Lil Wayne’s reps are shooting down the notion that he missed the Saturday SummerFall concert in Curacao due to seizures.
Curacao , which lies off the coast of Venezuela, was supposed to feature French Montana, Fat Joe, Jeremih, Yo Gotti, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Lil Wayne. However, Wayne backed out of the date.
Wayne’s team is reportedly stating that a “breach of contract” is the cause of the sudden cancellation, not seizures as previously reported.
Curaçao Color Events denied any wrongdoing on their side.
“Contrary to recent reports, Color Events met all contractual obligations for Lil Wayne to perform at the SummerFall concert tonight. We are still investigating the reason for the last-minute cancellation and have nothing further to comment on except that although we are disappointed Lil Wayne will not be performing, we excited about the lineup of artists who will be performing tonight.”
Whether or not Wayne had an ailment is to be determined, but he has a storied history with seizures. The rap star has had several instances, including this year.
