Atlanta rapper Young Thug and his booking agency have been sued by a Texas production company after it says he failed to perform a concert he was partially paid for.
The lawsuit, filed in Fulton County state court, says Young Thug (real name: Jeffery Williams) was hired to perform a concert in April 2016 for the agreed-upon fee of $50,000. The production company, Pentone Productions, says weather delayed, then ultimately canceled the artist's flight, but they've been unable to get his team to commit to a rain date.
"To date, none of the Defendants have attempted to reschedule the performance or provide a refund to Plaintiff," court documents state. "Defendants have also failed to respond to Plaintiff’s efforts to either get the Performance rescheduled or get a refund."
The lawsuit seeks a return of the partial payment, $27,500, remitted in advance of the planned concert, in addition to legal fees.
