Rapper-Candidate Was Evicted, Landlord Says

MIAMI (CN) - Luther Campbell, the 2 Live Crew singer running for mayor of Miami, was evicted from an office for failing to pay rent 3 years ago, the landlord claims in Miami-Dade County Court.

NR Park Centre claims Campbell signed a 3-year lease to run his business, Luke Entertainment, out of the office in Miami Gardens.

The lease began in October 2007, and "Campbell and Luke's staff occupied the premises pursuant to the lease, and proceeded to conduct their business from there," the complaint states.

But the defendants did not pay rent for May and June 2008, the landlord says, so it evicted them.

"Luke removed some of its personal property from the premises, but did not vacate the unit," NR Park Centre claims.

Also named as defendants are Luke Entertainment CEO Victor Nappe and Greene Concepts, a successor to Luke Entertainment.

NR Park Centre seeks damages for breach of contract, attorney's fees, and past due rent. It is represented by Dora Acherman.
