Last year, the former manager of Chance the Rapper, Pat Corcoran (aka Pat the Producer), sued Chance for contract violation. Artist has now responded to the case, filing motions to dismiss the bulk of Corcoran’s allegations. In fact, Chance has claps back with new case, arguing that former producer is the one who broke the arrangement.
Mr. Corcoran has been paid in full under his management services contract with Mr. Bennett. Yet he chose to file a groundless and insulting lawsuit that ignores his own improper self-dealing and incompetence. Mr. Bennett has moved to dismiss the majority of that meritless lawsuit, and filed his own lawsuit to remedy the harm that Mr. Corcoran caused through his breaches of duty. Mr. Bennett trusts the legal system to reveal the truth of the parties’ relationship in due course.- Lawyer for Chance the Rapper.
Chance is suing for more than $3 million, citing violation of fiduciary responsibility, tortious interference with future economic gain, and breach of contract. Rapper’s latest complaint is different from Corcoran’s and not a similar countersuit. former manager sued three of Chance’s firms, while Chicago born singer sued him individually as a person.
