(AllHipHop News) John “DC Young Fly” Whitfield has gone from being an internet personality to starring on Wild ‘N Out and appearing in the movie Almost Christmas.
According to DC, his rise in the entertainment industry was done without much help from the agent he hired.
TMZ reports the Atlanta-raised comedian is now suing Archive Entertainment’s Bobby Patterson for not providing the support that was expected from the firm.
The suit claims a 2013 contract with Patterson included promises of record deals, movie/TV roles, and a line of merchandise.
However, DC says he was the one that secured his jobs and Patterson failed to cover certain expenses connected to his career.
The Archive Entertainment agreement supposedly gave Patterson 65% of DC’s record sales and an additional 35% for his merch sales or endorsement deals.
The host of Chris Brown’s “The Party Tour” is asking the court to void his deal and for Patterson to pay damages.
Last July, Deadline reported DC Young Fly signed with the ICM Partners talent agency.
