Flo Rida To Compensate Aussie Promoter

The New South Wales District Court ordered Flo Rida April 13 to pay more than $80,000 in compensation to the promoter of the Fat As Butter festival near Sydney, Australia.

Brent Lean of Mothership Music sued for $55,000 in up-front performance fees paid to the rapper and $25,000 in damages.

Flo Rida was to headline the festival last October.

Two hours before his set, Lean was advised he was not coming – even though transportation was waiting for him at his Sydney hotel.

If the U.S. rapper does not pay the $80,000, his assets in Australia will be frozen, Judge Judith Gibson said.
