PRETORIA, SA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — South African promoter Duncan Heafield has taken Shoglo Management Services and their two directors Hazel Feldman and her son Anthony Feldman, promoters he had partened with previously. In the suit, Heafield is accusing the two Sholgo directors of defamatory comments which resulted in the postponement of Josh Groban tour being promoted in South Africa by Heafield's firm, Kusasa.
Heafield had been in the news previously over legal wrangling with Hazel Feldman and in the wake of a series of allegedly botched Celine Dion concerts that Kusasa produced.
Hazel Feldman had been seeking to recover money from Heafield, who she claims owes her $2 million over the Dion concert. Feldman stated in a court filing that Heafield was "robbing Peter to pay Paul", that the Dion show was his only source of income and she further alleged that Heafield had misappropriated funds.
Now Heafield is asserting that it was these statements that induced Groban to "postpone" the South African tour dates and is seeking recompensation from the Feldmans to the tune of $6.9 million for the canceled dates $3.3 million for breach of contract, $1 million for defamation of character; and $250,000 for breach of confidentiality. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
