Chief Keef sued for bailing on breast cancer benefit


Rapper Chief Keef is in the midst of yet another controversy. The Chicago-born hip-hop star is being sued for failing to perform at a Cleveland charity concert last year. TMZ reports that Kim Productions is filing suit against Keef, (born Keith Cozart), claiming that the rapper failed to perform at the RapCure cancer benefit in June 2013. According to court documents, Kim Productions says that it paid Keef a $15K deposit to perform at the event; the remaining balance, $10K–would be paid at the event.

Allegedly, Chief Keef’s representatives demanded another $2,500 advance, in order to cover travel expenses. Kim Productions allegedly wired the money and Keef was supposed to be on his way to the show.

But it is alleged that Keef failed to show up on time and he was so late that the concert was cancelled, with ticket holders getting full refunds. So the charity actually lost money on the event. Kim Productions is suing for $26,000; which accounts for the money that was paid to Chief Keef, plus money spent on acquiring the venue, equipment for the show, advertising and the refunded tickets.

No one from Chief Keef’s camp has spoken on this lawsuit or this incident as of yet.
