Steve Harvey is being sued by a former employee who claims that the “Family Inheritance” host jerked him off in a bad deal, has allegedly not paying him millions of dollars he said he collected for This good cause.

Harvey’s agent, Todd Frank, denies the allegations.

“It sounds fake,” Frank told TMZ of the claims from ex-employee, Vincent Dimmock.

Dimmock, who complains for the good purpose of fraud, claims that Harvey hired him back in April to help raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation, as well as the other companies, according to TMZ. In exchange for his work, Dimmock said that he is the promised 12.5 percent of everything he brought.

In the suit, which was obtained by TMZ, Dimmock said that when he held up his end of the bargain and delivered $1 million through his high-profile connections, but Harvey allegedly refused to pay the employee commission. Not only the TV mogul allegedly refuse to pay him, immediately after the completion of the task, Dimmock said Harvey seemed to have no intentions of paying him.

Also, while working with Harvey, Dimmock claims to have discovered how Harvey felt about some of his fellow entertainer pals in the industry. During an investor meeting with Harvey in May, the TV star reportedly blamed TV queen Oprah Winfrey and film producer and actor Tyler Perry for giving him bad financial advice. He is said to have been the fault of the usa, Barack Obama for Harvey’s “disastrous encounter with Donald Trump.”

In addition to the financial problems, Dimmock said that Harvey believed bad PR moves were also the fault of the company that are destructive.

But while Dimmock are the opinions of Harvey, Frank has a much different opinion of his long-time customer.

“Steve is the most loyal man in the world,” Frank said. “I’ve never cheated on a commission from Steve Harvey in 21 years.”
