The My House star was slated to appear at a fundraiser for the charity City Project Gala at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles following the Grammy Awards on 15 February (16), but organisers of the event claim he failed to show up, and instead sent 23 members of his entourage.

As a result, bosses at the organisation have filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the star in Los Angeles Superior Court.

In the legal documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the charity's bosses claim Flo Rida's posse were "loud" and "obnoxious" and physically assaulted other guests.

In addition, organisers claim they lost revenue on an auction, which included backstage passes to various concerts, exclusive pool cabanas, and Playboy Mansion parking passes, valued at $390,000 (£243,750).

Flo Rida wasn't the only star who was not present at the event - Dr. Dre and his Aftermath record label partners were originally named as defendants in the lawsuit, but a spokesperson for the hip-hop mogul says he was voluntarily dismissed shortly after the case was filed, because neither Dre nor Aftermath were named in any contract with the City Project Gala.

However, Flo Rida and Dre's business manager, Casey Thomas, and Interscope executive Larry Khan were listed in the lawsuit.

City Project Gala bosses are seeking the $390,000 they claim they lost out on due to Flo Rida's no-show.
