Montero Might Pay $1 Million Over Trashed House Lawsuit
Lil Nas X is facing a new lawsuit. The "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" hitmaker has been slapped with a $1 million lawsuit after being part of a party that left a Hollywood mansion trashed in April 2022.
According to TMZ, legal docs have been filed on behalf of landlord Daniel Fitzgerald naming the "Old Town Road" artist and producer Zedd, along with the party's promoters and sponsors, as defendants in the seven-figure lawsuit.
Fitzgerald claimed that he warned the parties renting the luxury Hollywood Hills mansion that parties weren't allowed, but that didn't stop the crew from welcoming over 1,000 people into the rage, which allegedly left the place with plenty of damage.
Fitzgerald also alleged that there was $25,000 in damages to the couches, walls, chairs, and more inside the four-story mansion equipped with an in-ground pool. With the extensive fixes taking months, he's claiming he lost out on a couple of months of rent to $40,000.
The lawsuit claimed that Nas X and Zedd were paid $250,000 to appear at the rager last April, and he's seeking $1 million worth of compensatory and punitive damages.
