Drake Sued for Canceling Gigs and Not Returning the Fee


Drake


The rapper is sued for backing out of two Chicago shows when he already took the advance money.

Drake and his company OVO are being sued for breach of contract and unjust enrichment fraud. Concert promoter Status Entertainment wanted the rapper to pay $202,800 plus interest and court fees in return for two canceled gigs in Chicago.

The promoters accused Drake of pulling diva move when he upped his fee during his "meteoric rise to the top of the music charts, achieving worldwide fame and fortune" after initially agreeing to perform for $250,000 fee. Status had transferred the rapper $100,000 in advance but he pulled out of the March 2012 show without returning the money.

Drake performed for another promoter at a nearby venue three months later. He "profited handsomely as a result and to the detriment" of Status, the lawsuit said. The concert grossed between $340,000 to over $1 million based on ticket pricing.

Status once again tried to work with Drake for an October 2012 arena concert but the same thing happened. The promoter said in the documents that they transferred $100,000 to Drake but the rapper was non-responsive. Instead, they were informed that the price had changed "because our value went up." Status chose to pull out of the plan and Drake promised to return the money, but he never did.
