When Miami singer Enrique Iglesias decided he needed a life coach last year, his friends referred him to self-professed guru to the stars Doc Delano.
And, according to a lawsuit recently filed in a Miami-Dade County circuit court against the singer of “Hero” and “I Like It,” Iglesias hired the Miami Beach counselor, whose real name is Richard Easton.
Easton’s fees, according to the court papers, came to $550,000 for a year.
Thing is, Easton claims, Enrique’s money never found its way into his bank account despite several weeks of relationship counseling, and now Easton is suing for breach of contract.
Never miss a local story.
Iglesias, 41, has a gig in France this week and has yet to respond to the allegations. He didn’t respond to an email for comment.
According to the paperwork, former Wall Street trader Easton says he was first contacted by Iglesias in May 2015.
The singer was going through emotional problems pertaining to his desire to start a family with galpal Anna Kournikova while “under the celebrity spotlight,” according to the paperwork.
Iglesias and Easton started negotiating a fee for six months of work, but Easton says Iglesias then started asking about a one-year deal.
They allegedly settled on a $550,000 fee for year.
Easton claims in his complaint Iglesias wanted him available “day and night.”
Easton says he started providing his services to Iglesias immediately.
But May turned into June, and Easton didn’t receive any money.
Still hasn’t, according to the lawsuit.
When reached on his cell phone, Easton declined comment.
While his Facebook bio says he works for “celebrities, entrepreneurs … and people wishing to reinvent their lives,” there’s no name mentioned.
“He protects the secrets of very high-profile people,” his bio reads. “Confidentiality is his highest priority.”
