Lil Uzi Vert Hit With $600,000 Lawsuit
Lil Uzi Vert‘s “retirement” is being interrupted by a lawsuit, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
According to the newspaper, a complaint was filed on the behalf of concert promoters in Arizona, who claim that when the Philadelphia rapper abruptly canceled a show in Tucson in October, it left them $600,000 out of pocket.
Per the filing, the rapper, born Symere Woods, breached the agreed-upon contract by failing to appear for the performance. The day before the show was to have taken place, the venue tweeted that it had been “postponed.” But according to the AJC, the suit claims that the rapper “failed or refused to schedule another concert date or reimburse [the promoters] for its expenses.”

The lawsuit is being handled by the Fulton County Superior Court due to the fact that Uzi listed Georgia as his place of business as well as his residence.
The legal matter arrives at a tumultuous time for the rapper; he’s alluded to “retiring” from music for months now, due to his label barring him from releasing his new album.
Neither Uzi nor his management team has yet to offer up a response to the case.
