Happening hot spot Bellevue, Wa. was supposed to be the scene for a big New Year’s Eve shindig hosted by Ne-Yo. And it probably would have been awesome … if only he showed up. According to a lawsuit filed last week in Maryland, Wet Entertainment booked Ne-Yo for the NYE gig and paid him $95,000 up front.
The organizers claim they made all sorts of arrangements for the show — promotion, travel, hotel, etc. They claim Ne-Yo’s people made it to Washington — but no Ne-Yo. The show was 86′d. Wet is suing Ne-Yo and the booking company that made the deal for the $95K plus more than $1 mil in damages. The booking company had no comment. A call to Ne-Yo’s agent was not returned.
