A Miami club is suiing North Philly-born comedian Kevin Hart, who recently hosted the Welcome America 4th of July Jam, after he bailed on a scheduled appearance. Instead of hosting a night at Miami's Cameo Nightclub, Hart bailed to host a Miami Heat championship party with buddy Dwyane Wade and BET personality Terrence J at another venue on June 22.

The interesting part is that Cameo says they spent $4,680, and are suing for $15,000 to cover a hit to their reptutation. That's a paltry sum for a celeb appearance. The already-famous can rake in big bucks just for showing their face at a club, like the Philly promoter who sued Mario Lopez in excess of $50,000 for not showing up.

TMZ says Hart's rep denies the kerfuffle and says everything is good with the club after Hart rescheduled his appearance. Maybe Hart, who last film "Let Me Explain" has grossed $30 million at the box office, decided the 15 thou was chump change paid the club in cash?
