Travis Scott Sued by Lyor Cohen for $2 Million

While some worry that a balcony-jumping fan may sue Travis Scott, the rapper has another legal battle on his hands.

La Flame’s former manager Lyor Cohen and his LCAR Management firm claims that the Rodeo rapper signed a three-year deal with them in October 2014, granting them 15 percent of the money he makes in entertainment.

In legal documents, the company says that he owes them at least $2 million and that he’s only paid them $37,000 thus far, as per TMZ.

According to LCAR, Scott’s attorney responded to multiple inquiries by claiming that the management company was no longer needed. However, LCAR says their deal negates that.

Insiders in Scott’s camp feel as though LCAR was not managing him well. They say he left the company for a different one and they criticize Cohen — now the head of global music at YouTube — for filing the lawsuit.

Scott, who recently collaborated with Frank Ocean, SZA, and Drake, is currently on his “Birds Eye View Tour.” After that, he will join Kendrick Lamar and D.R.A.M. on “The DAMN. Tour.”
