A building contractor in Santa Ana, Calif., has filed a lawsuit claiming that Mick Jagger shortchanged the company $10,000 after it built a waterfall at the singer's Caribbean retreat.
In the lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court, Encon Environmental Conservation of Newport Beach demands full payment for the waterfall and stream. According to the lawsuit, Encon was hired in 1986 and finished the project on the tiny island of Mustique by May 1987. Jagger paid $27,000 in advance but allegedly balked at making an additional payment of more than $10,000. Jagger could not immediately be reached for comment.A call placed to the singer's publicist's office Friday went unanswered. The lawsuit demands that an outstanding balance of $10,065.79 be paid as well as interest on that amount and unspecified punitive damages.
