Flo Rida - Flo Rida Ordered To Pay 400k

Flo Rida has been ordered to pay $400,000 to Australian festival organisers.

The rapper failed to fulfill his commitments to the Fat As Butter event in Newcastle, New South Wales, last October, with organisers claiming he cancelled at the last minute because he slept in, and a district court in the state has told the star he must hand over the money as compensation.

The payment is to cover Mothership Music's costs for air fares, accommodation, hospitality and legal fees, as well as damages to their reputation due to his failure to show.

Neither Flo or his representative appeared in court and it has been reported that the legal documents were served via Facebook.

However, the 'Whistle' hitmaker previously claimed there was no room booked for him at Sydney's Four Seasons hotel before Fat As Butter, nor any transport to the venue, and he insisted he did arrive to the festival but was late after securing his own transport.

He said at the time: ''I didn't run to the media to discuss a business issue with my tour because I didn't think that was the appropriate way to handle things. Now I'm forced to, because the things that are being said about me are not true.''

The festival organisers denied his claims at the time.
