EXCLUSIVE: Rapper Juelz Santana Sued Over Violent Concert
The promoter of a Juelz Santana concert that turned violent has made good on his threats to seek justice in court and has filed a $250,000 lawsuit against the rapper.
Juelz Santana is being sued by an Allentown, Pennsylvania promoter named Lamont Williams, who owns Loud N Wild Entertainment.
Williams lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, claims the rapper almost ruined his reputation by showing up an hour late to a show and then refusing to perform.
The failed concert took place on Sunday, July 16 at the Crocodile Rock Club in Allentown.
Over 1,000 patrons in the audience watched at least dozen opening acts while awaiting Santana, who was paid $20,000 to perform at the venue.
According to reports, Santana showed up at the venue 15 minutes early, as the final act was winding down a set, which they had paid $1,000 for.
The group allegedly smashed a wireless microphone and turned over sound equipment when their microphones were cut off as the sound man made way for Santana.
Santana allegedly walked on the stage, then turned around and simply left, without performing.
A number of fights broke out in the crowd, as a result of his brief appearance and failed performance.
State Police with help from several different County Police Departments Police were called in to break up the fracas, which occurred around 1:30 am.
Police arrested two people, while four other people were treated for minor injuries at Sacred Heart Hospital.
Santana is now being sued for breach of contract, losses Williams suffered for having to reimburse consumers in ticket sales and attorney fees, plus court costs.
Williams is represented by Emeka Igwe, Esq. and entertainment lawyer Paul W. Gardner, II, Esq.
