Rappers Lil Wayne and Drake are set to appeal a judge order which has demanded that they pay a club promoter a staggering $400,000 (£256,000) for allegedly failing to turn up to a show.
According to court filings obtained by TMZ, the Imperial Entertainment Group (IEG) filed the lawsuit against the Young Money duo accusing them of failing to turn up to an event where they agreed to perform at the nightclub in 2011.
The She Will stars hit back at the allegations and have refused to pay the judgement, arguing that they are not responsible for the cancelled show because they were never even told about it.
They also reportedly claimed that they had not been summoned to court to defend themselves during the lawsuit.
Lil Wayne and Drake have also been said to have filed a counter-lawsuit on the grounds that IEG used an ‘unauthorized third party’ to book them. So the case continues.
Drake has recently been full of praise for fellow stars Adele and Florence Welch, from Florence and the Machine. He explained to Capital FM, “Florence is like one of my dear, dear friends, so supportive of me, and did a great cover of ‘Take Care’. Her album is so phenomenal and I actually sample Florence on my album - nobody really detected that but there’s a little Florence sample in We’ll Be Fine.”
He continued: “I’m a big Adele fan. I think she’s the biggest artist in the world right now so she deserves it.”
