Chief Keef's Missed London Gig Will Cost Him $230,000
Chief Keef is ordered to pay more than $230,000 after his absence from a London concert in December.
Chicago rapper Chief Keef seems to be spending and losing money just as fast as he makes it. Recently, Keef was hit with a lawsuit from a Washington, D.C.-based concert promotion company called Team Major over a missed show back in December.
Team Major says that Chief Keef's absence cost them over $75,000, including the advace they paid him. Keef never responded to Team Major's lawsuit and after four months of silence, a judge ruled in favor of the promotional company, awarding them $230,019 for damages, loss of earnings and reputational harm, according to TMZ and documents.
"Around that time, we was dealing with some legal issues, and it wasn't, according to his lawyer, the best idea for him to be leaving the country," a spokesman for Keef's management team said, according to Complex. "We'll see to it that it gets resolved properly."
Keef never gave advance notice for his no-show, forcing the company to issue refunds.
This incident adds to the laundry list of Keef's recent legal, no-show and financial problems. He was reportedly a no-show for an appearance on 106 & Park and also didn't show up to his own video shoot for the song "Hate Being Sober," leaving 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa out in the desert alone.
