T.I. Faces $390K Lawsuit For Skipping High School Graduation Party
T.I. is being sued for allegedly skipping out on a high school graduation party. According to TMZ, the 36-year-old rapper missed a scheduled gig at a graduation bash in Florida, and the event organizers are looking to recoup the $390,000 spent on booking and marketing.
Planet Productions claims to have been weary of booking Tip due to the shooting at his concert at New York City’s Irving Plaza in May. The Hustle Gang leader’s people reportedly convinced Planet Productions that the show wouldn’t result in violence.
In the end, Planet Productions says Tip never showed up, despite being paid $90,000 to perform. The company also claims that it spent $300,000 on marketing.
Tip has not yet responded to the lawsuit allegations.
