LOS ANGELES — Singer Rihanna is being sued for purportedly bailing on a scheduled concert in Nigeria.
A show promoter situated in Nigeria is suing Rihanna, Jay Z, and Roc Nation for a concert that was purportedly expected to happen in May 2013, TMZ reports.
A man named Chris Ubosi claim that he had signed an agreement with people who said they were from the label and that Rihanna would perform for 65 minutes for $425,000
The New York Daily News adds that the claim was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday. In the suit, Ubosi claims that he made an advanced payment of $160,000 before reps for Rihanna postponed the show.
Ubosi was willing to delay it only if Rihanna announced a new date on her social media. Rihanna never complied and the show was eventually canceled. She never returned the money and now Ubosi’s suing her in attempt to get his money back.
Sources close to Rihanna, however, say that she never made such a deal with Ubosi.
