Taiwanese Company Sues Over Fake Nelly Show

(AllHipHop News) A production company based in Taiwan is suing a United States booking agency accused of illegally booking rapper Nelly and keeping tens-of-thousands of dollars in performance fees. Taiwanese company Now The Loop is suing Capital Connections Agency (CCA) for over $250,000, after the company took $40,000 to book Nelly. Now The Loop accuses CCA of being a criminal enterprise that claims to represent a variety of top celebrities ranging from Tiger Woods and Bill Gates, to Ja Rule and the Obama’s. According to the lawsuit, Now The Loop wired $40,000 to book Nelly for a December 31, 2009 party, but CCA head Durby Brandon claimed the money never arrived on time. When he did receive the money, he claimed that it was received late and that Nelly would not be showing up for the engagement. Durban allegedly then offered the services of Ja Rule, whom In The Loop had already booked through his real representatives. CCA’s name is confusingly similar to Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which represents artists like Mariah Carey, Bow Wow, Eve, Fabolous, Usher, Jeezy and a number of other top name talent across all genres of music.
