Rapper Travis Scott has been sued for cancelling a concert two days after Kylie Jenner gave birth to their first child.
The couple's daughter, Stormi Webster, was born on February 1 this year.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, PJAM Entertainment has sued the rapper - whose real name is Jacques Webster - for cancelling a Minneapolis concert scheduled for February 3.
The company claims that the rapper was paid an advance of USD 150,000 to perform at a Super Bowl Weekend event.
PJAM said that Scott "advised" the promoter that "despite his contractual obligations, he refused to show up for the event."

"As a result of this breach, (PJAM) suffered significant damages including the sums paid to XX Global (the legal agent and representative of Scott) and (Scott) and their booking agent, the sums paid to arrange Webster's travel, the sum's paid to advertise the event, lease the venue and hire staff, and the lost profits (PJAM) would have realised on this event," the company said.
The company also claimed that Scott's agent was paid a USD 10,000 booking fee and had scheduled a private jet to fly the rapper to the venue.
PJAM is seeking their USD 150,000 back from Scott, as well as attorney's fees, pre-judgment interest and alleged "reputational damages" the company claims to have suffered as a result of his cancellation.
Scott is yet comment on the lawsuit.
