Published May 13, 2010Wherever Lil Wayne goes, a trail of lawsuits follows in his wake. The rapper has already been sued for unpaid royalties twice in less than a month, and now investors have filed a lawsuit against Edward Strickland and Andre Langston of RMF Productions, the concert promoters behind Lil Wayne's three cancelled shows in Rochester, NY in 2008/2009.
According to Hip-Hop Wired, Lil Wayne was advanced $100,000 to perform at Rochester's Blue Cross Arena on October 26, 2008, but he cancelled the show citing a poor sound system. He rescheduled for December 6, but this date was also cancelled, this time due to rehearsals. A final date on January 21 was also scrapped and his plans to perform in Rochester were abandoned, but he never returned the money.
Now, investors are blaming the promoters for the cancellations and are suing RMF for $180,000. The good news for Lil Wayne is that he is not mentioned in this latest lawsuit; the bad news is he may have to show up in court to testify.
In February 2009, RMF Productions filed a $1.3 million lawsuit against Lil Wayne and his manager Cortez Bryant.
