A Montgomery, Alabama concert promoter has filed a lawsuit against Plies for failing to perform at his venue earlier this month.

Patrick Monfiston of P Entertainment Promotions filed the suit in Circuit Court on Monday claiming Plies was a no-show for a July 8th concert. He also claimed the rapper made disparaging comments about him on a local radio station.
