Jay Z in trouble as Beat FM CEO, Chris Ubosi, sues him over canceled Rihanna concert
According to TMZ, Chris Ubosi and his company, Megalectrics, are suing RiRi over a 2013 concert that never happened. Ubosi says he struck a deal with 2 people who claimed to rep Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and Jay Z. Rihanna would get $425,000 to play for 65 minutes.
Ubosi allegedly forwarded Roc Nation $160,000, to secure the date, according to the Manhattan civil suit. But the month she was due to arrive, Rihanna’s reps said they would have to reschedule. Ubosi says he agreed, but only if Rihanna posted the new date on social media.
In the suit, he says that never happened so Megalectrics pulled the plug, and demanded its money back. Since Ubosi didn’t get the cash, he’s suing Rihanna, Jay Z and Roc Nation. Sources close to Rihanna however told TMZ that her management knew nothing about the gig and the singer never collected a dime.
A rep for Roc Nation also said: “Rihanna, Roc Nation nor anyone associated personally or professionally with either party was in contact with this person. Unfortunately this person was scammed”…. and we r suspecting d Wizkid impersonator dt was recently nabbed out there in Nigeria….
