Gucci Mane Sued By Arkansas Concert Promoter
Typically, rappers get caught on the other end of a concert-related lawsuit because they didn’t show up to their performance. But in the case of Gucci Mane‘s latest legal troubles, he was apparently stretching himself too thin.
According to TMZ, Little Rock, Ark.’s Empire Entertainment is suing the ‘Trap God’ for breach of contract and fraud after he allegedly cut his set short so he could go to another performance that same night (Nov. 22) in Tennessee.
They claim that they reached out to Gucci, who is said to have advertised the Tennessee gig on his Twitter account, to ensure there wasn’t a double-booking mistake. Empire says that the rapper’s team assured them that there was no Tennessee show planned.
Empire claims that the Little Rock show ended up being a failure, though, because Gucci only performed three songs before leaving to perform at the Tennessee gig. They say that they spent $22,500 on promoting the show, booking Gucci a hotel room (which they say he used), and various other fees—and they’re looking to get their money back.
