Travis Scott Gets Sued for Fraud Following Festival Cancellation

Organizers for the Rhythm, Wine and Brews Experience claims in their lawsuit that the 'ZEZE' rapper has pocketed a $200K-plus deposit before pulling out of the gig without any explanation.

AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) is facing a lawsuit from the organisers of a California festival that was cancelled after he allegedly pulled out.

Lawyers for Empire Music Ventures, who organise the Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience at the Empire Polo Club grounds, the same venue as the famed Coachella music festival, filed a lawsuit accusing Travis of fraud and breach of contract on Friday, January 04.

In documents obtained by The Blast website, they allege Travis, 26, signed a $400,000 (£314,000) contract to perform at the event in March (19) and had been paid $217,500 (£170,000) upfront.

They claim that shortly after they paid him the deposit on 3 December, the "ZEZE" hitmaker's team pulled out of the 75-minute gig with no explanation, forcing them to cancel the festival.

On the same day they state they paid Scott, organisers announced on Facebook that the event would not be going ahead due to an unnamed headliner letting them down.

"Due to a last minute cancellation by our festival headliner, we have no other choice than to cancel the 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience," their post read.

In their suit, the festival organisers accuse Travis and his team of stealing their money and refusing to return it.
