Wayne Newton, left, and his wife Kathleen McCrone Newton speak to members of the media after a court hearing for a counterclaim on a lawsuit filed against them, Thursday, May 31, 2012, in Las Vegas. The entertainer's lawyers are denying allegations of mismanagement, animal abuse and sexual harassment lodged in a lawsuit by a business associate, and responding with counterclaims alleging breach of contract and fraud. Documents filed Wednesday in Nevada state court label as ?scurrilous and scandalous? allegations in a lawsuit filed two weeks ago by the company that purchased rights to convert Newton's home into a tourist attraction.
