Young Thug Being Sued For $150,000

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Young Thug has been sued for $150,000 over a concert scheduled for this summer.

Young Thug Sued For Not Returning Money:

Young Thug was scheduled to perform at State Farm Arena on June 18th. But was unable to do so due to his incarceration.

Thug was reportedly set to receive $300,000 for a 45-minute set at the concert. Half of which had already been paid up front, with the rest due later.

A-1 Concert Entertainment, however, claims that the advance of $150,000 has not been returned. Refunds will be issued by YSL Touring, a representative said.

“Due to his arrest and the nature of the felony criminal charges against Williams, it was immediately apparent in May 2022 that he would not be able to perform as required in the agreement,” the filing said. “To date, A-1 Concert has not received any reimbursement of the $150,000 owed to it.”

Thug Still In Prison:

An indictment accusing YSL of being a “criminal street gang” included Young Thug and 27 others who were arrested in May in connection with a 56-count racketeering indictment. According to the charges against him, he participated in criminal street gang activity. Including conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

Three months later, Thug was charged with a new gang charge, a new drug charge, and gun possession during the commission of a felony as part of a second indictment in the YSL RICO case.

Authorities seized weapons and drugs from Young Thugs Atlanta home during his arrest in May, leading to these latest charges. It is likely that Young Thug will remain in jail until his trial in January 2023, along with Gunna.
