PJAM Entertainment sued the rapper — whose real name is Jacques Webster — for canceling a Minneapolis concert scheduled for Feb. 3, according to documents obtained by The Blast.
Scott reportedly signed his contract for the performance on Jan. 24 and was slated to receive $200,000. $150,000 was paid in advance and he has allegedly not paid back to PJAM. The rapper’s booking agent took home $10,000; a private jet was also acquired for his travel accommodations.
“Despite his contractual obligations, [Scott] refused to show up for the event,” PJAM claims in the paperwork. “As a result of this breach, [PJAM] suffered significant damages including the sums paid to XX Global [Scott’s agent] and [Scott] and their booking agent, the sums paid to arrange Webster’s travel, the sum’s paid to advertise the event, lease the venue and hire staff, and the lost profits [PJAM] would have realized on this event … [PJAM also paid] significant sums … to advertise the event, lease a large entertainment venue and to hire a staff of waiters, bartenders and other assistants for the night.”
PJAM is seeking their $150,000 back from Scott, as well as attorney’s fees, prejudgment interest and alleged “reputational damages” the company claims to have suffered as a result of his cancellation.
A rep for Scott did not immediately return a request for comment.
