Rapper Tyga has settled a $1.4 million lawsuit with a concert promoter for failing to perform in the United Arab Emirates, documents obtained by The Blast show.
While terms of the settlement have not been revealed, the case will be dismissed.
Heavy Rotation reportedly paid Tyga $141,000 for three shows in Abu Dhabi. However, ahead of the gig, the rapper called-off the performance after he was offered more money by a club in Dubai. The promoter sued him last year because they never received the advance back and accused Tyga of keeping the money for himself so he could travel to the country. Tyga, on the other hand, claims the promoter didn’t have the proper approval for his scheduled performance in Abu Dhabi.
Tyga denied all allegations and said he never agreed to restrictions of not performing at other venues in the area. He asked the case to be thrown out.
This suit follows his $10 million massive legal battle with Cash Money and Young Money over unpaid royalties for two albums after he parted ways with the companies in 2016. However, Cash Money and Young Money denied any wrongdoing, noting that Tyga was actually the one who owed them money for paid advances that were not reimbursed. The case was officially closed last week after Tyga dismissed all claims against both record companies.
