Tekashi 6ix9ine was Friday’s guest (November 16) on The Breakfast Club where he explained in detail why he fired his former booking agency. During the conversation, 6ix9ine accused MTA Booking of stealing a colossal amount of money from him.
But according to TMZ, a rep for MTA Booking said the polarizing rapper’s accusations are unwarranted. The rep also denied there was ever a $3.6 million concert deal as 6ix9ine explained on the show — it’s was simply a possibility. The agency said its team worked tirelessly to ensure 6ix9ine’s safety.
MTA says the agency booked nine upcoming U.S. shows and two in Mexico for 6ix9ine. He was sent a $700,000 deposit for those. There were also five shows booked in Germany for which he was already paid $160,000 in deposits.
MTA is considering legal action against 6ix9ine for dragging the company’s name through the dirt during his Breakfast Club appearance.
6ix9ine’s attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ, “We have asked [MTA] to show us any contracts with Tekashi69’s signature showing they were acting as an agent to book performances on his behalf and they haven’t provided us with any to date … Their cooperation has been very limited. I would take anything MTA says with a grain of salt.”
MTA has been ordered to cease and desist from booking any more shows for 6ix9ine.
