The guy says Bon Jovi stiffed him out of $125,000 in back payments and severance.

Maybe this guy suing him should ask Hilary Clinton for some money after the "Jovi" does her concert to raise money for her presidency campaign fund. Maybe he can do a concert for me..I lost my job, then my house, then my car. I own nothing now. Never thought I'd ever see this coming. Bon Jovi please play for me, I need some money just to live...

Once again the ones that know nothing always have a stupid comment! Along with Mr. Krause, John Bon Blowme owes money to a lot of us hard working people who invested in OUR team! Hey moso, if you were a contractor building a house and 1/2 the way through they pulled the plug on the job, would YOU want to get paid for what was done?

All this aggravation for 125 thousand dollars ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! HEY John pay up. You had no problem standing in the spot light when your team won and i'm sure your sales manager did alot more to get you to that point and this is how you pay him back?? you ought to be ashamed of yourself

JoviFan47 probably has hit the nail right on the head. J Krause is probably an opportunistic parasite who wants to take someone's money - so now he'll go for the Soul owners. Jon Bon Jovi wouldn't hesitate to pay what someone rightfully is due. So Mr Krause is suing for "back payments" . Well, like they say "paybacks are a bitch" - he should be paid back with a big black eye. Jon bon Jovi would gladly pay any hardworking individual who actually earned the money.
