Hip Hop Star and TV Show Judge, Cee Lo Green is in the news again for something shady! When I hear this stuff it makes me wonder how some people can be so blessed and in the best situations do some of this stuff. Then again it makes me think twice cuz when you got money the problems, lies and accusations come… Just ask Mendeecees Harris.

We’re hearing that Cierra Management Group has filed a lawsuit against Green and his team. In the lawsuit, Cierra sights that Cee Lo’s people approached them in November, 2011 with a proposition — doing a tour called “12 Days of Christmas.” Cierra would have had to front $100k per concert and it was too much money.

So, Cee Lo’s team went back and offered to slash XMAS in half and do 6 days at $100k each, but it was still too much for Cierra to agree to. Cierra was said to be offered this: 2 concerts for a total of $243,000 including expenses. Cierra agreed.

According to the suit, the concerts never took place and Cierra believes Cee Lo’s people never intended for them to take place. The suit claims it was all

“a scheme designed to finagle funding capital for concerts they knew would not manifest.”

Cee Lo is not accused of being part of the conspiracy — although his people certainly are — but he’s being sued for allegedly refusing to perform the 2 concerts.

Cierra wants a whopping $14.2 million.
