Drake may be one of the most famous rappers in the world, but even he isn’t immune to facing the consequences when he plays hooky from work.
According to Gossip Cop, promoters for two of his Chicago concerts are suing Drake for skipping out on the shows — and allegedly keeping the money they’d already paid him for his appearances.
Status Entertainment claims that the “Hold On, We’re Going Home” singer had agreed to play a show in March 2012 for $250,000, and they sent him $100,000 of it just before he pulled out of the show after his request for more money wasn’t met.
And then it happened again when he and Status came to an agreement that he’d play an arena show in October 2012, received his next $100,000, and cancelled on them again, his camp stating that they “changed the price because our value went up.” Ouch!
Drake has yet to return the $200,000 he received for the shows he didn’t play, and now Status is suing him for breach of contract and unjust enrichment fraud — and they’re looking for $202,800 plus interest, which is pretty reasonable considering they just want their money back .
This is Drake’s second lawsuit in 2013: in August, he was sued by his former stylist for skipping out on his bill.
