The “Year of the Gentleman Tour” – featuring Ne-Yo, Musiq Soulchild and Jazmine Sullivan – made a stop in Miami last night. Continue reading to see more pics of Ne-Yo putting on a great show and to read about him facing a lawsuit for not showing up to a New Years Eve event he was scheduled to host.
Ne-Yo was supposed to play host for a party up in Washington, D.C. Washington (the state) at Bellevue on New Year’s Eve but unfortunately for the party planners, the R&B singer didn’t show up causing for them to nix the entire show.
According to a lawsuit filed last week in Maryland, Wet Entertainment booked Ne-Yo for the NYE gig and paid him $95,000 up front. The organizers claim they made all sorts of arrangements for the show — promotion, travel, hotel, etc.
They claim Ne-Yo’s people made it to Washington — but no Ne-Yo. The show was 86’d. Wet is suing Ne-Yo and the booking company that made the deal for the $95K plus more than $1 mil in damages.
The booking company had no comment. A call to Ne-Yo’s agent was not returned.
