The concert promoter who says he was taken hostage at gunpoint and held for ransom all because Nas was a no-show for a gig is now suing the rapper for $10MILLION.
TMZ first reported, Patrick Allocco says he was
kidnapped in December 2011 in Angola because Nas failed to show up for a New Year’s Eve concert after taking a $300,000 pay day.
Allocco says he was held as ransom by Angolan
promoters and their “henchmen” because they
wanted their cash back. He was finally released in February 2012.
According to a new federal lawsuit filed Friday, Allocco wants the rapper to pay for what happened to him. Specifically, he claims he was was held captive for 50 days — during which time he says he was beaten and threatened constantly.
Allocco is suing Nas for $10 million, claiming he suffered psychologically, physically and financially. He claims that while stuck in Angola, he was unable to business and as a result lost his home and his company.
