*T.I. was supposed to perform at a graduation party in South Florida next month, but promoters cancelled his appearance following Wednesday’s deadly shooting at his NYC concert, and are now requesting a full refund of their upfront payment.
According to TMZ, Tip was scheduled for a June 11 graduation event that includes multiple high schools. The contract was signed and promoters had sent him $55,000 to retain his services.
But once the shootout occurred, promoters sent out a legal notice saying, due to the shooting, “the quality of the Talents services is not satisfactory to our Client.” They pointed out that the event was marketed “as a safe environment for the students.”
So far, no word on whether T.I. plans to return the money.
He has, however, taken to Instagram to offer “condolences to the family that suffered the loss.” He added, “My prayers are with all those injured. Respectfully, Tip.”
