Rick Ross appears to be the newest target of a lawsuit. According to rumors, a couple of St. Louis promoters are suing the Miami rapper for missing a concert last year.
The rapper was supposed to perform at the Pageant in St. Louis on Jan. 11, 2020, but that never happened.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs, Antoine Meeks and Orlando Watson, paid Rick Ross $30,000 in advance on October 21st, 2019 and were supposed to pay the rest when he arrived, but he never did.
He also kept the first $30,000 he received as a down payment.
The plaintiffs also claim they paid $6,000 for the venue, $3,300 for Ross’ travel and lodging, $4,100 for marketing and promotions, and $25,000 for “production costs.”
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs have been harmed to the tune of $74,000, and they want Rick Ross to compensate them.
It remains to be seen whether they will be successful in recouping the funds, but it is worth the effort.
Meeks and Watson’s lawyer, Thayer Weaver, claim they tried unsuccessfully to postpone the event, saying the rapper disregarded their calls and pointing out that he couldn’t trace out where Ross’ corporate companies were organized.
