Concert Promoter Suing Nas for $10 Million
TMZ reports a concert reporter, Patrick Allocco, who claims he was held for ransom because rapper Nas did not show up for a concert is now suing Nas for $10 million.
Allocco claims he was kidnapped in December 2011 in Angola because Nas failed to show up for a New Year’s Eve concert after taking a $300,000 pay day. Allocco said he was held as ransom by Angolan promoters and their “henchmen” because they wanted their money returned. He was allegedly released in February 2012.
The federal lawsuit was filed Friday. Allocco wants Nas to pay for what happened to him and that he was held captive for 50 days, where he was allegedly beaten and threatened constantly. Allocco says he suffered psychologically, physically and financially. He also says that while stuck in Angola, he was unable to do business, and as a result lost his home and his company.
Nas has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
