Rapper Trina allegedly cost a concert promoter thousands of dollars this, after the promoter is accusing her of being a no-show for a performance in St. Louis. But Trina is denying the claims.
According to court docs, Trina was paid $7,000 to perform at a club called Imperial Palace in St. Louis on May 19th. Docs also state Trina’s team informed the promoter there was a scheduling conflict, but the rapper never formally canceled in writing, so the promoter went full steam ahead with the event.
When may 19th rolled around, the Diamons Princess was a no where in sight. But the event went on without Trina, but people were pissed and several demanded refunds.
The promoter is now planning to sue Trina for at least $16,000 in damages, which includes Trina’s $7,000 fee, promotional costs, and other unspecified damages.
A rep for the rapper did agree to perform the gig, but cancelled long before the event due to other obligations. They and even tried to return her $7,000 advance. Trina’s rep says the promoter refused it.
Trina’s rep believes the promoter falsely advertised the event as a Trina concert, knowing in advance Trina wouldn’t be performing. Trina’s rep says the rapper is now weighing legal options of her own.
