Singer John Mayer has been hit with a lawsuit attempting to recover money for the victims of a Ponzi scheme. TMZ reports that Mayer has been sued by trustees trying to track down over $100 million that was snagged in a scheme by Darren Berg, who is doing eighteen years in prison for conning investors. The lawsuit claims that Mayer, through the booking agency Grabow and Associates, was paid $465,000 that was taken from the scheme for a booking at an event in 2008.
Mayer's lawyer said, "John Mayer performed at a corporate event in 2008 and was paid for his services. The opportunity was brought to John through his talent agency, CAA." No ruling has yet been made.
