Timbaland Suing Australian Promoter Over Breach of Contract


Timbaland


Timbaland enters the court battle with an Australian tour company by filing a legal document, accusing them for ruining his tour and causing the local press to tarnish his image.

Timbaland charges an Australian tour company, Showtime Touring Group, for allegedly ruining his scheduled tour in the country. As written in the 18-page lawsuit, Timbaland tries to defend himself over the canceled shows by pledging that he wanted to "set the record straight" for his Australian fans about the "last minute before the cancellation."

The suit reveals that Showtime agreed to pay Timbaland AUS$1.26 millions for the tour and provide him and his staff with "first-class vehicles" and "first-class, five-star hotel accommodation." In return for that, the rapper would perform for a minimum of 40 minutes and a maximum of an hour at each show. However, according to the suit, "from the moment the parties signed the contract at issue, Showtime breached its obligations" and failed to make the required payment.

The rapper was originally scheduled for July's shows in five different venues; Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, and Auckland. Yet, they were all postponed to August before permanently canceled. As written in the legal document, his lawyer says, "Timbaland initially offered to postpone the tour dates to permit Showtime to get its act together so that he could entertain his fans. Showtime, however, was still unable to comply with its basic contractual obligations ..."

The powerhouse music producer, who has teamed up with big singers, including Madonna and Justin Timberlake, also accuses the Australian company of releasing misleading information about the show and resulting on his tarnished image. In a statement reported by the Australian press, the company announced that the tour was called off due to "a lack of contact from Timbaland and his management." Unfortunately, Showtime's publicist could not be reached for comment.
