Afroman - Afroman Sued Over 'Missed Concert'
Hip-hop star Afroman is facing legal action for allegedly failing to show up at a gig in Columbus, Ohio earlier this month (Apr11).
The rapper, best known for his comedic hit Because I Got High, was reportedly due to perform at the city's Patio venue on 9 April (11), but a lawsuit filed by promoters alleges he never made it to the concert.
The suit was filed on Wednesday (20Apr11) - America's unofficial National Pot Smoking Day - and the legal papers state that concert promoter Nathan Pettry paid Afroman a $1,000 (£625) deposit to secure the rapper for a performance at the Patio.
Pettry and Wallace Entertainment, Llc, the owners of the Patio, are seeking compensation for the deposit paid to Afroman, as well as promotional expenses, lost profits and the cost of ticket refunds, according to the Los Angeles Times.
