In a lawsuit filed by entertainment events company PJAM on March 20 and obtained by The Blast on Wednesday, Scott — born Jacques Webster — was contractually scheduled to perform at Myth Live nightclub near Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Feb. 3, one day before Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4.

The pre-scheduled show came two days after Jenner, 20, gave birth to Stormi on Feb. 1.

In addition, a private jet was arranged for Scott’s travel accommodations. The contract states Scott was guaranteed $200,000 in total.
“As a result of this breach, suffered significant damages including the sums paid to XX Global and and their booking agent, the sums paid to arrange Webster’s travel, the sum’s paid to advertise the event, lease the venue and hire staff, and the lost profits would have realized on this event,” the suit states.
