Yes. YES. YES!!!!!! This is the most Cole Hamels lawsuit ever.
Cole, who is in the middle of a $144 million contract, and Heidi Hamels are suing Cornucopia Events, a VIP lifestyle company, over their failure to provide them tickets to the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, held in New York, as part of a package that cost $70k and included tickets to the afterparty and a four-night stay in a five-star London hotel. They are seeking $50k of damages for each of misrepresentation, fraud and negligance.
The lawsuit was filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas and was first obtained by Forbes. We got our hands on a copy, and the details are incredible.
Early in 2015, Cornucopia told the Hameleseseseses that the show would definitely be held in London and accommodations would be at the Kensington Hotel. In May, Cole and Heidi were charged for the package, and then, five days before the show, on November 5, they were informed that, whoops, it was in New York but to just show up anyway and they would get in. They didn’t.
I mean this, this is incrdible:
Here’s the full lawsuit– we’re still making our way through it:
