*Rick Ross and several other rappers have been busy ducking from process servers who have been trying to slap them with court papers for the past six months.
The rapper was named alongside Meek Mill, Wale and Omarion amid accusations they pulled out of a 2012 gig at London’s Wembley Arena after promoters at Executive Decision gave them a huge advance of their performance fees and covered other costs, amounting to $93,281.26.
Company boss Christian Ezechie filed his complaint in New York federal court in October, but now claims that “despite numerous and diligent attempts” he has been “unable to locate the defendants.”
Ezechie says a registered address for Rick Ross Touring in his hometown of Miami, Florida turned out to be bogus, while a process server who attempted to reach him at his Miami home was told by one of the star’s associates that he had no idea how to contact the rapper.
Servers have also tried to reach Ross at his concerts, but according to Ezechie, they are “hesitant to serve him while he is surrounded by security guards.”
However, the plaintiff may not have to track Ross down in person – a judge ruled last week that if he is unable to formally serve the defendants with papers before a hearing on June 4, Ezechie can seek permission to notify the stars of the legal action via an alternative route, such as posting a message in a newspaper, according to the New York Post.
