Rangers ace Cole Hamels has made over $100 million in his 10-year career, so if the guy wants to spend $70,000 to see some Victoria’s Secret models who am I to judge? The one problem for Cole: the money he dropped didn’t get him shit.
According to the NY Daily News, Hamels paid for three luxury VIP packages last year and didn’t even get to see the show:
The former Philadelphia Phillies star filed the lawsuit in Philadelphia on Friday. He alleges Cornucopia Events failed to get him and his wife into the 2015 New York City lingerie show even though he paid nearly $70,000 for three VIP packages.
The suit says the money was to cover a four-night stay in a luxury hotel, a limousine with champagne, access to exclusive restaurants and goodie bags. The suit alleges Hamels and his party got none of the perks and were denied entry to the event.
We’re pouring one out for Cole today at the BC office. Total robbery. Hopefully he gets his $150,000 in damages.
