After being sued for canceling a planned performance during Super Bowl LII, Travis Scott is now filing a countersuit against local promoter PJAM.

PJAM originally sued Travis for bailing on his scheduled performance at Myth Live in Maplewood, Minnesota shortly after the birth of his daughter Stormi. The promoter claims that the Houston rapper canceled his appearance just hours before the show and has kept his $150,000 USD upfront pay, $10,000 USD for his booking agent and money received for a private jet.

While Travis’ countersuit against PJAM claims the promoter didn’t have enough money to cover the extra $50,000 USD owed to him for the show and that he was never given a travel itinerary making it impossible for him to make the Minnesota show and his Marquee Nightclub show in Las Vegas later that day. Additionally, Travis’ legal team is noting that PJAM leaked information to TMZ violating a confidentiality agreement that was signed.

According to Scott’s attorney, Howard King, the local promoter’s lawsuit is “an obvious effort to shake Travis down and avoid the consequences of their breaches. Instead of pursuing a misguided attempt to spin the narrative and salvage their tattered reputation, the responsible step would have been for PJAM to pay Travis the balance of his fee and move on to their next opportunity.”

King also revealed La Flame’s thoughts on the issue, “Travis apologizes to any fans who were duped by these promoters…into showing up at the canceled show even after the promoters failed to take the steps to get Travis there.”

Stay tuned as the story around the case develops. In other news, Travis Scott and Quavo recently released a visual for their track “Black & Chinese.”
