Last month, R&B sensation T-Pain cancelled a show in Guyana due to death threats prior to his arrival in the South American country. Now, promoters of that failed February 23rd performance are suing the Tallahassee crooner.
According to The Miami Herald, Hits And Jams Entertainment have filed a lawsuit against T-Pain over the incentives from the scheduled event. Based out of Georgetown, Hits And Jams allege that the contract, along with a $75,000 advanced payment, included more than 10 airline tickets, booking a four-star hotel, and 24-hour room service.
While it was stated by T-Pain’s Chase Entertainment team that they would happily return the $75,000 advanced check, Hits And Jams believe the cancelled event, regardless of money given back, could not “remedy the disappointment to the Guyanese fans.”
David Abram, on behalf of Chase Entertainment, explained their position on the lawsuit stating, “We feel horrible about not being able to play the concert.” Continuing, he added, “We are going to do what needs to be done to make this right with the promoters. They’re a good company; we’re a good company.” However, as their defense before the lawsuit, Abram made it clear that the cancellation was in the best interests of both parties. ‘‘It was a legitimate security threat,” he said.
