Nas' Attorney Files Motion to Have $10 Million Lawsuit Thrown Out

Nas' lawyer files response to kidnap victim's claims.

Published May 3, 2013

A lawyer for Nas wants the $10 million lawsuit brought against the rapper thrown out. On Monday (April 29), attorney Jonathan Davis filed a response to promoter Patrick Allocco's claims that Nas is financially responsible for a botched New Year's Eve show in early 2012, which resulted in an alleged kidnapping.

Allocco and his son were captured and detained in Angola for 49 days after the Queens MC pulled out of the gig at the last minute. The Allgood Entertainment CEO blames Nas for the calamity, but Davis argues that Allocco's faulty business moves are the real issue.

According to Davis, Nas nixed the performance because Allocco didn't pay up on time or make proper arrangements for his entry into the African country. Furthermore, he is asking the judge to dismiss the suit because Allocco promised not to take legal action once Nas returned the $300,000 he was paid for the show.

Aside from losing money, Allocco claims the ordeal caused his home to go into foreclosure. His attorney has yet to file a rebuttal to Davis' motion.
