Vincent Dimmock alleges Harvey hired him to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation and other ventures, but was never paid his 12.5% cut that was agreed upon, according to the suit obtained by the gossip site.
Dimmock reportedly delivered $1 million through his high-profile connections, but Harvey refused to pay him the commission and Dimmock then claimed in the suit that Harvey appeared to have no intentions of paying him at all.
Harvey allegedly blamed Oprah and Tyler Perry for bad financial advice when meeting with an investor introduced by Dimmock in May. He also made disparaging comments about women during the business discussion, according to the suit.
Dimmock claims Harvey was in bad financial shape with his foundation because of several P.R. mishaps and a meeting with President Trump.
Todd Frank, Harvey’s longtime agent, said in a statement to TMZ that “It sounds fake.”
