Keenan Ivory Wayans

The Holiday Vacation Disaster!

8/27/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Keenan Ivory Wayans was just ordered to pay thousands of dollars for a holiday vacation he never took ... all because he blew off the fine print in the contract he signed with a travel agent.

According to court docs filed in Beverly Hills and obtained by TMZ, Wayans had booked an expensive trip to South America with a travel agency back in January ... but apparently he had a change of heart.

The travel agency claims Wayans cancelled the trip AFTER the standard 14 day cancellation window -- and was hit with a $5,105 penalty ... but he never paid.

Now, a judge has ruled in favor of the agency -- which means Wayans has to pay up. Calls to Wayans were not immediately returned.

Moral of the story -- always read the fine print.

Oh no!! You mean another rich, spoiled, entitled celebrity has to pay their way in life like the rest of us? That's an outrage and certainly qualifies as a disaster.

Sounds like the Travel Agent paid up front with their own money for his trip w/o getting the money from Keenan first. Then he cancelled, leaving her holding the bag and the bill. Tour operators won't confirm a trip or book a trip w/o money. So stupid Travel Agency paid for him and never got their money to pay the Tour Operator. Good thing they got it in writing!!!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Another celebrity skipping out on the bill? No. It just can't be.

That penalty sounds pretty stiff to me, but then it allegedly was a "expensive" vacation.

Bottom-line, conspicuous consumption will bite you on the ass. If you don't even have a bird in the hand, then you certainly don't book a vacation expecting two in the bush.

In these times of the internet and booking trips yourself, this agecny has killed any chance of getting repeat business ore any referrals. I’m sure had they waived any fee’s that were not coming out of their pockets, he would have used them again and possibly refered them to his 50+ brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews and cousins…get where I’m going. There are a lottttttt of Wayans..5k vs.$$$$$$$$$$$$$ of future business...worth it? I think not!
