New York, NY – Fat Joe is being sued by the man who helped him open up a sneaker shop. TMZ reports Scott Spina, who co-founded UP NYC with Joe in November 2016, is suing the Terror Squad leader for allegedly cheating him out of money after kicking him out of the business.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Spina claims he contributed $150,000 of his own money to start the shop and pulled in an additional $300,000 from investors and loans. While the opening went well, reportedly earning $175,000 on the first day, Spina was booted from UP NYC just 20 days later.
Spina — known by nickname Scotty Kickz — claims Joe still owes him the $150,000 that he invested in the business on his own, plus what he believes is his rightful share of UP NYC. As a result, he's suing the veteran MC over the money.
