Cee Lo Green Sued For Skipping Out On Christmas Concerts
Cee Loo Green is being sued for a company that claims the singer took money for a series of Christmas concerts that he never performed.
Cierra Management Group is suing Cee Lo Green saying that the singer made a proposal to them in November 2011 for a tour called “12 Days of Christmas,” TMZ reports. Cee Lo reportedly wanted $100,000 per concert, but Cierra Management Group couldn’t afford to pay that much.
Cee Lo then made a new proposal — six concerts for $100,000 each. After Cierra Management Group again balked at the high price, Cee Lo offered to play two concerts for a total of $243,000 plus expenses, and Cierra Management Group agreed.
But the concerts never happened, and Cee Lo Green was sued by Cierra Group, which claims his proposal were all
“a scheme designed to finagle funding capital for concerts they knew would not manifest.” The suit doesn’t actually name Cee Lo as being part of the conspiracy, but he is being accused of refusing to perform the concerts, TMZ noted.
Cee Lo Green has faced other legal troubles in the past few months. In the fall he was accused of giving a woman ecstasy and then sexually assaulting her. The woman said she met Green at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant and had a drink with him, but remembered nothing after that until she woke up naked beside the singer, TMZ reported.
The woman went to her local law enforcement agency, but was referred to the LAPD. Sources told TMZ that detectives had the woman call Cee Lo and admit to the assault, but his team denies that.
Cee Lo Green is being sued by Cierra Management Group for $14.2 million.
