Rapper Chief Keef has been ordered to hand over $230,000 (£153,000) in damages to bosses at a promotion company after he failed to show up for a scheduled gig in London.

The 17-year-old hip-hop star, real name Keith Cozart, was due to perform at the Indigo O2 Arena on 29 December last year (12) but backed out at the last minute, prompting thousands of disappointed fans to request ticket refunds.

Executives at Team Major launched legal action against him in March (13), claiming Keef's actions cost them over $75,000 (£50,000).

The rapper failed to respond to their lawsuit and after four months, a U.S. judge ruled in favour of Team Major and ordered Keef to pay out $230,019 (£153,346) for damages, loss of earnings, and reputational harm, according to
