Flo Rida Cancels Gig In Australia; Local Promoters React

(AllHipHop News) Fans of Flo Rida were disappointed over the weekend, after the rapper canceled an appearance in Newcastle, Australia.

The Miami rapper canceled an appearance at the Fat As Butter festival yesterday after a disagreement with the promoters.

According to reports, the rapper was not happy with his hotel, transportation and other accommodations, which were allegedly not up to his standards.

“Australian fans, I was looking forward to performing for you but due to unforeseen circumstances I wasn’t able to do so last night,” Flo Rida tweeted.

A local rep for the Fat As Butter festival had a different take on the dispute and claimed Flo Rida acted like a diva and was “not in a suitable condition to perform.”

“We paid Flo to appear months ago and since he’s been on his Australian tour, he’s been an absolute Tonk,” a promoter for the festival wrote on Facebook.

The rep said Flo Rida had a “hissy fit” in Sydney and refused to come to the performance in Melbourne.

“We did everything we absolutely could to get him here, but he wouldn’t come. We’re absolutely devastated he decided not to be a part of Fat As Butter.”

According to a statement released by the venue where Flo Rida was supposed to perform, he eventually made it to the club, three hours late.

Management at the club refused to let him perform because he was not “in a suitable position to perform.”

Fans were issued a full refund for the canceled performance.

The rapper is supposed to hit the stage at Jupiers Casino in Townsville tonight (October 23).
