Rapper Flo Rida served with legal summons on Facebook
Flo Rida failed to appear for a performance in Australia last summer. He was paid $50,000 and ignored a summons by the concert promoter to return the money. This caused a judge to allow the promoter to contact Flo Rida through his Facebook page. The concert promoter posted a public message for the rapper’s millions of fans to see. Hip Hop Wired reports:
