Cleveland, OH rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were hit with a $280,000 lawsuit after failing to show up for a performance last year.
According to a court documents recently filed in Washington and obtained by TMZ, the “Crossroads” rappers had an agreement with minor league basketball team, the Jazz of Tacoma, to play at an event, but reneged on the deal.
The suit, which was filed by the team against both Bone Thugs and the promoter, Adler Booking Agency, claims that all parties signed a written contract and that while the Jazz fulfilled their end of the deal by paying in advance, the group never returned the money, nor called to cancel the appearance.
In addition to $280,000 in compensatory damages the plaintiff is also asking for the defendants to pay for their attorney fees. -Jesse Gissen
