Steve Harvey is in some more hot water at the moment. This time, he's being sued by a man who claims the TV mogul stiffed him of commissions he agreed to pay for raising a million dollars for his charity. He also claims the television host made some disparaging comments about three of Hollywood and pop culture's most treasured figures.

According to TMZ, Vincent Dimmock claimed Harvey hired him in April 2017 to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation. And for his services, he was promised 12.5 percent of everything he brought in.
In the suit, Dimmock said he had direct access to high-level executives, A-list entertainers and political figures, including "a former president," allowing him to rally enough pledges to gather $20 million.
He claimed, however, that after he delivered on the first million, the comedian refused to pay him his commission, with him later adding that the mogul never even intended to pay him in the first place.
This leads to various allegations Dimmock made, unrelated to the job, thereafter. He said that during a meeting with an investor whom he introduced Harvey to in May, the talk show host made sexist comments about women, blamed Oprah and Tyler Perry for providing him with bad financial advice and even labeled president Barack Obama as being responsible for his "disastrous meeting with Donald Trump."
He also added that the Steve and Marjorie Foundation was in terrible financial standing as a result of several P.R. blunders delivered by the actor/comic himself, including him mocking Asian men and his now-infamous meeting with Trump.
Harvey's agent, Todd Frank, has responded to Dimmock's claims via TMZ, saying, "It sounds fake. Steve is the most loyal guy in the world. I've never been stiffed on a commission from Steve Harvey in 21 years."
