Back near the end of 2020, Chance the Rapper’s former manager Pat Corcoran, also known as Pat The Manager, sued the Chicago emcee for $3 million. Chance’s legal team responded to the suit days later but now is countersuing Corcoran.
The Chicago Tribune reports the new lawsuit was filed in Cook County court. The suit was filed last week and is aiming to dismiss the multiple counts stated in the original lawsuit and in return wants over $1 million for each of the counts in the original lawsuit.
“Mr. Corcoran has been paid in full under his management services contract with Mr. Bennett. Yet he chose to file a groundless and insulting lawsuit that ignores his own improper self-dealing and incompetence,” Bennett’s attorneys said in a statement to the Tribune. “Mr. Bennett has moved to dismiss the majority of that meritless lawsuit, and filed his own lawsuit to remedy the harm that Mr. Corcoran caused through his breaches of duty. Mr. Bennett trusts the legal system to reveal the truth of the parties’ relationship in due course.”
