Yo Gotti Ordered To Pay Promoter
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Yo Gotti has been hit with an $82k judgement in a legal battle with a concert booker who accused the rapper of screwing him over by blowing off a scheduled show in 2014. Now the man has returned to court to begin the process of collecting on his money.
Here’s the latest: On November 9th, Martin headed to Federal Court and filed a motion to confirm the arbitration award against Gotti, which is the first step to collecting the money he is owed by the rapper.
Here’s the backstory: Earlier this year, a concert booker named Mario Martin took the rapper to arbitration court – which is confidential. He claimed he paid the rapper’s representative a substantial amount of money for his services.
He accused the rapper of screwing him over on their deal for Gotti to perform in Alabama back in 2014. The deal stated that the rapper would be paid $55k for his performance, 3 coach flight tickets, 8-9 hotel rooms and a rider that included 2 bottles of Ace of Spade and 4 bottles of Moet Rose, along with $300 food per diem per day.
Martin presented evidence showing he paid the majority of the $55k to Gotti’s rep prior to the show and was to pay the remaining due on the day of the show.
However, the rapper failed to attend the hosting gig at the club. On August 16th, the arbitrator found Martin had invested a good amount of money on the planned show and awarded him $82k against the rapper.
