Timbaland Sues Oz Promoter

Timbaland filed suit in New York federal court against Australian promoter Showtime Touring Group over a canceled tour.

His July tour was delayed to August, then canceled at the last moment.

The suit accuses Brisbane-based Showtime of not making required payments (his fee was $1.26 million for five shows), publishing misleading information about the show, and arranging sponsorships and commercial tie-ins without his consent, according to the Herland Sun.

Showtime previously blamed Timbaland and his manager for “lack of contact.”
