Wiz Khalifa Suing Concert Promoter For $1 Million
Wiz was scheduled to perform at George Mason University in Fairfax County, Virgina on December 6th of last year, but Wiz claims that It’s My Party Inc., the company who booked him for the show, cancelled the concert at the last moment.
In the lawsuit, the new father states that It’s My Party was to pay him $85,000 and a portion of the profits from the event. Wiz believes he is also owed damages because the late cancellation hurt his credibility.
TMZ reports that It’s My Party says the reason the show was shut down was because they had difficulty selling the $45 tickets to fill up the 7,000 seat Patriot Center.
The company also claims that they never signed a contract with Wiz, so they are not legally required to pay the rap star.
The GMU show was the closing date of Wiz’s 36-city “The 2050 Tour” which also featured his Taylor Gang crew members Juicy J, Chevy Woods, and Lola Monroe.
