Even though T.I. had absolutely nothing to do with Troy Ave shooting up his recent New York City show at Irving Plaza, it may still cost him.

TMZ is reporting that a party promoter in Florida is seeking to terminate a contract and get a refund for a show they they booked T.I. for.

Per TMZ:

A huge high school graduation party thinks he’s damaged goods after the violent incident … and organizers are demanding a $55k refund.

Tip was set to perform a concert in South Florida for grads from multiple high schools on June 11. The contract was signed and promoters had sent him $55,000 to retain his services — but then the shootout happened.

TMZ has learned promoters fired off a legal notice saying, due to the shooting, “the quality of the Talents services is not satisfactory to our Client.” They added … the event was marketed “as a safe environment for the students.”

In other words, promoters are worried that a cloud of gangsta sh*t is following T.I. wherever he goes.

HipHopWired has learned that the gig in jeopardy is the Planet Graduation party that is booked for June 11 in Davie, Florida. Rich Homie Quan is also on the bill. According to their website the party is:

…a great alternative to the myriad of negative options for High School Graduations. Our “Alternative” graduation celebration model will allow graduates to choose a better atmosphere and also bring comfort to parents and school officials. It will be an “over the top” entertainment adventure that will keep them secure, supervised and onsite from 10 PM to 6 AM. That’s right! Professional security and appointed chaperons will keep them in a safe, friendly and entertaining environment.

Planet Graduation has not confirmed TMZ’s report to HHW and T.I. has yet to respond. Last night however, T.I. did offer this Instagram post as a response to the shooting and to offer condolences to those effected.

Troy Ave is the prime suspect in a concert shooting that happened Wednesday night in New York City’s Irving Plaza. Troy allegedly shot himself in the leg as well as two other people and reportedly killed his bodyguard in the process. He was arrested on Thursday and charged with attempted murder.
