Remy Ma And Safaree Collects Money From Benefit Concert Then Bails
Violating Contracts And Skipping Out On Concerts
Remy Ma and Safaree skipped out on a benefit concert. Now the foundation is suing to get their money back.
The Circle Foundation, focused on mentoring Chicago-area youths is suing the rappers. The foundation said the pair signed to perform at a fundraising concert back on April 21, 2018. The Foundation had their backs up against the wall and was forced to cancel the show after the rappers violated their contracts.
Allegedly their contracts specifically stated Remy and Safaree were not permitted to perform beforehand. Specifically within 60 miles of the arena within a month prior to the event. It’s called a “performance exclusivity” clause. This is pretty common clause promotors use to make sure their concerts remain in hot commodity.
In the lawsuit, the Foundation argue the rappers agreed and signed the deal. Remy getting a $35k advanced payment and Safaree receiving $7,250.
Here’s where the problem arises…Remy performed on April 8 at the Black Women’s Expo in Chicago. Then Safaree made an appearance at the Rockin’ Horse Saloon & Grill on April 14 in Chicago as well.
Ultimately, The Circle Foundation says it asked Remy and Safaree to return the money but duo never responded. So now they’re suing to get the money back, plus damages.
Remy’s attorney Eric Sanders said she is “unaware of any purported legal action filed but, if such action is initiated she will respond accordingly.”
