Kodak Black may be in jail but that isn’t preventing anyone from slamming him with a lawsuit.
Recall that the rapper’s house was raiders by officers in January who suspected him of engaging in illegal activities following an Instagram live session. When they broke into the rapper’s home, they reportedly found 95 grams of weed, a loaded Glock, and a stolen Beretta handgun. The rapper was put in cuffs and taken to jail, and he was denied bail and will remain there until February 23, when he would be arraigned on seven charges, including drug possession, child neglect, grand theft of a firearm, and parole violation.
While his fans waits to see what the outcome of the trial will be, a concert promoter identified as Corey Minniefield filed a lawsuit against him, saying that Kodak was paid $45, 000 in cheque for a concert and he never showed up to earn the pay.
Reportedly, Kodak signed an agreement to perform at Corey’s concert on February 28, 207, but same day, he was arrested for violating his probation. Corey rescheduled and Kodak never showed up.
A second promoter, Nicholas Fitts, filed another lawsuit, claiming that he spent about $123, 000 in booking fees for the rapper for a March 3 concert, but Kodak never showed. He was in jail at that time. Nicholas rescheduled for April 15 and 29 concerts, but Kodak was back in jail, for violating his probation again.
The rapper never got around to performing at the concerts, and now he has been tossed into jail for new crimes. And this is why the promoters are suing to get their money back.
This and more are the troubles facing the rapper who, according to TMZ, is also “facing a number of charges stemming from a 2016 incident in which he allegedly raped a teenage girl inside a hotel room in South Carolina. Kodak was indicted on first-degree sexual assault charges in 2017.”
The rapper could be spending up to 30 years in prison, if convicted.
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
