Rick Ross Accused Of Dodging Process Servers Over London Concert Flop

Rapper Rick Ross has been accused of dodging process servers' attempts to slap him with court papers for the past six months after he allegedly bailed on plans to perform in London in 2012.

The heavyweight hip-hop star was named in papers alongside his collaborators Meek Mill, Wale and Omarion amid accusations they pulled out of a gig at the city's Wembley Arena after promoters at Executive Decision gave them a large advance of their performance fees and covered other costs, amounting to $93,281.26 (£58,300).

Company boss Christian Ezechie filed his complaint in New York federal court in October (13), but now claims that "despite numerous and diligent attempts" he has been "unable to locate the defendants".

Ezechie reveals a registered address for Rick Ross Touring in his hometown of Miami, Florida turned out to be bogus, while a process server who attempted to reach the Hustlin' hitmaker at his Miami pad was told by one of the star's associates that he had no idea how to contact the rapper.

Servers have also tried to reach Ross at his concerts, but according to Ezechie, they are "hesitant to serve him while he is surrounded by security guards".

However, the plaintiff may not have to track Ross down in person - a judge ruled last week (ends18May14) that if he is unable to formally serve the defendants with papers before a hearing on 4 June (14), Ezechie can seek permission to notify the stars of the legal action via an alternative route, such as posting a message in a newspaper, according to the New York Post.
