(AllHipHop News) Rapper Rick Ross is fighting back against a breach of contract lawsuit over a missed concert in Texas, insisting the promoters violated their agreement.
Mithriac Entertainment Group (MEG) bosses claim they hired the "Hustlin'" hitmaker to perform at the University of Texas alongside Meek Mill and Machine Gun Kelly in 2012 and handed Ross a deposit of $55,000, half of his $110,000 fee for his set.
However, the show never took place and the organizers filed suit against the 41-year-old hip-hop star last year, demanding the return of their funds, plus legal fees.
They were initially granted a default judgment as Ross had failed to answer to the suit, but he appealed earlier this year, arguing MEG officials had served the legal papers to a company that has nothing to do with him.
It appears the case was reopened, and now Ross has officially filed his response in a countersuit, insisting he skipped the gig because the promoters did not stick to the agreed terms, reports The Blast.
According to paperwork obtained by the outlet, the fine print on Ross' contract stipulated MEG chiefs could not use his image on promotional material until the concert was sold out, a rule he claims they ignored, while he alleges they also failed to acquire the $2 million insurance policy they had agreed upon.
He is asking the judge overseeing the dispute to throw out MEG's lawsuit, and grant him damages in his breach of contract countersuit.
