Another Day, Another Lawsuit: Young Jeezy Sued For Skipping Concert Date

Things are not looking good for Young Jeezy. His album keeps getting delayed, now he’s being sued for $75,000 for fraud and damages. According to TMZ.Com, Young Jeezy  is being sued by the coordinators of Summer Splash 2011, a concert event in the Virgin Islands, for not showing up to perform. Below is how TMZ is reporting the story:

According to a lawsuit filed Friday in the Virgin Islands, Paid 4 Entertainment struck a deal with Young Jeezy back in March to do the show. They claim just 12 days before the show, Jeezy’s people told him he “might” have a conflict with the June 18 show date and “was considering not appearing.”

According to the lawsuit, Paid 4 Entertainment implored Jeezy to make it work — and they reached a new agreement for Jeezy to appear on June 19.

Paid 4 claims they went so far as getting a private jet to make it easy on Jeezy … but he didn’t make the flight.  His reps eventually called to say Jeezy was pulling the plug.

The company is suing for fraud, among other things, and wants more than $75,000 in damages.
