Christian Ezechie claims his company, Executive Decision, paid nearly $200,000 for the show, and hasn’t been able to find Ross to serve him with papers, according to court documents obtained by the New York Post.

“Despite numerous and diligent attempts … we have been unable to locate the defendants,” the documents note, and “process servers are hesitant to serve him while he is surrounded by security guards” at concerts.

Ezechie told the paper he advanced Ross $100,000 in the leadup to the gig, plus about the same amount for other artists including Meek MillWale and . “It’s blatant robbery he’s doing, and he’s an artist worth $50 million,” he said.

The judge presiding over the case ruled in court that if Ross can’t be located before a June 4 hearing, Ezechie may file an “alternative service” motion that would allow him to post a notice in a newspaper, the Post reported.
