Travis Scott has been slapped with a lawsuit after a performance deal in the Coachella area allegedly went bad. As The Blast has reported, Kylie Jenner's baby daddy has been accused of bailing on a festival, held in the California desert, and causing it to be canceled.
In court papers, the organizers are accusing hip hop star Scott, 26, of stealing more than $200,000!
On Friday, Jan. 4, Empire Music Ventures reportedly filed a lawsuit against the rapper--for fraud and breach of contract.
The Blast obtained the documents which reveal that Scott had a contract to perform at the upcoming 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience, held on the Empire Polo Grounds, the same place as the famed Coachella Music Festival.
Scott was to receive $400,000 for a 75-minute performance on March 2, 2019. The deal was worked out in Nov. 2018. He was given a deposit of $217,500, but after the deposit was paid on December 3, 2018, Scott’s team allegedly called and canceled the performance with no explanation, the lawsuit charges.
The organizers contend that they were forced to cancel the whole festival because of Scott bowing out.
Empire Music Ventures stated in the legal papers, "Defendants have stolen Plaintiff’s money," adding Scott and his manager "refuse to return the money … each of them have kept it, and wrongfully converted it to their own use. They have stolen 217,500.00."
Reps for Scott haven't commented. Kylie, 21, gave birth to daughter Stormi byScott on Feb. 1, 2018. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has sparked engagement rumors by wearing a big diamond ring but there is no word on her marrying Scott any time soon.
