AceShowbiz - Chris Brown is once again facing legal trouble. The "No Guidance" singer has been slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly keeping a $1.1 million payday after canceling a benefit concert during a soundcheck.
Filing the court documents was LeJuan Bailey, owner and VP of DML Real Estate Investors and Construction. LeJuan claimed she and her company booked the R&B singer to perform at her "One Night Only Benefit Concert" to raise money for Houston and Louisiana residents whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Ida and Nicholas in 2021.
LeJuan noted that she paid $1.1 million for Chris' fee, accommodations and private plane requests. According to the businesswoman, the singer acknowledged his receipt of her last wire transfer but refused to refund her the payments.
"I acted in good faith and sponsored this concert out of love and respect for residents in need," she said. "I am appalled that Chris Brown refuses to refund my money for a show he did not appear to after we announced our show and sold tickets."
"At this point, it is my humble belief that Chris Brown's actions are parallel to pure theft," she continued . "He has the unmitigated gall to take my money, stand up the residents of Houston, then return to the city to perform on August 17, 2022. My message to Chris Brown: We will not sit back and allow you to disrespect the victims of Hurricane Ida and Nicholas in need."
Chris will perform in Houston on August 17 along with Lil Baby as a part of their "One of Them Ones Tour". The pair kicked off the tour on July 15 in Raleigh, North Carolina and they are set to conclude the Rolling Loud-sponsored tour on August 27 in Las Vegas after greeting fans across the United States.
