Tekashi 6ix9ine was supposed to do a show in Humble, Texas on July 27.
However, he bailed at the last minute, causing speculation that the Prince family intervened and didn't allow 6ix9ine to perform in the Houston area.
At the time, 6ix9ine claimed he didn't go on because the promoters, JJD Entertainment, didn't pay him.
Now JDD is suing 6ix9ine for defamation, claiming 6ix9ine was paid about 120K, but still left without playing.
“Shortly after Defendant, Daniel Hernandez, failed to perform in accordance with the agreement, he went on a livestream with DJ Akademiks where the Defendant, Daniel Hernandez stated that the contract price was $250,000.00, that he received a $45,000.00 deposit, and $70,000.00 in cash, knowing that those statements were false. On that livestream, Defendant, Daniel Hernandez, adamantly states that the only reason he left the concert site was because he did not get paid, knowing that statement was false.”
The promoter also paid over 100K for the venue and 28K to fly 6ix9ine in private.
They are seeking damages.
