Chief Keef has been ordered to pay damages of almost a quarter of a million dollars to Washington DC-based promoter Team Major over a performance in London which he failed to turn up for last year.

The rapper was due to play at IndigO2 in the O2 dome complex on 29 Dec 2012, but failed to emerge on the day and never gave any reason for his absence. Possibly he was still too full of Christmas turkey. Team Major sued to get back the advance it had paid and for lost earnings, with damages totalling $75,000.

According to TMZ, Chief Keef never responded to the lawsuit, and so a judge has ruled that he should pay $230,019 to Team Major, covering the advance, lost earnings and harm to the promoter’s reputation.
