Chris Tucker and Netflix are being sued over the actor’s standup comedy special three days before its release, Tucker’s attorney Marty Singer confirms.

Comedian Terry Hodges claims that he hasn’t been paid $66,000 in fees accrued from years of editing, writing, acting and producing work for the program.

“This lawsuit is absurd and completely without merit,” Singer said in a statement. “We fully expect this case to be thrown out by the court.”

Netflix had no comment at this time.

According to TMZ, Hodges claims he started working on the special in 2008 and hasn’t been regularly paid since 2011.

Filmed in his hometown of Atlanta, Tucker’s first-ever standup special, “Chris Tucker Live,” will begin streaming Friday on Netflix.

Here’s the trailer for the special.
