Lil Durk has been charged for missing a scheduled concert in the Bahamas owing to his arrest in 2019 for a shooting in Georgia. Fresh Entertainment claims they invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in the concert and are demanding $350,000 for breach of contract. The plaintiffs claim they paid the rapper $24k in advance.
According to Fresh Entertainment, they expressly questioned Durk at the time whether he had any legal difficulties that would prevent him from performing, and he stated that he did not.
The announcement comes after Atlanta Attorney General Fani T. Willis dismissed the lawsuit against Durk. He was charged with five felonies, including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and unlawful association with a gang in the commission of a crime, all of which were related to his alleged involvement in the shooting.
"While it took three years for the State to make the right decision, in the end, the right decision was made and Mr. Banks can finally put this event behind him," Manny Aurora, an attorney for Durk, said in a statement provided to WSB-TV. Despite having been in clear legally, Durk is now facing a breach of contract lawsuit.
