Chief Keef Has to Pay $82,000 for Skipping Show
Chief Keef's wallet got a little lighter thanks to a Cook County Court ruling. The Chicago Tribune reports that Chief Keef and his booking agent Yung Fly Collective have been ordered to pay $82,000 for skipping a planned show at an Auburn University fraternity house last year.
The Chicago rapper was scheduled to perform at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity on April 25 of last year house. The show was booked by an Atlanta-based promoter called The Booking Collective. Chief Keef and his team were going to be paid $22,000 for the gig.
The promoter said a $12,000 deposit was made and Chief Keef would receive the $10,000 upon his arrival in Auburn. The Chicago rapper also requested roundtrip flights in coach and five-star accommodations for six members of his entourage. A jaw-dropping rider was demanded too as Chief Keef asked for the following: 10 bottles of chilled water, one bottle of pineapple juice, orange juice and cranberry juice, four Red Bull energy drinks, one bottle of Remy Martin VSOP cognac, two bottles of Ciroc vodka, two bottles of Moet Rose champagne and 50 chicken wings with fingers and french fries. Don't forget the ranch, blue cheese, honey mustard and barbecue sauce either.
Ultimately, Chief Keef did not show up. The rapper was seen making a post on Instagram on the day of the event, showing himself in the studio.
"We felt it was malicious, it was deliberate, basically a slap in our client's face," the promoter's lawyer Malcolm Jenkins told the Chicago Tribune.
The Auburn fraternity sued The Booking Collective for $70,000 in damages as a result of Chief Keef's no-show. Malcolm Jenkins said this case was settled. Terms of that agreement were not disclosed.
