Young Jeezy Sued for Missing Concert Date
Young Jeezy is being sued by the coordinators of Summer Splash 2011, a concert event in the Virgin Islands, for not showing up to perform.
According to tmz.com, Paid 4 Entertainment filed a lawsuit against the Atlanta rapper this past Friday (June 24). In the suit they say that they reached out to Jeezy in March to come to the show and agreed to a contract for him to appear on the scheduled date of June 18. Allegedly, YJ’s representatives told the concert organizers 12 days before the show that he “might” not be able to make it due to another engagement and “was considering not appearing."
P4E was willing to compromise with the artist by coming to a new agreement to perform on the next day, as well as pay for a private jet for him so that he could arrive without any problems. Jeezy went on to miss the plane and his people told the company that he would no longer be coming.
Paid 4 Entertainment is looking for over $75,000 in damages as well as fraud.
