Ja Rule Hit with Staggering Lawsuit


Over the weekend rapper Ja Rule apologized for his disastrous attempt at putting on an upscale music festival in the Bahamas [click here if you missed that].

Now its going to cost him...

According to reports high powered attorney Mark Geragos just filed a $100 million class action lawsuit on behalf of all the rich kids who got scammed out of their money.

Fyre Festival, Ja Rul and Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland are all named in the suit.

Keep ya head up son. You need to start putting out some music to pay this debt off.

Black Folks, here's a lesson: Never let someone have you front ANYTHING until you know what kind of liability is involved. Seems like they intentionally used him as the front person, and when things went wrong all we heard was "organized by Ja Rule."

They had his azz showing up for champagne toasts and shizz. Read the nymag.com article; He was just so happy to be down with them he didn't realize he was being used. The whole thing was a damn joke. He was the idiot front person/Fall guy because they knew it was going to fail.

Anytime your name and image is being brought into any business arrangements, it's best to know all the ins and outs about what you're getting yourself into. JaRule should've brought all the information to his Lawyers to dissect the contract word for word, so that something like this could not be possible. I seriously doubt he has $100 million he could produce or/and if so, this probably leave him poor. Another thing someone said here was that he needs to go make some music to help him pay this off. But JaRule hasn't been in the game in a minute and music has changed a lot since he was last on the scene. Maybe this is why Ja blindly jumped at the chance to make some easy money. Now instead of receiving a large paycheck he now has to make a check payable to the rich kids and anyone else that has a case against him. Big turtle looking dummy!

THIS!!!! Wow!!!! Ja Rule!!! Hope he's finds a legal way so how so he won't get hit so hard in this, like a defence that he was possibly defrauded too!

1:33 is totally correct; Where were Ja's lawyers??? N*ggas is out toasting on the beach (I read the article too) and it looked like a war zone. He didn't see this was a set up?

lawyers are expensive, VERY VERY EXPENSIVE. ENTERTAINMENT ATTORNEYS EVEN MORE.

Ask Jay and Bey, had this been a success this would have made JA, a legitimate businessman instead of an aging rapper, way past his prime to be on anybodys stage.

He gambled and lost out big time, ya win sum ya loose sum. JA doesnt have the funding or label backing and is flying by the seat of his pants trying to keep money coming in the tough business of entertainment especially for older black entertainers, no longer hot.

Ja is going to need to sue the organizers and founders, hopefully he will be able to find an attorney who will take this case with no upfront cost

I feel bad for Ja.

The simple problem for him is that he apologized publicly.

There is an insurance policy somewhere to cover mishaps like this, hope they got enough coverage.

3:28 - Uh oh, it looks like the organizers may not have purchased ANY coverage:
