Chief Keef has just learned that simply ignoring lawsuits won’t make them go away. The Chicago rapper has been ordered to pay $230,000 to a concert promoter he stiffed back in March.
The 17-year-old rapper was sued by a concert promotion company called Team Major back in March … which claimed Keef screwed ’em over by bailing on a London gig — set to go down Dec. 29th 2012.
TM claimed Keef’s stunt cost them OVER $75,000, including his advance.
Now the lesson part: according to docs, Chief NEVER bothered to respond to TM’s suit. After FOUR months of radio silence a judge ruled in favor of Team Major … simply by default.
Then the judge stuck it to Keef … ordering him to cough up $230,019 for damages, loss of earnings, and reputational harm.
So, despite walking around with plenty of cash, the “I Don’t Like” rapper dropped an album that didn’t sell up to expectations (Finally Rich isn’t even close to gold), has at least of a couple of baby mama’s digging in his pockets and now is being ordered to pay concert promoters. Also, there are the recent arrests for speeding smoking kush in a hotel room.
Sosa may want to tuck some of that cash into a savings account for the rainy days to come. Just saying.
