Kevin Costner is suing a music promoter, alleging the company breached a contract to back his fledgling music career.
The 52-year-old movie actor-turned-musician filed an April 3 lawsuit against Mahee Worldwide Ventures Inc., accusing it of fraud and breach of contract.
Costner is seeking damages in excess of $8.5 million. Kevin Costner is the lead singer and songwriter for the Kevin Costner Band.
The lawsuit claims Costner's music company, Kevin's Music LLC, entered into a two-year agreement with Mahee Worldwide Ventures which would allow the band to perform as many as five concerts annually. Mahee would also create and maintain a Web site marketing Costner's band.
The suit claims Mahee reneged on all its agreements. Mahee Worldwide Ventures has not responded to requests for comment.
