A Rick Ross lawsuit claims the famous rapper took a $200,000 advance payment but never bothered showing up to perform… yet kept the cash. Now the promoters are trying to suck back $200,000 but Ross is claimed to be “running” from the lawyers.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, former Death Row CEO Suge Knight allegedly threatened Rick Ross for not coughing up the bread. Of course, that does not hurt as much as the LMFAO lawsuit that claimed Ross was a “fake thug” who has not even gone platinum with any of his albums yet.
Christian Ezechie is the promoter who hooked up Rick Ross with a performance at London’s Wembley Arena in 2012. But none of the artists involved, including Meek Mill, Wale, and Omarion, actually performed despite receiving a very large advance payment. “It’s blatant roberry he’s doing, and he’s an artist worth $50 million,” Ezechie says.
Ezechie filed the Rick Ross lawsuit in a New York federal court in October but the odd part about the whole story is that he has been unable to get in contact with any of the defendants:
“Despite numerous and diligent attempts…we have been unable to locate the defendants.”
Ross’ address turned out to be a UPS store and process servers couldn’t even find the rapper at his own home in Miami. The process servers have considered contacting Ross during a live stage performance but are “hesitant to serve him while he is surrounded by security guards,” which is probably wise. The court is now allowing the prosecution to proceed in contacting Ross by “posting a notice in a newspaper,” assuming the rapper does not notice all these article on the internet before we reach a hearing scheduled for June of 2014. They are also trying to recoup the $100k each that was given out to all the other defendants.
