Rapper Bow Wow sued over unpaid limo hire bill
Rap star Bow Wow is facing a bill of $4,000 after a limo hire company took the music performer to court over an unpaid bill. This recent lawsuit marks the second time the 25-year-old rapper has been on the receiving end of a court order this year as Bow Wow was sued earlier in 2012 and ordered to pay $90,000 for a tour bus he’d hired but failed to pay for.
The most recent lawsuit saw a limousine rental company in Georgia take the rap star to court over after Bow Wow ran up a bill for transport hire with the company, but left without paying the firm the money he owed. After the rapper failed to turn up for the court appearance last week, it’s been reported that the judge issued a default judgement ordering Bow Wow, real name Shad Gregory Moss, to settle the bill totalling $4,000.
Sources close to the rapper, who has been performing professionally since the age of 13, say he’s attempting to get on top of his finances after a succession of bad business ventures. The rapper and actor first burst onto the music scene with his debut album, Beware the Dog, under the stage name Lil’ Bow Wow in 2000. He’s since dropped the “Lil’” and is now known simply as Bow Wow.
However it seems Bow Wow wasn’t going to let the recent lawsuit over the unpaid limo hire bill get him down, as he played a sell-out concert with Keri Hilson in Ghana as part of the Underrated World Tour last weekend.
