Young Thug Facing Civil Lawsuit
Young Thug may be in custody for felony racketeering charges, but it’s not stopping lawsuits from being filed against him.
A-1 Concert Entertainment claims Thugger’s company, YSL Touring LLC, failed to pay back a concert deposit after the show was canceled due to his arrest earlier this year.
According to reports, A-1 claims they gave the rapper a $150,000 deposit to secure his service for a concert performance set for June.
The owner of A-1, A’lencio Graham, alleges he reached out to YSL seeking reimbursement and was “assured that he would receive a refund of the funds.” However, A-1 is still waiting on the return.
Young Thug Breached Contract
A-1 is claiming The “Ski” rapper breached their contract by not returning the deposit if Thugger canceled the show.
According to reports, A-1’s lawyers gave more detailed information regarding the breach, writing:
“Defendants breached the agreement by canceling the performance on May 9, 2022, when Williams was arrested on numerous felonies charges.”
“Defendants breached the agreement when they failed to reimburse Plaintiff the $150,000 deposit paid.”
Young Thug’s legal team has not responded to the suit.
