Cole Hamels sues after Victoria’s Secret snub

Published On February 24, 2016 | By Alice Cook


Texas Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels thought he was getting a VIP pass to the Victoria’s Secret fashion show and ended up with nothing.  Deadspin reports that Hamels is suing the entertainment agency that was to issue tickets to the show along with special access.

In 2015 in the show took place in London instead of it’s usual venue in New York City. Hamel’s lawsuit said he paid 49,382 pounds for three tickets or $68,730.36 U.S.

Talk about having money to burn.

Cornucopia Events promised to hand-deliver the tickets, then told Hamel he could pick the tickets up at the show. According to the lawsuit, the event company told Hamels not to bring any documents that verified the purchase with him that night.  The company also told Hamels not to tell security he bought the tickets and to say instead “they were a gift.”

The lawsuit also states that Hamels, his wife Heidi and another guest went to the fashion show on November 10, 2015, only to get denied access for the event.  There were no tickets waiting for them, although they were allowed to go to the “after party.”

Hamel’s is looking for 50K in damages but no more than 75K from Cornucopia.

She’s Game Sports asks why a guy would invite his wife to a show featuring beautiful half naked women strutting perfect bodies up and down the runway?
