Bon Jovi sued over American football team

Team sales manager alleges he's owed commission

Jon Bon Jovi has been sued by the former sales manager for the American indoor football team he co-owns.

Philadelphia Soul employee Joseph Krause is suing the Bon Jovi frontman and his business partners in the arena football team for the nearly $125,000 he alleges is owed to him in severance pay and commission.

Krause claims he is owed more than $41,000 for the 2009 arena football season that was cancelled due to financial difficulties, as well as several thousand dollars in previous sales commissions, reports the Associated Press.


Bon Jovi declined to comment on the lawsuit.
