Chris Tucker, Netflix Sued Over Standup Special

Entertainment | Camille Travis | 07/08/2015 | 12:45 PM EDT

The suit comes just days before the comedian's standup special is to be released

We're pretty sure Chris Tucker didn't expect his first standup special to end in a lawsuit, but a fellow comedian is demanding that the star pay up.

Terry Hodges
is suing Tucker and Netflix for unpaid wages he believes he's owed from working on "Chris Tucker Live," which is set to be released Friday (July 10). He claims he edited, wrote, produced and acted in the special and has been working on the material with Tucker since 2008.

He also alleges he was promised a co-producer credit, reports TMZ.

Hodges says he hasn't been paid since 2011 and is owed $66,000.

Netflix has yet to respond to the suit, but Tucker's attorney Marty Singer said in a statement: "This lawsuit is absurd and completely without merit. We fully expect this case to be thrown out by the court."
