Carey Hart to Hard Rock: You Cooked the Books!

1/11/2011 2:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Freestyle motocross rider Carey Hart's company is suing the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, claiming he was robbed blind by the hotel over his investment in the Wasted Space Lounge.

Carey Hart Sues Hard Rock Hotel

Hart's company, S&H Projects, invested in the lounge, which opened in July, 2008. Hart -- who's married to P!nk -- claims the Hard Rock hid profits and inflated expenses, thus denying S&H its fair share.

Hart's company claims the Hard Rock created the deception to mask some serious mismanagement problems with the hotel.

Wasted Space shut down last August. Hart's company wants unspecified damages.

The Hard Rock denies the allegations, and claims Wasted Space never made a dime in profits.

Not sure what is going on over at the HR, but since it was sold I have not been a fan of the changes that the current owners have made. Wasted Space was a great idea and should have worked,RED DRAGONS.

Not a shock, the Hard Rock International is suing Hard Rock Las Vegas for mismanagement overall, they are actually trying to strip it of the "Hard Rock" brand name. Lot of corruption and mismanagement seems to be taking place at that location.

Carey, Buddy...

In a deal like this when you don't control the P&L you need to insist on a percentage of the topline revenue. I'm sure there will be a next time...

If Wasted Space opened in 2008 it was bad timing because that was right when the last recession hit.
Not hard to see how the last 2 years were without profit.

A lot of people stayed out of Vegas until their finances improved.


Vegas is just now starting to come out of the recession. The convention bookings for 2011 are looking good once again.

I used to work for the Hard Rock Hotel From 2000 to 2004 as a Bartender. I can tell you when Peter Morton owned the Hotel it was still a great Hotel & Casino, it has now blown up into a overly trendy place for douche bags and nobody's claiming to be somebody's!

Ever since the expansion and Rehab party at the Hard Rock Hotel started filmling and airing on TRUtv it is a completely different place from when I worked there and even visited the Hotel often after I had moved back to California.

I feel sorry for all my friends who continue to work in that environment, most of them have the same views as well as other non flattering ones as well.

TURN WASTED SPACE BACK INTO THE PEA**** LOUNGE!!! LOL

Carey Hart is hardly broke. His wife, P!nk is listed on www.celebritynetworth.com having $70 Million Dollars, so I doubt that he is wanting for anything. Come on, Carey and P!nk just easily bought their first home together, an $11,850,000 Million Dollar Malibu Estate in the Point Dume area of Malibu. Their neighbor is Matthew McConaughey! And their first Bundle of JOY coming May `11! Carey is prolly suing over the principals. They obviously don't need the money. Go get them, Carey!
