A company that bought the rights to convert Wayne Newton's Las Vegas home into a museum is suing the entertainer over allegations that he unreasonably delayed the project to ensure it never opens.
The lawsuit filed by CSD LLC seeks to have the Newton family immediately vacate their home to allow the $50 million project honoring the Las Vegas legend's music career to move forward.
Under the deal, Newton, his wife and his daughter agreed to move to a newly constructed $2 million home on the estate so their mansion could be converted into a museum.
The lawsuit claims the family won't relocate or turn over their personal memorabilia. It also claims Newton sexually harassed a young female employee.
Newton's lawyer, J. Stephen Peek, called the allegations "salacious" lies.
