Rapper Chief Keef Has Been Hit With A $175,000 (£109,000) Lawsuit For Failing To Perform At A Concert In Alabama Last Year (14).
The hip-hop star, real name Keith Cozart, was scheduled to appear at an Auburn University's Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house bash in April, 2014, but, according to a new lawsuit, filed on Monday (31Aug15) in Cook County Circuit Court, he was a no show.
Bosses at The Booking Collective, LLC claim Cozart was paid $12,000 (£7,500) in advance and was to be paid the remaining $10,000 (£6,250) after the gig. The executives also allege they dished out $5,000 (£3,100) to prepare for his stay in the city.
Following the 20 year old's alleged failure to appear, bosses at The Booking Collective, LLC were sued by members of Sigma Phi Epsilon for $70,000 (£44,000).
The company is suing Chief Keef for breach of contract and violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
