The organizers of the popular “Chug It” party series have not forgotten about the Grammy-nominated Dancehall Queen Spice, and the squabble they had, they have released an announcement noting that they are moving forward with a lawsuit against the entertainer.
The issue started on the 5th of September at the Miami, Florida staging of the event where Spice was supposed to perform but was said by the promoters to not have shown up, and as such is being requested by them to refund the amount she was paid before showtime.
From the Dancehall Queen’s side, however, it is still no refund and no apology, as her attorney Ayisha Robb was very confident in stating that if a lawsuit is what “Chug It” needs to move forward they will just have to do that and they will defend it in court since she disagrees with the event’s team statements about the refund situation, making it clear that it is not Spice’s instructions.
By way of their American Attorney Alan S. Clarke, who works with Greenspoon Marder LLP, Spice will need to answer to claims of tortious interference with contract, breach of contract, significant damages for defamation, and other accusations.
According to the main man Andrew “French” Wright of “Chug It”, the female entertainer is being asked to refund an amount of USD 38,773.42 paid to her before the time she was booked to perform at the event.
On the other hand, however, Spice spoke out against ” Chug It” when the issue was made public stating that the organizers of the event had already breached the contract on their side, by not properly fulfilling it.
It seems like the organizers of the event are not concerning themselves with Spice’s claims, instead what they did is to have gotten an expert financial advisor to determine the level of damages that have been brought to their brand and partners in association with them as a result of the “So Mi Like It” artiste’s actions since the feud spiralled. These actions that the female deejay allegedly carried out on her social media page are being described by “Chug It” to be irresponsible.
The lawsuit was filed in a Florida Court and while Spice is being defended by Ayisha Robb, she also has American Attorney Darrell Thompson on her team.
