Plies Loses Court Case

ImageA concert promoter in Montgomery, Alabama won a default judgment against rapper Plies after claiming he failed to show up for a July 8th concert.


In the lawsuit filed July 16, Patrick Monifston of P Entertainment Promotions claimed the Fort Meyers, Florida artist never bothered to show up for a scheduled performance in Montgomery, leaving some 1,500 fans hanging.

When the crowd was told that Plies would not take the stage, several fans began fighting, causing thousands of dollars in damages to the club, reports the Montgomery Advertiser. Monifston sued the rapper for breach of contract as well as slander, after Plies reportedly made disparaging comments about him on radio station WZHT Hot 105.     

A default judgment was issued for Monifston after Plies and his manager David Gay failed to appear in court. While terms of the judgment were not revealed, Monifston said it was at least $11,000, which covers the amount he spent to bring Plies to Montgomery, as well as the damages the club sustained.
