According to the Hollywood Reporter, AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler's former management company sued his current lawyer on Thursday claiming she botched his contract negotiation and cost Tyler a $6 million- $8 million deal to return to American Idol.
In a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Kovac Media Group claims that West Hollywood entertainment lawyer Dina LaPolt was brought in to help the Aerosmith frontman negotiate a new Idol deal at the end of last season, his second on the hit Fox singing competition.
But according to the suit, LaPolt ended up poisoning the negotiation so badly that Idol producers ultimately offered Tyler no raise, which prompted him to exit the program.
