'Cupid Shuffle' Guy Sued

Down, Down ...

Pay Your Bills, Pay Your Bills

Cupid is being slapped with a lawsuit -- not for causing more bad wedding reception dancing than the Macarena -- but for not paying his manager more than $100k.

Brick Wall Management filed the Federal suit in NY against Cupid -- real name Bryson Bernard -- claiming he signed a deal for the company to manage him ... back in 2007 ... the same year "Cupid Shuffle" was released.

TMZ obtained a copy of the suit, and in the docs BWM alleges Cupid agreed to pay commissions to the company for a period of 15 years.

BWM claims it can't calculate exactly how much Cupid owes in commissions because he refuses to reveal any details about his income -- so they're guestimating at least $100,000.

Calls to Cupid's reps have not been returned -- but we suspect the real issue here might be he hasn't had a hit since the 'Shuffle.' So, really ... what's to manage?

Ok, go ahead ... y'know you want to do the damn dance.

TMZ when are you going to realize that we have no idea who these rappers are. You're just wasting your time posting articles on them.
