Over the weekend, it was reported that Chance The Rapper had a lawsuit filed against him by his former manager, Pat Corcoran.
Corcoran is suing Chance for $3 million and states that while Chance was his client, he ignored professional advice, blamed him for the mixed responses of the 2019 album, ‘The Big Day’, and for refusing to pay commissions that are owed.
Chance’s legal team has issued an official statement about these claims. “Mr. Corcoran has filed a suit for allegedly unpaid commissions. In fact, Mr. Corcoran has been paid all of the commissions to which he is legally entitled. Most of the complaint consists of self-serving and fabricated allegations that are wholly unrelated to Mr. Corcoran’s claim for commissions and were plainly included in a calculated attempt to seek attention.” It continues, “Those allegations are wholly without merit, are grossly offensive and we will respond to them within the context of the litigation.”
