Rick Ross is struggling with business relationships lately — first he’s dumped by Reebok … now a Florida tour booker says the rapper stiffed them … and after YEARS of working together.
Total Access Talent filed a lawsuit in a Miami federal court this week … saying Rick Ross Touring hired it to book and organize a month’s worth of Florida dates starting last November … but never paid the 10% commission.
Which is really weird … because Total Access says it’s been booking Rick’s tours since 2004 without incident. The lawsuit says they were so comfortable doing business … always been paid … that they arranged the tour with a verbal agreement.
But Total Access says this time, Ross’ camp did an end-around after the company already set up opening acts (Meek Mill, Machine Gun Kelly, Wale, to name-drop a few), arranged dates, prepared contracts … the works.
Total Access says Ross owes at least $171,000 in commissions. He couldn’t be reached for comment.
Times are a little tighter for Rick these days … as TMZ first reported, he stands to lose between $3 million and $5 million after Reebok ripped up his endorsement deal after his date-rape lyrics kicked up a storm.
