City Project Gala has sued Dr. Dre, Flo Rida after they didn’t show up for the Hollywood Charity party which held at the Playboy Mansion following the Feb. 15 Grammy Awards.
According to a suit filed on March 25, City Project Gala is seeking $390,000 for breach of contract after the rappers failed to show up to a black tie event at the Playboy Mansion and sent 23 members of their “loud, obnoxious” posse instead.
Stars who showed up for the event include; Richard Branson, Diddy, Buzz Aldrin and Jane Seymour and benefited Community Inspiring Today’s Youth, among other charities. Part of the VIP deal, according to the suit, filed March 25 in L.A. Superior Court, included two cabanas at $25,000 each, two Playboy Mansion parking passes at $5,000 each and 33 backstage passes at $10,000 each.
City Gala says Dre and Flo Rida didn’t show, but their entourages did, and they allegedly were “loud, obnoxious … and physically assaulting other guests”, plus organizers lost revenue they would have made had they sold the perks.
Also named in the suit is Casey Thomas, a business manager for Dr. Dre and Flo Rida, and Larry Khan, an executive at Interscope. Event staffers learned Dre was a world away from the mansion that night, as he was photographed the next morning “standing on the Great Wall of China in China, far from Holmby Hills, the site of the event.”
A lawyer for Dre says a request for dismissal has been filed as Dre and Aftermath Entertainment do not appear on the contracts.
