Flo Rida has been ordered to pay $80,000 to a concert promoter in Australia for blowing off a concert at the last minute. The promoter says that Flo Rida threw a “hissy fit” moments before he was set to hit the stage and refused to perform.
According to TMZ, the promoter forked over more than $50k up front to guarantee Flo would appear at the Fat as Butter Music Festival in Newscastle back in October 2011.
After the event, Flo went on Twitter and explained, “I was looking forward to performing for you, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I wasn’t able to do so last night.”
The promoter took his case to an Australian court – which ruled in his favor … and ordered Flo to shell out $80k in performance fees and damages.
