Bon Jovi Sued Over Arena Football Fumbling
Posted by: Jasper is offline Jasper - January 29th, 2009 01:13 AM


This is not what Jon Bon Jovi had in mind when he crooned "Lay Your Hands on Me."

A former sales manager for the Philadelphia Soul, the arena football team co-owned by the rocker, is suing Bon Jovi and his partners for failing to pay $125,000 in wages and commissions, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Per the lawsuit, filed in Pennsylvania's Common Pleas Court Jan. 9 by Joseph Krause, Bon Jovi and his co-owners decided to shutter team operations and grant staffers two weeks' severance. But Krause says he was never paid $83,359 in commission for the previous serason, when the team won the ArenaBowl. That's in addition to $41,456 in commissions for the 2009 season. The sputtering Arena Football League canceled the rest of the 2009 season due to the economic downturn.

To add insult to injury, Krause alleged the "Living on a Prayer" singer had the nerve to joke to employees: "If you see us on the street begging for food, please give us a hand."

Reps for Bon Jovi and the Soul did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.
