Travis Scott Loses Super Bowl Gig Lawsuit, Ordered to Pay $400,000
February 26, 2019
Travis Scott has been ordered to pay nearly $400,000 after skipping out on a concert in Minnesota the night before the Super Bowl in February 2018. "The jury verdict of $383,000 is disappointing, but far less than the seven figure demands made by the promoters,” Scott’s attorney Howard King tells TMZ. “We believe the verdict will be substantially reduced or overturned in subsequent proceedings." The entertainment events company PJAM sued the rapper back in March 2018, claiming he backed out of the gig just hours before he was supposed to perform and after they paid him $150,000 and provided him with a private jet. While sources close to Scott originally said the cancellation was due to weather and logistics, PJAM says in the lawsuit that Scott "refused to show up to the event." It’s also worth noting that Kylie Jenner gave birth to her and Scott’s daughter Stormi days before the event on February 1.
