Bone Thugs Ordered To Pay Up Over Missed Japanese Shows

BONE THUGS-N-HARMONY have been forced to pay out more than $200,000 (GBP100,000) to a Japanese promotion company after allegedly missing a string of tour dates in the country. World Mix Entertainment recently filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Federal Court claiming the rap trio had defaulted on an agreement to play shows in Nagoya and Okinawa in December 2006, forcing the company to cancel the gigs and refund the ticket sales to disappointed fans. The firm demanded compensation for the Crossroads stars' contract, which asked for $25,000 (GBP12,500) per show and $10,000 (GBP5,000) per photoshoot in addition to all hotel and travelling costs, and their tour rider, which included one "big sack of marijuana", among other items. World Mix Entertainment was awarded the default judgement and compensation of $205,510 (GBP102,755) on Friday (29Feb08) after members Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone and Wish Bone failed to contest the suit or hire a lawyer to defend themselves against the claims.
