Chance the Rapper Sued For $3 Million By Former Manager

Published: Saturday 5th Dec 2020 by Ryan

Chance the Rapper (real name: Chancelor Johnathan Bennett) has a legal battle on his hands.

The GRAMMY Award-winner is being sued by his former manager, Pat Corcoran, who accuses the rapper of refusing to pay $3 million in unpaid commissions.

More details below:

In the complaint filed Cook County Circuit Court of Illinois, Corcoran alleges that Chance ignored his professional advice in the build-up to his debut album, ‘The Big Day.’ He also accuses the music superstar of blaming him for the album’s mixed-response and lack of ticket sales on the accompanying tour.

Additionally, he goes on to claim that he not paid an amount of commission upon his firing in April of this year.

Documents from the suit read:

“Instead of acknowledging the numerous distractions and artistic compromises that inevitably resulted from time wasted in the studio, all of which contributed to a lackluster album evidenced by historically low ticket sales, Bennett ultimately blamed Corcoran for the judgement rendered by his fanbase rather than accept that his own lack of dedication had doomed the project.”

Despite months of outreach and efforts at reconciliation, Bennett has refused to pay Corcoran the amounts Corcoran is fairly owed under the parties’ long-standing agreement and well-settled course of conduct.”

Chance has since released a statement to Complex, saying:

“Mr. Corcoran has filed a suit for allegedly unpaid commissions. In fact, Mr. Corcoran has been paid all of the commissions to which he is legally entitled. Most of the complaint consists of self-serving and fabricated allegations that are wholly unrelated to Mr. Corcoran’s claim for commissions and were plainly included in a calculated attempt to seek attention. Those allegations are wholly without merit, are grossly offensive and we will respond to them within the context of the litigation.”

    Chance you stated that you wanted to focus on your family that’s why you canceled the tour

    I hate when artists lie when their ticket sales are in the toilet

    I have no respect for them. If you lie for that simple reason, what makes you think you’re not lying about $3M that you owe?

    Chancellor is so annoying to me. And once he said Justin Bieber’s mew music was the equivalent of Michael Jackson, I completely threw in the towel on his azzz. So, in my mind, he’s guilty (allegedly)
