Rick Ross Facing $226K Lawsuit Over 15-Minute Performance
15 minutes could cost Rick Ross $226,000. According to All HipHop, the Miami rapper is being sued by a jilted promoter accusing the Maybach Music boss of performing for way less time than he was paid for.
SM Global Union filed the suit claiming that Ross, Waka Flocka, and MMG family member, Meek Mill, were billed to perform in North Carolina during the CIAA tournament weekend. Once he showed up, Ross only performed for 15-minutes, instead of the agreed upon 60-minute set.
The suit asserts that Ross pocketed $90,000 for what was supposed to be an hour long show, and randomly walked off stage less than halfway through his scheduled time. Meanwhile, Meek and Waka are being sued for breach of contract by failing to promote the event through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Ross is being sought after for breach of contract as well as damages incurred by the company for loss of profits.
At this point Ross is amassing a small but notable reputation for skipping out on contractually obligated appearances. Last year, he was in fear of being sued for not showing up at the Calabar Festival in Nigeria, but has since made a trek to the West African country.
