Cash Money’s Stafford Brothers sued for extreme parties in L.A.


Electronica duo The Stafford Brothers are being hit with litigation following a string of “extreme” parties the duo hosted in Los Angeles. The pair, who are signed to Cash Money Records, were hit with a lawsuit this week after the owners of a home they rented in Studio City sued them for allegedly leaving it in a state of disrepair.

TMZ reports that the owners say the duo used the house for several parties, including a party for the video shoot for their Lil Wayne-assisted single “Hello,” and that they violated the terms of the leasing agreement. Among the violations are pouring liquid nitrogen throughout the house, installing a skate ramp, allowing a live kangaroo on the premises and illegally serving alcohol.

The owners are seeking more than $100,000 to fix repairs and another $25,000 in punitive damages.

The Stafford Brothers, Matt and Chris, signed with Cash Money in 2012, becoming the first dance/electronica act to join the famed hip-hop label. They are among the most celebrated DJs in the world, and are especially popular in their native Australia. There they host a weekly radio show on the Australian radio network.
