R+B star Bobby V has been slapped with a lawsuit for failing to appear at a concert.

In a suit filed last week (ends02DEC05) in Santa Clarita, California, promoter KASIB MAHDI claims that the SLOW DOWN singer and his manager knew he would be a no-show when they made the deal for the 29 April (05) performance in the first place.

Mahdi is seeking $116,000 (GBP64,400), reports MTV News.

Both sides are due to face off in court on 11 April (05).
