Travis Scott has fired back with a lawsuit against an event company which claimed he bailed on a Super Bowl weekend concert in Minnesota, shortly after the birth of his newborn daughter Stormi.
According to Complex, the company, PJAM, first sued the rapper in February for failing to appear at a club event just hours before the Superbowl. They claimed the rapper kept the $150, 000 upfront pay, plus another $10, 000 for his booking agent, and the cost of his private jet.
For weeks, the rapper ignore, but now has filed a countersuit against, noting that he was never sent a confirmed travel itinerary for the show. Travis added that he was paid $150,000 in advance, but the organisers didn’t have enough money to cover the extra $50,000 they owed him for the gig.
Also, Travis’ team also says PJAM leaked information about the show beforehand, which would be a violation of the confidentiality agreement that they signed.
Speaking with the press, the rapper’s lawyer, Howard King, described PJAM’s lawsuit as “an obvious effort to shake Travis down and avoid the consequences of their breaches. Instead of pursuing a misguided attempt to spin the narrative and salvage their tattered reputation, the responsible step would have been for PJAM to pay Travis the balance of his fee and move on to their next opportunity.”
We can’t wait to see how this all pans out.
