Chappelle Sued by Former Manager
Dave Chappelle
HOLLYWOOD - Funnyman Dave Chappelle is facing a court battle with his former manager Mustafa Abuelhija, who claims the comedian owes him a portion of his TV show profits.
Abuelhija filed a breach-of-contract suit against Chappelle in Manhattan Federal Court yesterday, alleging the comedian owes him at least $864,500.

Chappelle's ex-manager claims he helped broker deals which earned Chappelle $10 million, during the 10-month period he served as his personal manager.

The 33-year-old walked away from his Comedy Central Chappelle's Show TV series earlier this year and fled to a spiritual retreat in South Africa.

Abuelhija claims Chappelle returned from South Africa and told him his services were no longer needs and paid him a "paltry $40,000 as an 'advance' against the sum" he was owed.

Abuelhija is also demanding profits from Chappelle's reported $50 million deal with Comedy Central.
