The homie — and wedding planners to the stars — is in the news. And for the first time in history it’s not about his wonderful gift of planning extravagant weddings.
According the NY Daily Times, the reality start of the hit show ‘My Fair Wedding,” is at the center of a bitter lawsuit filed by a New York City couple making strong allegations that the highly respected wedding planner not only broke his vow to plan their lavish affair, but also tripled the fee in the process.
The star of “My Fair Wedding” was more party pooper than planner in November 2010 when Brooklyn-born Perez and her beloved tied the knot in the Dominican Republic, the suit charged.
“Due to the defendant’s arrogant and heartless actions, plaintiffs have been harmed personally and financially,” the now happily-married couple said in their lawsuit.
After bumping the Punta Cana wedding bill from $10,000 to more than $30,000, the toothy Tutera — whose client roster includes Elton John and Jennifer Lopez — didn’t even provide the invitations, the flowers or a DJ.
His biggest whiff on their prenuptial agreement: Tutera never delivered the wedding cake, leaving the jilted couple waiting at the altar with no dessert, the lawsuit charged.
The news article goes on to bash David by calling him an ‘ego-maniac,” which for national media outlet one could find a tad bias. And Tutera discounts the aforementioned claims entirely.
Tutera claimed he had to tend to a sick relative when he blew off the nervous couple shortly before their Nov. 6, 2010, wedding.
Tutera’s publicist Eda Kalkay, in an email, said the planner was “not interested in commenting at this time” on the marital discord.
Earlier this year, a bitter legal brawl between Tutera and a Boston “Bridezilla” over her $300,000 Singapore wedding was quietly resolved.
Yikes! I’ve met David only once (thanks to my lovelies at 135 Street Agency) so I can’t really comment one way or the other. All I can say is that Tutera came off nothing but professional and honest in the 45-60 mins spent with him.
Lawsuits suck in general. Let’s hope this gets resolved quickly.
