Future Dropped From Drake Tour, Filing $1.5 Million Lawsuit [Details]
Rucuss staffOctober 15, 2013
Drake doesn’t appreciate it when artists make slick comments about him.
Especially, if that artist could possibly be touring with the Canadian rapper. Future found that out the hard way. Just days before the Would You Like a Tour? debuts, Drake allegedly kicked Future off his tour. Now Future is reportedly suing him for $1.5 million.
Page Six reports that Drake demanded Future be removed from his tour after he criticized Drake’s album Nothing Was the Same in an interview on Billboard.com.
Future was quoted by Billboard: “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.”
Future’s interview was later removed after his managers claimed that his quotes were off the record and taken out of context. However, Drake was so angry by the remarks that he immediately demanded Future be pulled from the tour.
“He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source told Page Six.
The end result was that Future was fired, but there were negotiations to bring him back late last week. But Future pulled out for good over the weekend after Drake demanded he make financial concessions.
Future, who was set to earn about $40,000 per show, is set to file a lawsuit this week against Drake for lost wages in the amount of $1.5 million.
A rep for Billboard told Page Six, “We regret that miscommunication surrounding Future’s recent visit, one that seemed clear to us was on the record, may have caused any trouble for the artist.”
According to Ashley Outrageous, Jhené Aiko, is rumored to be Future’s replacement. She joins Drake and Miguel on the 39-city Would You Like a Tour?, which kicks off Friday in Pittsburgh.
