EXCLUSIVE: Birdman – Music Mogul Blows Off Legal Battle Over Tupac Art, Judge Orders Him to Appear in Court or He Will Be Found in Contempt
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Birdman has blown off yet another legal battle … this time filed by an artist who he agreed to pay $10k for two original pieces only to screw her over on the bill and now a Florida judge has ordered the music mogul to show up to court or he will be found in contempt.
A well-known contemporary artist named Leonor Anthony sued Birdman for screwing her out of $10k.
She explained the music mogul entered into a deal with her to purchase 2 original art works … one entitled “Tupac” and the other “Song of Faith and Flight” story of Birdman. He agreed to pay $10k for both pieces. She delivered both pieces to his Florida mansion months ago but he has refused to pay up.
Recently, the judge came back and entered a default judgement against Birdman in the amount of $10,000 for the unpaid balance, plus $407.74 in interest for a grant total of $10,407.75.
Earlier this month, the judge signed an order demanding Birdman explain why he should not be held in contempt for not turning over financial documents to the artist including his paystubs, bank account statements, all deeds and titled for property owned and his tax returns.
The rapper has been ordered to show up in court to explain himself in May and if he doesn’t the judge could find him in contempt for blowing off the court order.
