Busta Rhymes is a facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit for allegedly telling a hot lie to get out of a performance.
According to the lawsuit, Bussa Buss claimed he had to appear in court on the day of the scheduled performance to answer to an arrest warrant for child support.
The only problem was…the performance was on a Saturday. Ain’t no courts open, Busta!!

In the state civil-court lawsuit filed Friday, promotions company 800 Entertainment says it booked the rapper, whose real name is Trevor Smith, to perform at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Somerset, NJ, on April 21.
The company says it agreed to pay the “Touch It” artist $17,000 to perform just two to three verses from three of his songs.
But two weeks before the scheduled appearance, Busta Rhymes said he “couldn’t make the event because he had to be in court that day to answer a child-support warrant,” according to the lawsuit, which is seeking $2.1 million in damages.
But, that’s not all…Busta posted a flyer on IG promoting a performance at a different club on the same Saturday night he allegedly had to appear in court.
