Rich The Kid’s ex-managers are demanding the court order the rapper pay them $1.6 million immediately.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the rapper’s former managers are tired of waiting for him to show up to court.

Earlier this year, Blueprint Artist Management sued Rich The Kid accusing him of owing them $3.5 million. They claim to have served him with the legal documents, but he has failed to show up to court.

In the newly filed docs, Blueprint Artist is asking the court to stop waiting for Rich The Kid and award them a default judgment in the amount of $1,617,958.

Back in February, Rich The Kid (real name: Dimitri Roger) was sued by his former management company, Blueprint Artist Management.

In the lawsuit, Blueprint Artist says the rapper signed with them in May 2017. Per the deal, he was to pay his manager 20% of his gross income.

The suit accused Rich The Kid of refusing to pay $960,000 in commission plus an additional $500,000 on a contract clause. Blueprint Artist claims to have “repeatedly demanded the payment of its long-overdue Commissions” but he refused to pay up.

They terminated their deal with the rapper in April 2019. They believe they are owed an additional $700,000 termination fee.

The suit states, “Paragraph 1 of the Termination Agreement provides that Roger shall pay Blueprint the sum of $700,000 according to the following schedule: $250,000 within 10 business days of the execution of the Termination Agreement; $200,000 on or before September 1, 2019; and $250,000 on or before November 1, 2019 (the “Settlement Payments”)”

The managers claim Rich The Kid promised to pay them a cut of the money owed after obtaining a loan from his new record label. The suit read,” In July 2019, roughly one month after he failed to timely pay the first of the three scheduled Settlement Payments, Roger told Blueprint that he was waiting for his new record company to loan him money with which to make the Settlement Payments.”

However, they accuse him of never paying a dime despite his countless promises. The lawsuit is seeking a total of $3.5 million in damages.
