Rapper G Herbo is being sued by a promoter from Pennsylvania for a concert which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, who claims the rapper won't return the large deposit made to book his appearance.

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, a promoter is suing G Herbo claiming on March 9, 2020, they stuck a deal with the rapper to perform at 'XL Live' a venue in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

In the lawsuit, they claim the original agreement "included paying the rapper a total of $32,500 to perform." At the time, it was agreed 50% was to be paid upfront as a deposit, "and the remaining 50% to be paid on the day of the performance."

According to the documents, "The agreement stated that Herbo's 'obligation to perform' would be excused in the event of Act of God." The promoter claims they paid $17,500 as a deposit shortly after they signed the agreement.

As you know, in the coming weeks the country fell into one of the work epidemics in history, shutting down most public gathering -- including concerts.

At some point, Herbo's team advised the promoter that the 'Performance would not go ahead due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.'

Herbo's lawyer sent a letter to the promoter, saying, "Due to the worldwide epidemic of COVID-19, Arist is unable to perform, make appearances or anything of the like. With the uncertainty of the current epidemic, Artis has not been able to confirm a reschedule date or any communications that would provide for a confirmed rescheduled date for him to perform in conjunction with any agreement with (promoter.)

In the letter, they claimed due to a part of the agreement, "Company's and Artist's obligation to perform hereunder shall be excused if Company and/or Artist is unable to perform as the result of ... other occurrences of a similar nature not reasonable with Artist's or Company's control (COVID-19). As such, G Herbo Touring, LLC is allowed to keep the deposit made to artist by (promoter) of sixteen thousand two hundred and fifty dollars ($16,250.00) regardless of Artist's failure to perform.

After the cancellation, according to the lawsuit, the promoter asked for a refund of the deposit but was told they would not be returning it.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Courts, and the case is ongoing.

Herbo made headlines earlier this week, for positive work he is doing in the community, after he launched his 'Swervin' Through Stress' Dream Team Therapy Fund' which will provide 12 weeks of free therapy sessions to Black youth nationwide between the ages of 18-25.

According to reports, the "initiative also includes a hotline that will be monitored by professionals provided by NAMI, while InnoPsych will help match patients with adequate therapists."

Herbo has been very open about his struggles with anxiety and how it has impacted his life. He's also been vocal about seeking help and his personal experience with therapy.
