Travis Scott is being sued after cancelling a performance AND KEEPING THE MONEY.
Scott was set to perform at the music festival, Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience, on March 3rd this year. The contract was signed in November and he received a down payment of $217,000 on December, 3. Once the payment was received, Travis cancelled without an explanation.
Travis is also expected to perform at Madison Square Garden on March 2nd. In his contract with the festival, he could not “contract or advertise any other performance within a 120-mile radius for 90 days before or 30 days after March 2.”
Due to his cancellation, the festival was cancelled and Empire Music Ventures released a statement on their Instagram account.

Due to a last minute cancellation by our festival headliner, we have no other choice than to cancel the 2019 Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience. This decision has not been an easy one, however, it has always been the upmost importance that we deliver an excellent experience for our festival guests. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to returning in 2020 bigger and better than before.
Empire Music Ventures is suing Travis Scott for fraud and breach of contract, claiming that Scott and his manager refused to return the money and converted it to their own use.
Travi, what’s going on here?!
