$6.6 Million Judgment Upheld Against Yo Gotti. Rapper Ordered to Pay Local Singer

Yo Gotti was in a Winston-Salem courtroom on Monday trying to get a judgment against him dismissed. Last month a judge awarded Michael Terry $2.2 million in damages after Gotti refused to sign off on a verse he did for Terry’s artists, Young Fletcher.

Terry said he paid Gotti $20,000 for the verse and that Gotti tried to lure Young Fletcher away from Terry by offering him $150,000.

Gotti, who didn’t respond to the original lawsuit, was ruled to have engaged in unfair and deceptive trade practices by the judge, and the award was upped to $6.6 million.

Gotti says he never received the paperwork about the lawsuit, however  Sgt. J.E. Gilbertson of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office says he served Gotti at a concert by handing the paperwork to one of his security personnel, however, Gotti’s lawyer argued that proper protocol would’ve been to serve Gotti’s manager. Gotti plans to appeal.

Do you think Gotti will win or lose the case?
