Rihanna and Jay Z are being sued over a 2013 concert in Nigeria that never went down. According to the plaintiff Chris Ubosi, his company Megalectrics paid Rihanna $160,000 to perform a 65-minutes set with Jay Z.
TMZ reports: “Ubosi says he struck a deal with 2 people who claimed to rep Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and Jay Z. Rihanna would get $425,000 to play for 65 minutes.
The show was supposed to go down in May — and Ubosi says he made 3 payments, totaling $160k … but then her camp asked to postpone the show. Ubosi says he agreed, but only IF Rihanna posted the new date on social media.
In the suit, he says that never happened so Megalectrics pulled the plug, and demanded its money back. Since Ubosi didn’t get the cash, he’s suing Rihanna, Jay Z and Roc Nation for the dough.”
In an official statement, Roc Nation reps said, “Rihanna, Roc Nation nor anyone associated personally or professionally with either party was in contact with this person. Unfortunately this person was scammed. Rihanna nor Roc Nation collected any money for this event.”
Looks like Chris Ubosi may take a big loss on this one.
