A$AP Rocky Sued by Former Manager

Published August 13, 2015

A$AP Rockys former manager filed a lawsuit claiming the Harlem rapper owes him almost $850,000 in backpay, Bossip reports. Eugene "Geno" Sims says that he began working with Rocky in 2011, negotiating contracts for publishing, music production and public relations.

According to his complaint, Sims worked with Rocky for two years and was to receive a monthly fee, in addition to 15 percent of Rocky’s gross income for locking in deals with the likes of adidas and Samsung.


Sims estimates that Rocky owes $300,000 in monthly pay and $500,000 in commission. Furthermore, he accuses Rocky of failing to provide any document on the money he earned, as well as financial reports every month.

Due to his celebrity, Rocky reportedly asked that his financial and career details remain private, blasting Sims for putting his home address in the legal documents.

Rocky has yet to release a public statement regarding the lawsuit.
