Chris Tucker has been sued by a fellow comedian, Terry Hodges just days before his huge Netflix stand-up comedy is released.

Hodged is taking Tucker and Netflix to court under the claims that he's done a ton of work for Tucker on this special including editing, writing, acting, and producing but hasn't seen a dime in years. Hodges says he and Chris started working on the material since 2008!

In his lawsuit, Hodges says he's spent up to $66k in fees, during trips to Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Atlanta and hasn't been regularly paid since 2011. On top of that, he says Tucker promised to make him a co-producer ... which would entitle him to a little extra cash, but that also didn't happen.

In a statement on July 7, Tucker's attorney Marty Singer says, "This lawsuit is absurd and completely without merit. We fully expect this case to be thrown out by the court."
