Comedian Dave Chappelle Sued by Ex-Manager

December 14, 2005 09:41:45 GMT

Comedian Dave Chappelle would probably feel it difficult for him to laugh or even make others laugh as he's facing a breach-of-contact suit filed by Mustafa Abuelhija who claimed to be his personal manager September 2004 until he was fired in June of this year. In his lawsuit filed in New York federal court Abuelhija claimed Chappelle owes him more than $864,500.

On his complaint Abuelhija alleged that he has helped to broker deals that earned the comic at least $10 million. But, shortly after his return from South Africa last June, the comic immediately told Abuelhija that his services would no longer be needed and dismissed him with only a "paltry $40,000 as an 'advance' against the sum" that Abuelhija claimed he was owed.
