Rapper Snoop Dogg is at the center of a new breach of contract lawsuit between a concert promoter and bosses of a Los Angeles nightclub.
Executives at hotspot Exchange LA claim they negotiated a deal with Movement Management promoters to stage an appearance by the hip-hop superstar at the venue in June (12), and handed over $15,000 of the agreed $25,000 fee as a deposit.
However, Movement Management representatives later revealed Snoop Dogg had been double booked and could no longer make the 30 June (12) date due to tour commitments in Europe.
Exchange LA bosses asked for the return of their deposit but the management team has yet to respond to the request - and now the bosses are facing legal action.
Owners of the venue are suing Movement Management for the $15,000 refund and an additional $100,000 in punitive damages, according to TMZ.com.
Snoop Dogg is not believed to have been named in the legal papers.
