Concert Promoter Files Lawsuit Against Atlantic Records Rapper Plies
On Monday (July 16), Patrick Monfiston of P Entertainment Promotions filed a suit in an Alabama Circuit Court against Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic Records artist Plies and his management due to a no-show, breach of contract and slander.
Reports state that the rapper never showed up to perform as scheduled on July 8, and that the next day Plies did a radio interview on WZHT Hot-105 in which he stated that he never received payment to perform. The rapper also allegedly stated in his radio interview that Monfiston should give all money back to the people who attended the show. Patrick Monifiston denied all claims and even presented a copy of the wire transfer to the Montgomery Advertiser newspaper for $5,500 that he sent to Plies ISA Bomb Entertainment management team. He also produced a receipt for $1,500 that he claims was also deposited in a bank account for the rapper and his management.
â€œToo many artists feel they can come in and do us however they want,â€ Monfiston told the Montgomery Advertiser. â€œIâ€™m going to show them theyâ€™re wrong. If Plies attempts to perform any show here, I will have him arrested. He must fulfill the terms of his contract first.â€
