Rapper Gucci Mane Is Being Sued For Concert No-Shows
Rapper Gucci Mane along with his booking agent Johnnie Cabbell and So Icey CEO Debra Antney are currently being sued over paid performances at a venue in Pittsburgh, Pa. that Gucci allegedly failed to show up to.
According to the lawsuit filed by William Marshall of Marshall Productions and Derrick Brown of Rockstar Entertainment, the two are claiming that Gucci’s representatives took two deposits of $13,750.00 to book him for concerts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last August that were never completed. The plaintiff’s allege that “the defendants engaged in a widespread scheme scheduling concerts they knew would not take place, including the concerts involving plaintiffs that are the subject of this complaint.”
Around that time, Gucci was unable to leave the state of Georgia because of a parole violation stemming from a 2005 felony assault that ultimately landed him in prison.
Gucci’s booking agent Johnnie Cabbell of Hitt Afta Hitt Entertainment released the following statement last December in regards to allegations made about him and how he conducts business.
“I am fully aware of the recent allegations which have been made about me and my company Hitt Afta Hitt Entertainment. I am a licensed and bonded entertainment booker and have been operating my company successfully for almost a decade During my career, I have booked thousands upon thousands of shows and have worked with various promoters all over the country. I have maintained an impeccable track record and am operating within the confines of all applicable laws. I’ve always strived to do the best job I can possibly do and will continue to do that.”
The latest lawsuit was filed in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania and the plaintiffs are suing for $25,000.
