Texas Man Said G Town Entertainment Promised To Deliver Drake
Drake is at the center of a $300k legal battle between a Texas man and a booking agency after the man claimed the company conned him out of six figures when it promised – but failed to deliver – a Drake performance.
Jaime Sandoval sued Wesley Powell and his music management and booking agency G Town Entertainment, alleging the company claimed it could get Drake to perform at a El Paso concert, but knew they could never book him.
From March to April 2016, Sandoval explains he had numerous conversations with Powell about hiring Drake to give one live concert in El Paso, Texas. Powell claimed he was experienced in arranging live performances by big name artists, Sandoval said.
Sandoval agreed to pay $400,000 for the show and pay for Drake’s travel pay accommodations.
Sandoval signed the letter that Powell presented him and deposited $100,000 in a bank account held by G Town Entertainment.
Sandoval said Powell then started playing games and changing the agreement numerous times – even though he never planned to follow through and obtain Drake for a show in El Paso.
The man contends that the G Town Entertainment knew they couldn’t book Drake and conned him. He is demanding $300,000 in damages along with attorney fees.
