “Hart had no intention of honoring the Instagram agreement.”

According to the court documents, Aim asked for their $10,000 deposit back a few weeks before the event. AIM says that they’d spent $12,000 on advertising for the event in the midst of dealing with the drama. They claim that from July to September, Hart’s agents “strung along plaintiffs, promising the refund” and blamed others “for sending the refund to the wrong persons.” The lawsuit states Hart’s agent continued to act like Hart’s appearance was still a go, but he had actually canceled his coming to the event on May 18, 2018.

In 2019, AIM allegedly still hadn’t received the money, and Hart’s agent claimed they sent the $10,000 refund to the wrong people. Hart’s “appearance at a venue is worth large sums of money to promoters,” the suit says. “Hart’s mere appearance, even if for a few minutes, draws a crowd.”

They claim Hart’s team “willfully disregarded their contractual obligations by using delay tactics and making false promises to perform,” the suit charges. “Defendants recklessly issued a refund to the wrong party and without any attempt to fix the careless error made excuses for their own mismanagement of accounts.”

Now, they want their money back plus thousands more. The New York Post reports AIM is suing Hart, his two companies, one of his agents, and an executive at one of his companies for a total of $390,000 in damages. Hart has yet to respond.

Cops arrested a man who attempted to bury his wife alive during a violent attack at a California beach Thursday night.

According to The New York Post, cops responded to a 911 call from the woman just before 9 p.m. She told the police that her husband had just tried to kill her on Coronado Beach.

Twenty-three-year-old Jose Luis Mares III was arrested for attacking his wife after the couple got into an argument that quickly escalated to violence while they were at the beach.

Cops told KSWB that Mares III originally tried to throw his wife out into the surf before bringing her to a lifeguard tower, where he tried burying her alive in the sand.

“She said there was a hole in the ground, and the hole had previously been there from probably kids digging it during the day,” Detective Ryan Brennan of the Coronado Police Department told the news outlet. “But during the struggle, she said he threw her in that hole when he began putting sand on top of her.”

The suspect kicked his wife repeatedly and then suddenly stopped and fled. That’s when the courageous woman ran toward Ocean Boulevard, where a passerby found her on the sidewalk and alerted authorities.

Fans are receiving the first look at HBO‘s documentary centered around the life and music career of iconic singer Tina Turner.

On Tuesday, HBO dropped the official trailer for the documentary “Tina.” According to People, the documentary will start at the beginning of her childhood. “My mother used to sit in the window of the kitchen when she was making dinner on Sundays. I used to just watch her. She was just so pretty,” the 81-year-old says in the trailer. “One day, she wasn’t in that window. She was never in it again,” said Tina referring to the moment her mother left her family to get away from the abusive relationship she had with Turner’s father.

“I wanted her to come for me. I waited, and she never did. And it’s alright — you know why?” she adds. “I’m a girl from a cotton field that pulled myself above the destruction and the mistakes. And I’m here for you.”

The documentary was directed by Dan Lindsay, T.J. Martin, and Lightbox. In the description, the doc is described as a “revealing and intimate look at the life and career.” “Tina” will include interviews with Tina in her hometown of Zurich, Switzerland, along with new footage, audiotapes, and personal photos of the songstress.

Hollywood greats like Oprah Winfrey and Tina Turner – who played her in the hit film “What’s Love Got to Do with It” – will also be featured in the documentary. The doc will hit HBO on March 27.
