Promoter Claims Singer Lloyd Going Broke, Has a Drug Problem [Details]

Rucuss staffMay 13, 2013

Singer Lloyd is known worldwide as the high-pitched voice singer with curly hair and a big smile.

Lloyd’s hit songs include, Get It Shawty, You ft. Lil Wayne and “Cupid ft. Awesome Jones. Despite his success, he’s been out of the spotlight for a while. But that hasn’t stopped him from booking shows.

Lloyd has performed at many small venues, but after failing to show up to a concert at Bill Aylor Sr. Memorial RiverStage in San Angelo, Texas on April 18, one promoter is out for blood. The promoter alleges Lloyd missed the show and failed to pay back $8,000 advance. He also alleges Lloyd is on drugs.

HipHopGossipSite reports:

I am the promoter this article is about…..

“On Saturday, April 20th, Lloyd was scheduled to appear at a concert in San Angelo, TX. He was given $8,000 to perform. On Thursday the 18th, his people called to inform the promoters that Lloyd was stuck in Australia and was unable to return on time. Lloyd’s management team assured the promoter that per their contract, the $8,000 would be returned in full once Lloyd returned to the states that Monday. Monday came and no word from Lloyd or his team.Henry “Noonie” Lee, who has executive production credits with Ciara and Cherish, is currently managing Lloyd. He was the point of contact for all contract negotiations. Henry called the promoter to inform him that he would be getting paid back as per the contract, but that Lloyd did not have the money.

Henry says that Lloyd is broke and all of his accounts are frozen. He didn’t go into explanation as to why the accounts are frozen, but said that Lloyd owes money for other missed shows and law suits and this is just another on top of it. Henry also mentioned that Lloyd has a bad drug problem and that he “wished it was as simple as just weed.” Since April 20th, only half of the money has been returned. Henry had his sister pay the $4,000 and insists that he will do whatever he can to repay the entire amount because Lloyd just doesn’t have it. Everybody on Lloyd’s team can’t be broke. Something is wrong with that.”
This doesn’t sound far fetched considering Lloyd’s past legal troubles.

The R&B singer was sued by his former manager, Joyce Irby, for breach of contract. The two sides reached a settlement which called for Lloyd to fork over $100,000 and required Lloyd to help Irby find a job. That was in 2010. In 2012, Irby sued Lloyd AGAIN for failing to uphold his end of the settlement. Irby claimed Lloyd has only paid $20,000 and failed to find her another job. Sounds a lot like what’s going on now. The drug rumors aren’t new either, but to come from your managers mouth? Damn, Lloyd! Who knew you had it this rough?

It’s unclear if the allegations are true but Lloyd was scheduled to perform at the Ninth annual Big Sid Birthday Bash and Concert with Trina and Lil Scrappy.
