DJ Skribble

Vegas Club Shut Me Down And Shoved Me Out

EXCLUSIVE

DJ Skribble says his Vegas gig was torpedoed by vindictive club managers who refused to give him a microphone, telling him his act was fit for a toilet stall.

Skribble filed suit against Chateau Nightclub, claiming it reneged on a 1-year, $3,500 per gig deal.

Skribble says everything changed when the club hired new management.  He says the new guys tried to dump him as the house DJ ... driving customers away from his room, cancelling bottle service and even refusing to give him a microphone.

Skribble says they also cancelled his advertising and promotion ... and slandered him by telling customers he should "be put in the bathroom to play."

He says the club owes him $42K for the cancelled shows ... but he's suing for more than $1 million ... for breaking the contract and damaging his good name.

Oh boo fvcking hoo. A second rate DJ crying over managements decision to deep six his contract. In true cash grab form, let's sue for 100 times what I'm worth and hope something sticks amd I can make some extra cash the easy way. Loser.

It's doesn't matter if he sucks or not. A contract is a contract. That's what contracts are for duh. If there wasn't contracts everyone would be screwing everyone.

Mr. Sdribble, good luck with that whole idea. Those folks in Nevada have a whole new idea when it comes to dealing with people who visit their world. Whoever advised you on the approach you are taking should be terminated or removed from your Christmas card list.
Good Luck,

Seems like he's damaging his own name. If they paid out his contract he should just find another gig. This sounds like he got lucky with this job and is trying to milk it for all it's worth. If he is a good DJ with a following he should be able to find other work . Now it looks like he is hard up for work, and will possibly be a problem for future employers. He is blackballing himself with this lawsuit.
