The music producer who hosts "The Digital Guy" radio show was sued today by a Hollywood hotel that claims he owes more than $140,000 for canceling a music festival and awards show.
A representative of Bruce Nazarian could not be reached for comment on the breach-of-contract lawsuit filed against him by Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The suit states that the plaintiff and his company, The Digital Guy Foundation Inc., entered an agreement last August in which Nazarian was to stage the Lemonade Weekend 2.0 /Citrus Music Awards from March 27-30 of this year.
The hotel removed a number of rooms from the availability list to accommodate Nazarian, who canceled the event in December after it "became clear that defendants lacked sufficient funds to hold the event," the suit states.
Nazarian is bound by a clause in which he agreed to pay a specified fee if he did not go forward with the show, according to the plaintiffs. He paid an advance deposit of $5,000, but still owes $141,590, the suit states.
"The Digital Guy" is heard weekly on Solar Radio.
