Nas is facing a $10 million suit over an apparent no show at a concert gig in Angola that resulted into an alleged kidnapping. TMZ reports that Patrick Allocco claims he was kidnapped in December 2011 after Nas failed to show up for a New Year’s Eve concert despite taking the $300,000 fee. Allocco says he was held ransom by Angolan promoters because they wanted their money back.
He wasn’t released until February 2012.
More from TMZ on the suit:
According to a new federal lawsuit filed Friday, Allocco wants the rapper to pay for what happened to him. Specifically, he claims he was held captive for 50 days — during which time he says he was beaten and threatened constantly.
Allocco is suing Nas for $10 million, claiming he suffered psychologically, physically and financially. He claims that while stuck in Angola, he was unable to do business … and as a result lost his home and his company.
