After allegedly getting booted from Brick Squad last night via Twitter (not really, though), Waka Flocka Flame is back in the news courtesy of his mother. Debra Antney is suing Bad Boy rapper French Montana for making big money concert deals without her knowledge when she was his manager.
According to the lawsuit, Antney — who runs Atlanta-based management company Mizay Entertainment — entered into an exclusive management contract with French in November 2010.
Antney announced the new partnership with several press releases, and French himself acknowledged the relationship … praising Antney’s management skills, telling XXL, “As far as management, she got it down pat.”
But in the lawsuit, Antney says things quickly went sour … claiming French subsequently secured several concert appearances without her knowledge or consent, cutting her out of a 20% management fee.
Antney — who used to rep Nicki Minaj — is now suing for unspecified damages, totaling at least $50,000.
French was served with the lawsuit while entering an Atlanta concert venue on Tuesday. Calls to French’s camp were not returned.
Sounds like French didn’t want too many hands in his pockets considering he is signed to Bad Boy and also reportedly has Rick Ross executive producing his forthcoming debut album, Excuse My French. Late last year, Gucci Mane aimed shots at Nicki Minaj and French Montana for their alleged disloyalty in leaving Antney’s management company and “not keeping it real.”
French Montana’s Excuse My French is finally in stores May 21.
