Fat As Butter Will Serve Flo Rida Via Facebook

Written by Marc Zanotti on May 3, 2012

American performer Flow Rida could be served via Facebook after failing to make a scheduled appearance at last year’s Fat As Butter festival.

As Music Feeds reported at the time, Flo Rida failed to turn up to the festival, forcing promoters to alert fans on the day that he would not be performing as expected.

Subsequently, Flo Rida was court ordered to pay organisers the sum of $80,000, which covered his appearance fee of $55,000 and an additional $25,000 in damages.

Yesterday, Nine MSN reported that The NSW District Court froze Tramar Dillard’s (Flow Rida’s actual name) Australian assets in March but are still waiting on a response from the singer.

As a result, the court has granted the claim be served to Dillard via his Facebook profile.

Festival promoter Brent Lean said the move to serve the claim via Facebook comes after an inability to reach Dillard psychically.

“We tried to serve him physically on several occasions when he was out here but he got wise to it pretty quickly,” Lean said

“We couldn’t get near him in the end because he was constantly surrounded by an entourage and security so we looked into ways of serving him via Facebook because he’s very active on social media,” he said.

Dillard has 28 days from the date of being served to reply with a legal defence.

“We’ve painted him into a corner, now we’re confident the matter is coming to a close,” Lean said.

“All we’ve ever wanted is an explanation and our money back and an apology,” he said.
