Chance The Rapper is counter-suing his former manager for $3 million, and this is quite a messy situation.
The famous rapper was sued two months ago by his former manager, and now according to the Chicago Tribune, Chance The Rapper is firing back in a big way. He has filed a new suit in Cook County court that accuses his manager of wrongdoing, and he wants to get paid.
Chance The Rapper is suing his former manger Pat Corcoran for millions as unreimbursed expenses that were incurred while promoting Chance’s third mixtape Coloring Book.
He also seeks a dismissal of his former manager’s lawsuit while he’s at it. The manager’s lawsuit is about breaching a contract where he requested $3 million from Chance. He wants a $1 mill for each complaint of fiduciary duty, interference that led to the loss of business opportunities, and breach of contract. Chance isn’t having it as he told the Chicago Tribune.
“Mr. Corcoran has been paid in full under his management services contract with Mr. Bennett. Yet he chose to file a groundless and insulting lawsuit that ignores his own improper self-dealing and incompetence. Mr. Bennett has moved to dismiss the majority of that meritless lawsuit, and filed his own lawsuit to remedy the harm that Mr. Corcoran caused through his breaches of duty. Mr. Bennett trusts the legal system to reveal the truth of the parties’ relationship in due course.”
The two made an oral agreement about things, but Chance says that “convert Mr. Bennett’s opportunities for himself and to advance his own separate business interests.” Those “business interests” included a wine company and being involved in a movie Chance was set to write and produce.
