Gucci Mane is one of the most well-known and controversial rappers in the world of hip-hop. The rapper appears to be in legal trouble at the moment. A promoter recently sued Gucci for failing to honour a performance contract and not returning the initial deposit for a cancelled show.
A Houston concert promoter is suing rapper Gucci Mane for breach of contract and failure to return the initial deposit for a canceled show. According to FOX 4, Brandon Mitchell booked Gucci Mane to perform on July 26th, 2019, at Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence prior to the global pandemic.
Gucci Mane’s team was given a $100,000 security deposit in order to secure the popular performer for the date. The Atlanta native, whose real name is Radric Delantic Davis, abruptly canceled his commitment and never rescheduled.
Despite failing to fulfil his contractual obligation, the rapper never returned Mitchell’s security deposit, even after the promoter requested it. As a result, Mitchell filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri on March 10th.
The lawsuit names Gucci Mane and his agents, The Diop Agency and 1st Avenue Touring LLC, as defendants. They are being sued for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation, promissory fraud, civil conspiracy, and wrongful conversion, among other things. Mitchell believes the artist purposefully lied in order to be paid despite knowing he would be unable to perform all along.
“Plaintiff has lost income, incurred financial and reputational damages, lost additional costs, lost opportunities, attorney fees, and other damages.”
