Spice Claims To Be Set Up By ‘Chug It’ Promoter And Intends To Sue

Written by: Lesandra Scott

In the words of Spice, “Dem set me up I do not know the reason why”

Spice on Sunday night announced on her Instagram Live that she is bent on suing Chug It promoter, Andrew “French” Wright.  According to Spice who was set to perform at the Miami event on Sunday, September 5th: “CHUG IT WAS A SCAM”. What was supposed to be a vibes-cyah-done Labor Day Weekend, swiftly turned into fingers being pointed between the Chug It camp and Spice’s. Wright is laying claim to the fact that he paid Spice everything she was owed, however, Spice said nothing so (that wasn’t true). As per an email sent from her own account addressed to Wright, she asked for her “full balance per diem, and full reimbursement”.  Therefore, standing firmly in her truth, she’s suing him for defamation of character. Spice, seeing that as Chug It was gearing up to sue her and claim they paid her, according to Grace “Spice” Hamilton, “a sue fi sue”.

In detailing the events which brought her to this point, from an email sent from Spice’s own account, she said: “First my people went to [the] airport in Jamaica and flights were canceled because of bank card issue resulting [in] me buying my own flight to come to Miami. Then my dancer flight was canceled today again and when I land here there was no car outside to pick me up, I had to call my own car. “ After waiting at the airport for close to an hour, the grim reality hit her: she’d have to order a Lyft. Then, having no hotel room being booked by French, Spice’s manager Elsie said that Spice’s card had to be put down for the hotel.  From the airline canceling the tickets due to the “fake credit cards”, not being picked up from the airport and with no hotel accommodations made, Spice said, “Feels like they didn’t plan for her to perform, no itinerary, nothing”.

Though, to be honest, Spice is claiming that even before she arrived in Miami the promoter was in breach of contract.  To be noted is that during the Live, she kept on saying very regrettably, “Me shoulda follow me mind”.  Acknowledging that yes, they can sue her, she said “Yes allyuh can sue me, but allyuh cyan sue me and win”, why? The thing is, according to Spice, “Me have paper receipt, me have human receipt, me have lyft receipt, me have hotel receipt”. As if to throw salt on the already smarting wound, “Their page was even posting that my performance was 9pm when they knew their permit time ended 9pm ? Unu set me up deliberately to put the blame on me”.

Spice's evidence

In keeping as transparent as possible, during the live, Spice consulted with her team who sat nearby and helped her to show her viewers the proof, and they made camera appearances when asked certain things on the matter.  These ladies, including her business manager Elsie, are who she’s referring to as her human receipts.  She casually said at different intervals that, “All the human receipts go come a court”. The thing Spice is torn up about is the fact that the show was sold-out and her fans were robbed both financially and from getting to see her. Plus the fact that she’s never in her 20-year career missed a show. Currently, she’s pleading with the promoters to give her fans back their money.

While Spice’s Live was going on, a photo on the main Instagram profile of Chug It issued a photo with the caption: “Please be assured that Chug It paid @SpiceOfficial in full and she will confirm this. We have always shown love and respect to @SpiceOfficial on every level which has translated in our promotion of this staging. Therefore we will not be responding to any more of Spice’s IG lives relating to the damages that are now being inflicted to the brand. We again apologize to our patrons as this was not the experience we wanted to give you.”

Spice’s Live which lasted for almost 40 minutes was watched by over 24, 000 viewers, and at the end, she said supposedly to the Chug It camp, “Lawyers and I and my receipts are waiting. All the recordings, all the airport receipts… Take care, walk good.”
