Eriq Gardner from Hollywoodreporter.com is reporting:
Two weeks ago, BRET MICHAELS showed up in Syracuse ready to perform a concert. He arrived at the venue only to find that the gig had been postponed without his knowledge.
Now, the rocker and Celebrity Apprentice winner, fuming from the incident, has just filed a $5 million lawsuit against the concert promoter who allegedly claimed that the show didn't happen because Michaels was going to appear on TV instead.
Around the same time that Michaels was scheduled to perform in Syracuse, he appeared on NBC's America's Got Talent. Can a modern-day rock star appear at two locations at the same time? Thanks to the wonders of technology, he can. The TV show was taped.
So on Monday, Michaels sued Michael Banks and Aloha Events for breaching his contract and exposing him to public contempt and ridicule with allegedly defamatory statements about his schedule.
