Flo Rida Sued $200,000 For Pulling Out Of Concert

Written by Mike Hohnen on July 23, 2012

Flo Rida is starting to earn a rep for pulling out of shows last minute for no good reason at all. The most recent account was in Canada where the ‘rapper’ gave just one day’s notification that he was pulling out of the national tour.

Promoters were furious with the news and maintain that the performer violated the terms and conditions of the contract, and also, according to MTV, are demanding damages for loss of ticket sales and drink purchases. The total sum of $200,000 has been requested from Flo.

Another instance of this happening was for his appearance at Fat As Butter Festival 2011 where Flo Rida gave promoters only a couple of hours notice that he would not be performing, and also pulled out of a handful of his headlining club shows. FAB promoters commented on the situation and also sued the performer. At least the Aussie promoters got an excuse, be it that 5 star accommodation wasn’t enough or the transport wasn’t nice enough, Canadian promoters got nada.

While Flo thinks he’s big enough to cancel on shows last minute, he’s going to have a very hard time explaining to his record label why his albums will no longer sell in Australia or Canada. However, his current single Whistle seems to be charting high in many countries, disproving any form of logic.
