Travis Scott will be heading into court soon.
Empire Music Ventures filed a lawsuit against the “Sickomode” rapper Friday for fraud and breach of contract. The venue claims that Scott was paid a $200,000 deposit to appear.
The group agreed to the terms for the performance, which was to be held on March 2 at the Empire Polo Grounds, for a fee of $400,000 for a one hour and 15-minute set. Since Scott canceled the entire festival was canceled.
“Due to a last minute cancellation by our festival headliner, we have no other choice than to cancel the 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience,” the statement read. “This decision has not been an easy one, however, it has always been the upmost importance that we deliver an excellent experience for our festival guests. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to returning in 2020 bigger and better than before.”
The group also wants Scott to return the $200,000 deposit and pay for damages. Reps from Travis Scott still hasn’t responding to the claims.
