Rick Ross

Lawsuit: Rapper Stiffed Us

Where's The Loyalty?

0425_rick_ross_getty_article2Rick Ross is struggling with business relationships lately -- first he's dumped by Reebok ... now a Florida tour booker says the rapper stiffed them ... and after YEARS of working together.

Total Access Talent filed a lawsuit in a Miami federal court this week ... saying Rick Ross Touring hired it to book and organize a month's worth of Florida dates starting last November ... but never paid the 10% commission.

Which is really weird ... because Total Access says it's been booking Rick's tours since 2004 without incident. The lawsuit says they were so comfortable doing business ... always been paid ... that they arranged the tour with a verbal agreement.

But Total Access says this time, Ross' camp did an end-around after the company already set up opening acts (Meek Mill, Machine Gun Kelly, Wale, to name-drop a few), arranged dates, prepared contracts ... the works.

Total Access says Ross owes at least $171,000 in commissions. He couldn't be reached for comment.

Times are a little tighter for Rick these days ... as TMZ first reported, he stands to lose between $3 million and $5 million after Reebok ripped up his endorsement deal after his date-rape lyrics kicked up a storm.

You jerk. You think you can mock taking advantage of women, but you are not smart enough to realize that women are in power positions now. Big mistake.

He's proof that not all pigs are pink. He has to put pills in a woman's drink in order to have sex with her. Sick motherfvcker. Any woman that would allow a man to do this to her has got to be sick too. Women should boycott his music.

Ok so ppl r outraged by his lyrics so y r most of u small minded making comments about his weight? Children tease ppl for being fat. I am a rape victim myself yet this man's distastefull choice in lyrics does not affect me mentally or emotionally. Damn calm down.
