theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, the car dealership that Yo Gotti is accusing of crashing his Lamborghini Aventador during a joyride is blasting the rapper’s lawsuit — saying their employee was driving the car to do a road test and it’s not their fault another driver crashed into the luxury vehicle causing substantial damages. They’re demanding his case be dismissed ASAP.
Here’s the backstory: Gotti (real name Mario Mims) filed a federal lawsuit against Motorcars of Georgia earlier this month. Back in August 2014, the rapper purchased a Lamborghini Aventador sedan for $409,198.70 from a luxury car dealership in Florida.
Following the purchase of the luxury car he has widely showcased the Lamborghini to promote his Yo Gotti persona and brand. Then in October 2015, his business partner transported the Lambo – on behalf of the rapper – to Motorcars of Georgia (MOG) for maintenance and repair services related to the car’s accelerator, clutch and transmission. Gotti’s business partner entered into an oral agreement with MOG to provide the maintenance for the Lambo.
The rapper said neither his partner nor him granted MOG or its employees any permission to operate the Lamborghini outside of their facility for the purpose other than the requested maintenance and repair services.
He said that on December 8th, 2015, an employee of MOG named Charles Carden was driving the Lambo on public roads in and around Atlanta, Georgia. Around 6:36am, the luxury car was involved in a crash with a tractor trailer operated by Pam Transport Inc. on Interstate 85 south in Norcross, Georgia.
The rapper said MOG and their employees were never authorized to drive his car outside of their facility for personal use. The crash resulted in serious physical injury to the Lambo along with permanent depreciation of its value.
Gotti said due to MOG’s actions he has been badly damaged, depriving him of his valuable personal property, incurring repair expenses and causing the car to lose value. Further, he claims that the company owes him economic damages along with money for the loss of personal use, loss of promotional and business use of the car, pain and mental anguish and he wants attorney fees too.
Here’s the latest: On June 7th, Motorcars of Georgia headed to court and blasted Gotti’s lawsuit accusing them of taking his luxury car out for a joyride which resulted in the driver crashing the vehicle. The company explains that the damage caused to the car is not their fault and solely other parties out of their control.
They say that an employee drove the Lamborghini to the rapper’s home on December 7th in order to give it a road test after making the requested repairs. Further, they say the accident that occurred was the fault of the other driver and not their employee. Gotti also failed to show any evidence of his alleged pain and mental anguish due to any of their actions. They want the entire lawsuit dismissed and the rapper awarded NOTHING from his suit.
