Lil Durk has been sued for missing a scheduled concert in the Bahamas.
TMZ reports the Atlanta trapper was slated to perform in Nassau, Bahamas back in December, 2019 but was a no-show due to his arrest for a Georgia shooting earlier that year. According to the lawsuit, Fresh Entertainment, the event organizers, claim they negotiated a deal with Lil Durk and sent him $24k in up-front payments after his people assured them Durk did not have any legal troubles that would prevent him from getting into the country.
They’re suing for breach of contract because Durk never made it to the concert as The Bahamas immigration authorities refused to let him into the country after learning of his pending felony charges in Atlanta. Fresh Entertainment allege Durk never returned their cash and has refused to reschedule. They also claim he is demanding an additional $200k, on top of the original fee, if they ever want him to make up the show.
They claim they poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into promoting and putting on the event, which he was a no-show for and are seeking $350k in damages.
The lawsuit comes just days after the 5 felonies Durk was charged with in the 2019 shooting were dropped for lack of evidence.
Lil Durk was arrested for shooting a man outside The Varsity restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia shortly after the Super Bowl. Though Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis noted there was probable cause to initially arrest Durk, she decided against moving forward with the case after a thorough review of the evidence.
“While it took three years for the State to make the right decision, in the end the right decision was made and Mr. Banks can finally put this event behind him,” Durk’s lawyer Manny Arora said.
