ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) A club promoter how is seeking a breach of lawsuit decision against 21 Savage has refiled her claim as a civil case after it was rejected as a felony case.
Sadaetirs Kent Smith alleges that the Atlanta-based rapper accepted a payment of $16,500 for a Sept. 4, 2016 concert at Club Bo-Maz in Hinesville, Ga., but did not perform.

The Liberty County District Attorney recently rejected the felony case, deeming it a civil matter, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Smith has refiled the case, requesting a trial by jury.

The promoter filed a warrant in 2016 but did not pursue it until the rapper was arrested in February for overstaying his visa and residing in the country illegally.
