A Chicago woman's lawsuit against an ex-fiance she accuses of cheating with a woman he met at his Las Vegas bachelor party is seeking $62,814 for wedding costs.
Attorney Lauren Serafin's Cook County Circuit Court lawsuit against former fiance and fellow attorney Robert Leighton, which was filed Friday, claims the couple had been together for two years when she saw text messages on Leighton's phone indicating he met with a woman named Danielle on the night of his July 17, 2010, bachelor party in Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Sun reported Tuesday.
The suit says Serafin confronted Leighton about the messages July 28, 2010, and he initially denied anything improper happened with Danielle but he later admitted they had "made out" and called off the Aug. 21, 2010, wedding.
Leighton allegedly later admitted he had "hooked up" with Danielle, who the lawsuit states apologized to Serafin and said she did not know Leighton was involved with someone else.
The suit, which alleges breach of the promise to marry and intentional infliction of emotional distress, is seeking reimbursement totaling $62,814 for expenses including the wedding dress, bridesmaid's dresses, wedding invitations, a band reservation and non-refundable plane tickets and hotel reservations for a honeymoon in Bora Bora.
