Rihanna may have belted ‘Bitch Better Have My Money,’ but a Nigerian promoter is chanting the same back at her.
Find out why below…
TMZ reports that Chris Ubosi and his company Megalectrics are suing the questionable talent over a 2013 concert — that never happened.
He alleges that he struck a deal with two people who claimed to rep Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and its founder Jay Z. For the proposed show, which would have lasted 65 minutes, RiRi would receive $425,000.
Per the suit, Ubosi asserts that he made three payments totalling $160,000 only for Team Rih to request a postponement. He agreed — on the condition that the 28-year-old posted the revised date on social media. It never happened and Ubosi subsequently axed the show, demanding the money back. When it wasn’t received, he sued.
To complicate the matter more, sources close to Rih tell TMZ that her management actually knew nothing about the show and she never collected a cent. Should that be the case, it would suggest Ubosi was a victim of a scam.
