Platinum-selling hitmaker Flo Rida undoubtedly has a good feeling about his recent lawsuit victory against energy drink giant Celsius ... a jury awarded him $82 million in damages!!! That's a lotta fizz.
Flo had originally claimed he was owed around $30K for the contract breach but over the years, its name grew bigger -- and so did the profits!!!
He argued he helped Celsius become the giant it is today, starting all the way back in 2014 ... and the dispute centered around whether his deal with the company expired after it hit certain sales goals.
Little bit of "My house" playing in court. Flo Rida testifies promoted Celsius in the video. #FloRidavCelsius.@official_flo @CelsiusOfficial pic.twitter.com/b8ZedpKCHM— Cathy Russon (@cathyrusson) January 11, 2023 @cathyrusson
The "My House" rapper claimed the deal didn't expire and insisted his music helped launch the brand to big profits -- as evidenced by the now-viral moment where he was grooving to his own music in court!!!
Obviously, the jury agreed with Flo and decided he deserved to share in the company's success ... to the tune of $82 million.
Not shockingly, Flo and his legal team told 7News they're feeling fully vindicated ... and rich as hell! They didn't really say the rich part, but they should have.
