Kevin Costner claims his music promoter violates contract term

Kevin Costner has sued a music promoter, claiming the company reneged on a contract to back the actor's fledgling music career.

Costner, 52, filed the lawsuit Tuesday, accusing Mahee Worldwide Ventures Inc. of breach of contract and fraud and seeking damages in excess of $8.5 million (EUR6.4 million).

Costner is the lead singer in the Kevin Costner Band, for which he also writes songs. He also has a company, Kevin's Music LLC, that manages his musical activities.

The lawsuit claims Costner's company and the promoter entered into a two-year agreement in January that would allow the actor's band to perform in as many as five concerts a year. Mahee also would create and maintain a Web site marketing Costner's band, the lawsuit says.

But Mahee has failed to hold up its end of the deal, according to the lawsuit.

"Instead of following through on their promises, defendants continued to make false promises and ultimately disappeared," the lawsuit said.

An e-mail message left for Mahee was not immediately returned Thursday.
