Young Thug’s Lawyers Want To Drop Him
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Young Thug is accused of screwing his lawyers out of 5 months’ pay and now they have headed to court demanding the judge allow them to drop their client ASAP.
Here’s the latest: On January 4th, Thug’s lawyers, Hayden Pace & Jordan Arkin, went to court demanding approval to drop their client. According to the docs, the lawyers accuse Thug of not making a payment for the firm’s fees, charges or costs for over 5 months.
They repeatedly demanded payment, but the rapper has refused to pay. A letter was sent back in November to Thug explaining they were going to drop him as a client, if he didn’t pay.
The firm says he never responded and now they are demanding the judge allow them to drop their client and have him fend for himself in the legal battle.
Here’s the backstory: An online hip-hop merchandiser called WeThePlugg.com sued the rapper last year. The website explained they ran a contest where a winner would get to record a collaboration with Thug. They agreed to pay Thug $10k for recording the track with the winner.
They said they paid him $5k as a down payment before the winner was chosen. However, once it was time for the collaboration, the rapper went M.I.A and then his management said he wasn’t interested in the project — despite being paid the down payment.
The winner recorded a song but there was no collab with Thug. WeThePlugg.com filed suit demanding the $5k returned plus damages for a total of $14,500.
Thug fired back at the lawsuit recently, demanding the entire case be thrown out of court.
He called the case nothing more than a “stick up” in hopes of a quick settlement. The rapper claimed there were no facts to support the company’s alleged damages and said the allegations were so vague and ambiguous, there is no way he could even respond.
Hayden Pace & Jordan Arkin represented Thug in this case.
