Timbaland sued by Australian promoter

WENN

An Australian promoter is suing hitmaker Timbaland for allegedly backing out of a series of gigs Down Under. Bosses at Showtime, the promoter, claim they paid Timbaland $500,000 up front when he agreed to play the gigs in 2008. But then Timbaland postponed the shows a month before they were due to take place, according to the lawsuit.

Showtime alleges Timbaland then booked a series of shows in Finland on the same dates as his proposed rescheduled tour. They further allege Timbaland still demanded his remaining $500,000, which Showtime refused to pay. Showtime is now suing to get back the money they did pay him, plus damages, reports TMZ.com.

Timbaland  wants "money for nothing"? This guy has NO honor. What a dirt bag.
