Promoter of Snoop Dogg sued for $115K over botched appearance
The name of rapper Snoop Dogg is being dragged in a messy lawsuit between the rapper’s concert promoter and the bosses of a Los Angeles nightclub over breach of contract.
According to reports, executives at hotspot Exchange LA — the nightclub in question — filed a $100,000 lawsuit in Los Angeles against a promotion company called Movement Management, claiming they negotiated a deal with the promoters of the company to stage an appearance by the hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg at the venue in June 30. Exchange LA handed over $15,000 of the agreed $25,000 fee as a deposit.
However, after making the down payment, Movement Management later revealed that Snoop Dogg had been double-booked and could no longer make the June 30 appearance as previously promised, because the rapper has tour commitments in Europe.
Bosses at Exchange LA said that they asked the promotion company for the return of their deposit, but Movement Management still has not responded to the request, so now, Exchange has decided to file a lawsuit for breach of contract and fraud.
Owners of the venue are suing Movement Management for the $15,000 refund, plus an additional $100,000 in punitive damages.
Snoop Dogg is not believed to have been named in the legal papers filed by Exchange LA.
Attempts to reach Movement Management were unsuccessful while calls to the reps of Snoop were not returned.
