has landed in hot water. The "Extra" host is sued by Robert "Bobby" Capone for allegedly canceling his gig as a host at an event organized by Capone at the Roxy/and or Penn's Landing Caterers in Philadelphia on October 27 last year.

According to the lawsuit obtained by E! News, Lopez was to receive $15,000 for the job and already got $8,000 in advance. The former child actor then informed the organizer that he would not be attending because of "new commitments" that have "just arose."

Capone sues Lopez for consumer fraud, bad faith dealing, breach of contract and fraud in the inducement. The plaintiff claims he suffered losses estimated at $5,000 due to the last-minute cancellation and demands $50,000 as compensation.
