Wayne Newton Sued Over Las Vegas Home Museum Plans

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A company that bought the rights to convert Wayne Newton’s Las Vegas home into a museum is suing the entertainer over allegations that he unreasonably delayed the project to ensure it never opens.

The lawsuit filed by CSD, LLC seeks to have the Newton family immediately vacate their home to allow the $50 million project honoring the Las Vegas legend’s music career to move forward.

Under the terms of the deal, Newton, his wife and his daughter agreed to move to a newly constructed $2 million home on the estate so their mansion could be converted into a museum initially scheduled to open in January.

The lawsuit claims the family has refused to relocate or turn over their personal memorabilia. It also claims Newton sexually harassed a young female employee.

    No one, to my knowledge, has ever sued Wayne Newton over the frequent foul odor drifting from his estate across Sunset.
