Jeezy Sued for $30,000 by Houston Concert Promoter
Jeezy has been slapped with a lawsuit by a Houston concert promoter who claims that the Atlanta rapper pocketed $30,000 for a performance and never showed up.
According to Houston Chronicle, concert promoter Darryl Austin filed a civil suit against Jeezy on Feb. 9. In his suit, he alleges that he agreed to pay the 39-year-old rapper $60,000 to perform a one-hour concert at Houston’s Arena on Dec. 9. He sent Jeezy the upfront money of $30,000, of which $20,000 was deposited in the rapper’s checking account.
However, Jeezy was a no-show for the scheduled concert in December, and instead attended an album release party in Atlanta.
Austin, who is a promoter for Sammy Mumphery and YJ Productions and Concerts, stated in his lawsuit that he tried to reschedule the concert, but Jeezy wasn’t being flexible with his time. In the end, the promoter claims that Jeezy ran off with the advance money.
Darryl Austin is seeking $100,000 in damages. Reps for Jeezy had no comment on the matter.
