Miami rapper Rick Ross has a legal entanglement on his hands. Two promoters in St. Louis are suing the Grammy-nominated artist over a concert booking they claim The Boss blew off last year.
Lawsuit Claims Rick Ross No-Showed St. Louis Concert
Before the COVID pandemic, Rick Ross was booked to perform at The Pageant in St. Louis on Jan. 11, 2020. Promoters Antoine Meeks of Black Luxury Entertainment, and Orlando Watson of Rockhouse Entertainment, are suing Ross for not showing up after they paid him half of his $60,000 appearance fee and covered other expenses.
Ross failed to appear, the suit says, adding that the plaintiffs also spent $6,000 for the venue, $3,300 on Ross’ travel and accommodations, $4,100 on marketing and promotions and $25,000 for “production costs.” It says the plaintiffs have been damaged more than $74,000. (KSDK 5 – St. Louis)
