Rick Ross Being Sued for $200,000 After Failure to Appear at Show
Rick Ross is being sued by a London promoter, Christian Ezechie, after failing to appear at a show in 2012 and advancing the rapper almost $200,000.
Lawyers for Ezechie have been looking for Ross to serve him papers, but is having difficulty tracking down the Mayback Music Group head. Evidently, a registered address for Rick Ross Touring ended up being a UPS store and a man who lives in Ross’ Miami home didn’t have any information to track him down.
Due to security guards, most process servers are hesitant to serve papers during a show or appearance.
The lawsuit was filed in October and is going public with the information, perhaps in hopes he will surface. Other MMG acts that were scheduled to appear include Wale, Meek Mill and Omarion. According to the suit, Ezechie advanced $100,000 for Ross and almost another $100,000 for the remaining three artists.
“It’s blatant robbery he’s doing, and he’s an artist worth $50 million,” the promoter’s lawyer claims to Page Six. “We are prepared to track him to the ends of the earth.”
If Ross doesn’t make it whereabouts clear before June 4, a judge has ruled Ezechie can file a motion for “alternative service.”
