Former “Big Brother” champion Mike “Boogie” Malin claims he’s getting the shaft in Vegas — because one of the biggest casinos in town just MUSCLED his restaurant right out of business.
Boogie is one of the owners of the famous Dolce restaurant group — which opened a pretty awesome steak place in the Hard Rock Hotel back in 2008 called Rare 120°.
According to a new lawsuit filed by Dolce in Nevada, Rare was a smash hit for years … until new ownership took over the Hard Rock and tried to push it off the property.
The Dolce Group claims the Hard Rock was so ruthless, management sent a team to empty out all of the food in the kitchen on July 10 while the place was still in business …. “leaving only a few remaining items on the menu to offer guests.”
Rare officially closed its doors the next day.
Now, Boogie — who’s now starring on the VH1 show “Famous Food” — wants the Hard Rock to pay Dolce back for all the money they lost.
Calls to the Hard Rock have not been returned.
