Jayceon Taylor, Fifth Amendment Entertainment and Cash Jones are being sued by local promoters, Dream Team Entertainment. Taylor known as “The Game” to his fans is a successful rapper and reality show star. The complaint was filed on October 17th in the U.S. District Court Western District of Kentucky Louisville Division. The complaint says Dream Team is requesting $75,000 in which $35,000 was given to him to secure the engagement. According to the suit Dream Team sent a bank wired transfer of those funds.

The concert was scheduled for May 4, 2014 and on or around May 2nd, just two days prior to the event Cash Jones who served as The Game’s agent did not like the lineup of the show.
