Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa is reportedly looking to add some extra bucks into his bank account by suing an entertainment company for not following through on a paid performance.
According to reports, Wiz wants $1 million after It's My Party, Inc. damaged his reputation by falling back on a scheduled George Mason University show.
Toker extraordinaire Wiz Khalifa believes a single concert is worth 666 pounds of pot ... so he claims in a new lawsuit over a cancelled show. Wiz filed the case against concert promoter It's My Party, Inc., claiming the company booked the rapper to perform at George Mason University and pulled the plug at the last minute. According to the suit ... It's My Party promised Wiz $85,000, plus a cut of the profits, but never paid. Now Wiz wants a cool million, claiming the cancellation seriously damaged his reputation -- seriously. (TMZ)
Despite the case's seriousness, It's My Party, Inc. appears confident and has fired back at Khalifa's claims.
It's My Party has fired back, claiming Wiz is blowing smoke ... ticket sales for the 7,000-seat arena tanked, plus the company never signed on the dotted line so it's not obligated to pay anything. FUN FACT: You can buy 1 million Taco Bell soft tacos for a million bucks, and 2 million Jack in the Box tacos. (TMZ)
Outside of legal drama, the 25-year-old rapper recently talked about embracing fatherhood with his newborn son Sebastian.
"Bash is great, man, he's awesome," Khalifa told host Sway Calloway. "He's eating on time, he's taking good poops, like a good baby should. He's been good." Though Wiz is adjusting to fatherhood nicely, he does find some difficulty with his new role. "The hardest thing for me is just when he cries. I want to give him everything just so he stops crying," he said. "You never want your baby to cry." (MTV)
In late February, Wiz defended ditching studio work to focus on his first kid.
"My son wakes right up and gives me kisses on the nose :-)," Khalifa tweeted February 26th.
