Published Apr 29, 2010A riddle: "What's worse than being sued?" Give up? Well, if you happen to be Gucci Mane, the answer is getting sued while you're already in jail. According to Contact Music, the incarcerated Atlanta, GA rapper behind 2009's The State vs. Radric Davis is facing a lawsuit from the bosses of both Marshall Productions and Rockstar Entertainment following Mane's failure to perform a pair of gigs scheduled in Pennsylvania last year.
Mane (aka Radric Davis) and two associates allegedly booked and took cash advances (two allocations of $13,750) for shows in Pittsburgh in August despite knowing that the rapper would be unable to leave his Atlanta home under his then house arrest.
Of course, Davis is now serving time for breaking parole anyway, which he originally earned for felony assault.
"The defendants," according to the legal papers of Marshall and Rockstar, "engaged in a widespread scheme scheduling concerts they knew would not take place." The two concert bosses are now seeking more than $25,000 in damages.
