Tekashi 69 is accused of flying from Florida to Houston to collect $75k in cash from a concert promoter — only to leave the venue and not perform as agreed.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, a Texas concert promoter JJD Entertainment is suing the rapper (real name: Daniel Hernandez), 6IX9INE Touring and Murda MGMT.
In the suit, JJD — run by a man named Jamie Dominquez — claims it met with one of Tekashi’s reps Will Cornish.
The promoter hashed out a deal with Tekashi’s rep to have him perform in Houston on June 27, 2021. The event was scheduled to go down at the Humble Civic Center.
The deal had Tekashi being paid $45k upon execution of the paperwork and another $75k in cash on the day of the event. He was also to be paid $20k for a jet from Boca Roton to Texas.
In the suit, the promoter says he paid Tekashi the $45k and booked the private jet at a cost of $28k.
He says the rapper’s team kept renegotiating the deal which ended up costing him an additional $100k.
JJD says Tekashi got on board the private jet and arrived at the venue on June 27. He was paid the $75k in cash but then decided to leave the site without performing.
The promoter says he had to refund tickets and “suffered a loss on all expense incurred” putting the show together.
The suit says JJD Entertainment spent $178k as well as over $100k for the venue rental, security and insurance.
Tekashi is also being sued for defamation due to an interview he gave about the cancelation. He claimed the promoter stiffed him out of money and that was the reason for him backing out.
The suit says Tekashi claimed he was to be paid $250k for the show, which JJD denies. The company is seeking additional damages against Tekashi for causing harm to their reputation.
