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.
