Female rapper Trina has been sued for $50 million in damages after allegedly pulling out of an agreement to appear as a judge during an event called “America’s Next Top Rapper,” according to Hip Hop DX.
The suit claims that Trina agreed to be a judge on the online streaming video platform and competition where an aspiring rapper can win $20,000, a Universal distribution deal and a “hit production team.”
According to Courthouse News Service, Omnipresent Media and Lawrence Wright filed suit against the Miami rapper, her managing agent Rarebreed Entertainment, its principle Josh Burke, the State of Florida and J Ego Entertainment and Nunoise Travel.
Omnipresent, the company running the competition, said that Trina agreed to judge the competition and then backed out of the show, which was supposed to be held on December 30, 2011. Trina and her management team allegedly failed to send promotional videos they agreed to send and asked for more money for travel expenses.
Some attendees became unruly and heckled competition participants when they heard of Trina’s absence.
