Australian concert promoters are at the end of their rope with Flo Rida.

Flo Rida has been served legal papers by Fat as Butter Music Festival promoters through Facebook, after failed attempts to serve him in person. In March, the NSW District Court in Australia imposed a freeze on assets that the rapper has in the country. Since Flo Rida has yet to respond, the court allowed the claim to be served to him via Facebook rather than in person, the Sydney Morning Herald.

“We’ve painted him into a corner, now we’re confident the matter is coming to a close,” said Brett Lean, who runs Australian festival promoter Mothership Music, to the Sydney Morning Herald. “All we’ve ever wanted is an explanation and our money back and an apology.”

Flo Rida, whose real name Tramar Dillard, received a $55,000 fee to perform at the Fat as Butter festival last October, but failed to show up, sparking a legal dispute. The promoters believe he’s in breach of his contract.

“We tried to serve him physically on several occasions when he was out here but he got wise to it pretty quickly,” Lean said. “We couldn’t get near him in the end because he was constantly surrounded by an entourage and security so we looked into ways of serving him via Facebook because he’s very active on social media.”

Flo-Rida has 28 days to respond.
