Remy Ma & Safaree Sued For Breach Of Concert Contract

Chicago, IL – Remy Ma and Safaree are being sued by The Circle Foundation for a breach of contract from a benefit concert the two agreed to perform at. The Foundation, who mentors Chicago youth, advises the deal signed was for the artists to perform at the fundraising show on April 21 at the Wintrust Arena, according to TMZ.

The Foundation alleges that their contracts explicitly state the Love & Hip Hop stars are unable to perform within 60 miles of the venue for 30 days prior to the concert. This practice is called a “performance exclusivity” clause which is common in agreements with promoters and artists. The purpose of the procedure is to ensure the concert remains exclusive or in high demand.

The claim alleges that the rappers agreed to the terms, with Remy receiving $35,000 and Safaree getting $7,000 for deposits. The issue arose when they both performed at other venues within the 30 days.

Remy had a show on April 8 in Chicago at the Black Women’s Expo; Safaree played in a suburb of Chicago at the Rockin’ Horse Saloon & Grill on April 14. Consequently, The Foundation asked for the deposits to be returned. Neither musician complied with the request.

The Circle Foundation is suing for the lost funds along with damages. The benefit concert was canceled due to the breach.

Eric Sanders, Remy’s attorney, tells TMZ that she is, “unaware of any purported legal action filed but, if such action is initiated she will respond accordingly.”

Remy Ma is currently dealing with another legal issue after she was accused of attacking her Love & Hip Hop: New York co-star Brittney Taylor. The revered lyricist was charged with third-degree assault.
