Cole Hamels has filed a very interesting lawsuit against a London-based events promoter regarding the 2015 edition of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Hamels says he paid just under $70,000 for three VIP packages to the lingerie company’s annual runway show in November, which included four nights in a hotel, a limo to the event and reservations at exclusive restaurants in New York City, but Cornucopia Events provided none of the promised items.

In the lawsuit, the pitcher says he and his wife were turned away when they arrived at the fashion show, and are now seeking $150,000 in restitution, claiming the company misrepresented its ability provide the promised tickets and luxury amenities, according to
