Birdman Sued Over Failed Show
Cash Money CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams is facing a $75,000 lawsuit over a failed show in Las Vegas. Lana Fuchs and her company Billionaire Mafia LLC filed the suit in United States District Court for the District of Nevada–Las Vegas. Fuchs claims that Birdman failed to appear for an August 17th, 2010 show at Club Eve.
The lawsuit claims that Birdman was wired $50,000 through a Florida attorney named Philip Brutus, who claimed he represented the rapper and Nicki Minaj. Birdman says that Brutus does not represent him and that his signature was forged on documents.
“Birdman had stated that he never signed the agreement in question, but it appears that his signature on the agreement appeared to be not Birdman's, but a forged signatures,” the lawsuit alleges.
Lana Fuchs discovered that Birdman's performance fee is only $35,000, not the $50,000 that was wired. She is still seeking at least $75,000 in actual damages, lost profits or other consequential damages. Birdman and Brutus are both named in the suit.
