Travis Scott Sued for Canceling Concert Days After Stormi Webster’s Birth
The days after Stormi Webster was born should’ve been the happiest of Travis Scott‘s life, but they’re now turning into serious drama. The 25-year-old has been sued by an entertainment events company for canceling a concert just days after Kylie Jenner gave birth to their daughter.
In a lawsuit obtained by The Blast, PJAM says it paid the rapper $150,000 up front to perform at a pre-Super Bowl party in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on February 3, but allegedly, “despite his contractual obligations, he refused to show up for the event.” Stormi was born on February 1.
It’s interesting because while the musician didn’t show up to the festivities in Minneapolis shortly after he became a dad, he went to Las Vegas on the same night and performed at Marquee Nightclub. Reports stated at the time that he decided to go to there instead so he could be close to the 20-year-old.
Travis was supposed to receive a total of $200,000 for the performance, his agent got a $10,000 booking fee and a private jet was arranged for him to get from Los Angeles to Minnesota. He has not yet paid back any of the money he was given up front.
The suit states, “As a result of this breach, [PJAM] suffered significant damages including the sums paid to XX Global [the legal agent and representative of Scott] and [Scott] and their booking agent, the sums paid to arrange Webster’s travel, the sum’s paid to advertise the event, lease the venue and hire staff, and the lost profits [PJAM] would have realized on this event.”
PJAM says it suffered “reputational harm” because of Travis’ cancellation and wants this case to go to trial with a jury. The company is asking for damages, coverage of attorney’s fees and prejudgment interest.
