Bruce Springsteen, wife being sued over horse

Monday, October 08, 2007

Bruce Springsteen and his wife are being sued over a horse.

Olympic equestrian Todd Minikus has filed a breach-of-contract suit against Springsteen and Patti Scialfa for backing out of a deal to buy a horse for their daughter, Jessica. His suit says the couple reneged on a deal to pay him $650,000 for a horse named Pavarotti and give him their horse, Scarlett, who's worth $200,000.

The suit says the couple put down a $25,000 deposit in July but had a change of heart after Minikus rode the horse at the Pan American Games in Brazil. He says the deal was supposed to be completed by August 24th.

He's seeking damages and compensation for the upkeep of Pavarotti. He claims the horse has lost value because Springsteen backed out of the deal. Springsteen's publicist says she has no information about the lawsuit.
