A representative for Rick Ross has addressed the circumstances that led to the rapper canceling his expected show dates in Australia. Ross was set to perform Down Under but pulled out--causing many to believe that he abandoned the shows for medical reasons. But Ross' reps say the cancellation was due to contractual issues.
“[Rick] Ross was looking forward to touching the people of Australia, this event as it is the one of biggest urban festivals in Australia, he is very disappointed that he will not be performing,” a rep for Rick Ross told AllHipHop. “It is unfortunate that the payment arrangements did not meet contractual deadlines.”
Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, Lupe Fiasco, Ice Cube, Trey Songz, Naughty By Nature and Big Sean are all still expected to perform on the tour, which runs from April 14-22.
