Young Thug Accused of Trying To Extort Show Venue, Booking Co. Sued


Young Thug agreed to perform at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel Halloween weekend for $85K, but refused to get on stage if the hotel didn’t pay an extra $20K last minute, and now he’s being sued as a result. The Roosevelt is suing Suntoucher Entertainment, claiming they locked Thugger’s October 28th performance for $85K and gave the booker half the fee a month ahead of the gig.

The Roosevelt says about a week before the concert, Young Thug contacted them saying he was not repped by Suntoucher and put them in touch with his agents at CAA, who demanded an additional $20k for the performance.

The Roosevelt decided to cough up the extra dough since they’d already sold tickets, but since Thugger broke the original deal, they’re suing to get back their $42.5K deposit and the extra $20K.
