A New York publisher has sued MC Hammer for return of a $61,000 advance on a book on fatherhood it says he never delivered.
    

Simon & Schuster Inc. spokesman Adam Rothberg said Friday the book was due in 2003, and "we never received the manuscript.'' The one-page lawsuit was filed March 5. It seeks $61,000, plus interest.     
The publisher says the rapper signed a contract in 2002 under his real name, Stanley Kirk Burrell, and received the advance for a book entitled ``Enemies of the Father: Messages from the Heart on Being a Family Man.''
    
A voice mailbox at the 46-year-old rapper's Tracy, Calif., number was full Friday. Hammer's agent, Alisha Everett, did not immediately return a call.
    
Hammer's hits include "U Can't Touch This'' and "Too Legit to Quit.''
