Gucci Mane Hit With Lawsuit Over Canceled Concerts

The concert promoters are seeking $25,000 in damages from the imprisoned rapper for allegedly failing to perform two concerts in Pennsylvania last year.

Imprisoned rapper has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly failing to perform two concerts in Pennsylvania last year. Bosses at Marshall Productions and Rockstar Entertainment have filed papers against the hip-hop star, real name Radric Davis, and two business partners, claiming the trio booked two shows in Pittsburgh - and took cash deposits for both - even though they knew that legal restrictions on Mane's travel would prevent the gigs from taking place.

The concert promoters claim the rapper's reps took two deposits of $13,750 to secure his appearance at shows last August. Parole restrictions stemming from a 2005 felony assault prevented the rap star from leaving his home in Georgia at the time.

Violations of his parole agreement eventually resulted in Gucci Mane's arrest and incarceration in November 2009. In the legal papers, filed in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, Marshall Productions' William Marshall and and Derrick Brown of Rockstar Entertainment state, "the defendants engaged in a widespread scheme scheduling concerts they knew would not take place."

The two concert bosses are seeking more than $25,000 in damages.
