Rapper 6ix9ine has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly “ghosting” a streaming service!
The recently issued lawsuit is accusing the Brooklyn rapper of breaching a contract for failing to promote or show up for two different concert dates.
According to Billboard, “In a complaint filed Thursday in Los Angeles court, a company called Streammusic claims that it paid Tekashi $150,000 to play the shows on its Stream Live app and to promote them on Instagram. But when it reached out, Streamusic says he did nothing on social media – and then flaked on the shows entirely.”
The deal between 6ix9ine and the streaming service took place back in August. The streaming service reportedly paid the “Trollz” rapper “$150,000 to play two concerts and give the company the right to live stream them on its app.”
Also, the deal required that 6ix9ine to create a promotional video for his main Instagram page and his story.
The first show was on December 29 and Streammusic said they reached out to 6ix9ine in early December. But they did not get a response. Eventually, Streammusic heard back from 6ix9ine and agreed to reschedule for January 29. But once again, 6ix9ine went ghost.
Instead of asking for $150,000 back, “Streammusic is demanding $2 million in damages from Tekashi, including $1 million in the form of compensation and another $1 million in punitive damages.”
