Former Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi, are taking to the courts after being stiffed for VIP tickets to the Victoria's Secret fashion show. Law360 obtained the documents in which the Hamels claim they never received the near $70,000 VIP package to the event, which, among other things, included a four-night hotel stay and access to the event after party.
Cornucopia Events, the company responsible for the ticket package, and Mini Vohra, their Managing Director, are being sued for over $50,00 in damages. The suit began February 19th in the Court of Common Pleas for Philadelphia County.
The report alleges that Cole and Heidi were initially promised tickets to be personally delivered. However, the two were denied entry at the door of the fashion show.
Cole Hamels spent parts of ten seasons with the Phillies, before being traded to the Texas Rangers last summer. Three of the players the Phillies received in that transaction now rank within the team's Top 10 Prospects.
