Ne-Yo ordered to pay promoter for no show

R&B singer Ne-Yo and his booking agent were recently ordered by a Maryland judge to pay promoter Kenyohn Clark in excess of $156,000 because Ne-Yo did not show up for a 2008 New Year’s Eve gig.

A deposit of $95,000 was paid to Ne-Yo for the show.

Court documents show Ne-Yo testified at trial that he knew in his “heart of hearts” that the deposit should have been returned.

Ne-Yo’s promoter Mike Esterman is based in Maryland.

One thing you do not want to do especially on New Year’s Eve is to promise paying clients that a R&B star such as Ne-Yo will be the featured act and the featured act not show up.  I am sure the beginning of 2009 was not a great way to the new year for Kenyohn Clark.

Attorney for Clark said after the no-show his client was “basically public enemy No. 1” and his client had to leave the entertainment business and pursue work as a military contractor.
