Steve Harvey is finding himself in some hot water yet again before the year ends. A former employee is accusing the TV host of fraud after a business deal gone wrong. You’ll be surprised what else the “Family Feud” entertainer allegedly said during a meeting with the accuser.
Vincent Dimmock claims that he was hired by the mogul to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie foundation. With that agreement, he was supposed to rake in 12.5 percent of the profit.
Wehn Dimmock delivered the first million, Harvey didn’t pay him the commission.
In fact, the employee believes that all of his efforts of raising money from A-listers to politicians were for no reason because Harvey had no intentions of paying him in the first place.
In the lawsuit, Vincent also recalls a meeting that he had with Harvey and an anonymous investor.
According to TMZ, Steve Harvey disparaged women, blamed Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry for giving him bad financial advice and also blamed Barack Obama for Harvey’s “disastrous meeting with Donald Trump.”
This comes after Harvey’s horrible year in the media.
Starting with his controversial meet up with Donald Trump, to his list of demands while on-set being revealed, to a distasteful joke about Flint Michigan — and that’s only the beginning!
Dimmock adds that Harvey and his foundation were in bad financial shape due to these incidences and more.
Todd Frank, who serves as Steve’s agent, was able to vouch for his client and friend.
He claims: “It sounds fake. Steve is the most loyal guy in the world. I’ve never been stiffed on a commission from Steve Harvey in 21 years.”
Harvey has yet to comment on the accusations.
Do you believe that Steve is guilty of fraud? Do you think that he is at fault for all of the media mishaps that he’s been creating?
