theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Steve Harvey has headed to court accusing a company of screwing him out of $200k+ over a deal for a private jet that fell through and now he is demanding the judge order the company to cough up his money ASAP.
Back in November, a company named Business Aircraft Leasing filed suit against the “Family Feud” host accusing him of screwing them out of $400k in renovations he demanded they do to a private jet.
The company claimed that they made a deal with Harvey in April to lease a Gulfstream G-IVSP S/N 1289 but only under the condition that they upgraded the jet’s interior to his likening, including custom carpet, custom seat designs and new upper and lower cabin sidewalls along with other changes that cost over $400k.
They claimed that Harvey paid about half of the cost but then stiffed them for the rest of the money. They filed suit accusing Harvey of screwing them out of the remaining $205k and never leasing the jet from them despite making them make the improvements.
The case was settled months later in January. Then on May 12th, Harvey headed back to court and slapped Federal Aviation Title Company and a woman named Christina Klein with his own federal lawsuit.
The complaint explains that on May 28th 2015, he entered into an agreement with the company – as escrow agents – to hold and not release $250k that were being held in an account in relation to a deal he was working on with Business Aircraft Leasing.
Harvey says the money was only to be released once he accepted the private aircraft, something he says he never did and he never took possession of the jet.
Then in January, he demanded the return of the $208k left in the account on several occasions but they refuse to release his money back to him.
Harvey is suing for breach of contract and demanding $208,959.77 in damages for the remaining amount in the escrow account and punitive damages along with attorney fees.
