Rich The Kid Ordered To Pay Fashion Nova $130,000 Over Contract Dispute
It looks like Rich the Kid has found himself in a bit of hot water.
The rapper has been ordered to pay popular online brand Fashion Nova over $130,000 in damages. According to reports, Rich owes the clothing boutique total of $132,637.75 after a “default judgment” was entered against him in the Los Angeles County Courts. A default is entered when one party fails to respond to a lawsuit. The sum includes $100,000 in damages, $29,526 in interest, and $3,111 in costs associated with the case.
According to reports, the 28-year-old rapper allegedly breached his contract with the company, consisting of an endorsement deal to promote the brand. Rich the Kid was said to have been paid $100,000 advance to be signed with the company. Once onboard, his contract was to include him doing a number of promotions, including mentioning the company on social media and giving a shout-out to them in one of his songs. Fashion Nova says he failed to do so leaving them with 2.1 million in damages.
After the lawsuit was filed, The “New Freezer” rapper seemingly took to social media to respond;
Sh*t is crazy m*th*f*ck*rs tryna sue a n*gg* left and right. It’s time for us to promote ownership, not that slave sh*t.
This isn’t the first run in with the courts for Rich the Kid.
In 2017 the rapper’s former managers sued him for $3.5 Million claiming he violated the terms of his contract. At the time, the company was granted a default judgment against the rapper and he was ordered to pay them $1.1 Million.
