Faith Evans Sued By Atlanta Promoter

Atlanta promoter Jeremy Hill and his Middle Georgia Entertainment Group have filed a lawsuit against Faith Evans, claiming the singer is in breach of contract after agreeing to perform at the city’s  Sept. 10, then accepting Live Nation’s offer to join the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, which arrives two days earlier at the city’s

Hill’s contract with Evans has standard radius and protection clauses, requiring the singer to not perform within 100 miles of Wolf Creek Amphitheatre for six months – March 10 to Sept. 10, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Court documents claim Evans was paid an advance of $17,500 in December for the Wolf Creek appearance. Hill is seeking $100,000 for special damages he has suffered, including loss of reputation and goodwill among his clients, the Journal-Constitution says.

The lawsuit claims Live Nation threatened to pull Evans from the Bad Boy tour if she honored her agreement with Hill rather than play the tour’s stop in Miami that night.

Live Nation had no comment.

The tour includes Puff DaddyLil KimMario Winans and . The AJC noted that, in May, it received a notice from the Wolf Creek shed to pull Evans’ and 112’s names from any adverts for the Bad Boy tour because they were being “falsely advertised.”
