With his album on hold for now, the last thing [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Young Jeezy[/lastfm] needs is to be sued for not showing up for a concert in the Virgin Islands. He needs to keep his fans and his buzz going strong until his album TM:103 gets clearance.
According to HiphopDX.com:
The Snowman allegedly bailed on a concert at which he was scheduled to perform.
Young Jeezy has been sued for bailing on Summer Splash 2011, which took place on June 18th in the Virgin Islands.
According to TMZ, organizers Paid 4 Entertainment made a deal with Jeezy to appear at the show back in March. Twelve days before the event, Jeezy’s people told them that he “might” have a conflict and “was considering not appearing” at the gig.
Paid 4 negotiated to have Jeezy appear the following day (June 19th), paying for a private jet so that the transportation wouldn’t be an issue. But according to the company, Jeezy didn’t make the flight and his reps called to cancel his appearance.
The company is suing Jeezy for $75,000 in damages as well as fraud.
I just can’t see how entertainers pass up all that money when the majority of us are going without! This type of thing sdoesn’t sit well with me when I know I still have big bills to pay.
